Alabama fans and Broncos fans were shocked on Thursday to hear the news about wide receiver Jerry Jeudy getting arrested for second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer.

Social media quickly grabbed the news as he’s on a no-bond hold in Arapahoe County, Colo. The arrested happened at noon, but Fox 31 News in Colorado has more details from the incident. According to the outlet, the mother of Jeudy’s 1-month-old child said “things got crazy” between her and him. She said, “he put her wallet and medical paperwork for their child in his car and would not let her get access to it.” The woman said Jeudy was controlling her property, per the report, but no physical violence occurred.

Jeudy is on a misdemeanor charge, and the former first-round pick of the 2020 NFL Draft is scheduled to be in court Friday at 9:30 a.m. If he is found guilty of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, Jeudy could serve up to six months in jail. He had a good rookie season for the Broncos, posting 52 catches for 856 yards and three touchdowns in 2020.

A high ankle sprain limited Jeudy to 10 games in 2021. His production dropped as he had 38 receptions for 467 yards.

As a former All-American, Biletnikoff Award winner, and first-team All-SEC selection, Jeudy helped Alabama to a College Football Playoff National Championship as a freshman in 2017. He was an exceptional five-star recruit from Deerfield Beach (Fla.) High School in the 2017 class. Jeudy was one of the first players to get excited about having Russell Wilson in Denver.

He is now in a difficult situation after Thursday’s news.
