Jeudy’s girlfriend asks that the case against him be dismissed

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

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

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

Although authorities have not alleged Jeudy committed abuse, the sheriff’s office said such enhancers are typically added to cases where there is an intimate relationship between victim and suspect.

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

After the hearing, Jeudy’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, said Jeudy had done nothing that constituted a crime and that the domestic violence label should not have been applied to his case since he did not there had been no violence or attempted violence.

“Bad things happen to good people, and that’s what this case is,” Steinberg said.
