Broncos wide receiver arrested
As reported by ESPN, Denver Broncos player Jerry Jeudy, 23, faces a charge of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer. The ACSD has held Jeudy on bond until he appears in front of a judge today (Friday, 13 May).
ESPN reports Jeudy prevented his girlfriend from accessing her wallet, medical information for their child, and a car seat. Jeudy confessed to locking some of those items in his car but said he did so because his partner had taken one of his three cellphones and wouldn’t give it back.
“There was no physical contact between Mr Jeudy and the female party,” Arapahoe County sheriff Tyler Brown confirmed. “It solely involved property.”
The Broncos responded to the arrest news stating, as per Pro Football Network: “We are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information.”

What we know about Jerry Jeudy’s girlfriend, Antoinette
Antoinette Tharp is the girlfriend of Broncos star Jerry Jeudy, and the two share a child.
Tharp has spoken out about the night of Jeudy’s arrest, telling officials “things got crazy” after the sports player allegedly locked property in his car to prevent her from accessing it.
She later said she didn’t want to get Jeudy in “trouble”, she only wanted her belongings. Tharp ended up calling the police from a neighbour’s house, ESPN reports. Deputies were dispatched following a “keep the peace” request.
It is unclear how long the couple have been dating, but we know they share a one-month-old infant.
Jeudy is father to another child
Outside of his relationship with Tharp, Jerry Jeudy is the father of another child.
The Broncos player’s daughter, Journee Aaliyah Jeudy, was welcomed in 2020 when Jeudy was in a previous relationship.
His daughter’s middle name is in tribute to his sister Aaliyah, who sadly passed away from a rare condition when she was only seven years old.
