Jeudy's girlfriend asks charges be dismissed

Associated Press

DENVER – The girlfriend of Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy asked a judge Friday to dismiss a misdemeanor case against him stemming from a dispute between them.

The woman, who has a 1-month-old child with Jeudy, told Judge Chantel Contiguglia she did not feel threatened during the incident and made contact with authorities to “monitor the situation,” the Denver Post reported.

Jeudy, 23, was arrested Thursday at the couple's suburban Denver home after his girlfriend reported that he had locked some of her belongings and items for the baby in his car, preventing her from returning to Virginia. He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer, a misdemeanor, and spent the night in jail until he could appear before a judge because of the enhancer.

Contiguglia did not immediately decide what should happen with the case but allowed Jeudy to be released from jail and allowed him to travel. He is scheduled to appear in court again on May 31.
