According to a tweet from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, Jeudy is on a no-bond hold, which means he must appear before a judge before he can be released, AL.com reported.

“We are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information,” the Broncos said in a statement sent to the newspaper.

According to the Colorado Revised Statues, second-degree criminal tampering occurs if someone “tampers with (the) property of another with intent to cause injury, inconvenience or annoyance to that person or to another or if he knowingly makes an unauthorized connection with property of a utility.”
