Under Colorado’s Title 18, a person commits the crime of second degree criminal tampering if he/she “tampers with 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.”

The domestic violence enhancer could essentially increase penalties if Jeudy is charged and convicted. 

Public information officer John Bartmann previously told Fox News that Jeudy wouldn’t get any preferential treatment despite his status as an NFL player. 

“He’s not going to get any preferential treatment,” Bartmann said. “Back to the line.”

Jeudy, the No. 15 overall pick by the Broncos in the 2020 NFL Draft, is expected to be one of the top receiving targets for newly traded quarterback Russell Wilson.

BRONCOS’ JERRY JEUDY HAS HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR RUSSELL WILSON: ‘HE’S GOING TO HELP ME A LOT THIS YEAR’

“He could help me a lot. He’s a great quarterback – a Hall of Fame [caliber] quarterback that came to the offense as a leader. [He’s] getting me better as well. He’s going to help me a lot this year,” Jeudy told reporters last week.

Jeudy was hampered by an ankle injury for most of last season, as he played in 10 games and had 38 catches for 467 yards and failed to score a touchdown.
