Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is officially clear of any wrongdoing following a May 13 arrest on suspicion of domestic violence.

Earlier this month, Jeudy, 23, was arrested by Arapahoe County, Colorado police on charges of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer. Such an offense is considered a misdemeanor in Colorado.

A local news outlet claimed the arrest occured following incident between the Broncos talent and the mother of his one-month old child. And that Jeudy reportedly admitted to taking a wallet and baby formula belonging to the woman after she took one of his phones.
