Reports emerged yesterday that Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was taken into custody and charged with a misdemeanor related to a domestic violence investigation. And now, more details concerning the arrest have been made public. 

According to Jeudy's girlfriend, he put several of her personal items, including her wallet as well as medical paperwork for their child in the backseat of his car and locked it so that she couldn't access them.

Per USA Today: 

"According to a police report submitted to the Arapahoe County court, Jeudy’s girlfriend, Antoinette Tharp, told a deputy that “things got crazy” with Jeudy on Wednesday night and he put her wallet and medical paperwork for their infant child in his car at their home so she could not get them.

She said she wanted to go back to Virginia but could not leave without those belongings, telling the deputy she did not want to get Jeudy in “trouble” but just wanted her things back.

According to the document, Jeudy admitted to locking some things in his car, including baby formula, because Tharp took one of his three cell phones and would not give it back."

Needless to say, Jeudy didn't want whatever was on his phone to be seen. And according to Sheriff Tyler Brown, Jeudy was cooperative throughout the process.

“The second portion of this is a domestic violence enhancer and I know the word ‘violence’ connotates physical contact. I can tell you specifically that there was no physical contact between Mr. Jeudy and the female party in this investigation. It solely involved property,” Brown said.

“There was no damage to property,” the sheriff added. “All that happened is that there was an accusation that property was being withheld and deputies determined that there was enough probable cause to make an arrest.”
