Congresswoman Boebert Faces Police Investigation Amidst Allegations of Physical Altercation

On the third anniversary of the Capitol attack by Donald Trump supporters, Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is under an active police investigation for an alleged physical altercation with her ex-husband, Jayson Boebert, at a restaurant in her district. The incident was first brought to light by the anti-Boebert super PAC "American Muckrakers."

According to reports, Jayson Boebert claimed to be a victim of domestic violence, stating that Lauren had punched him multiple times. However, Lauren Boebert denies these allegations and asserts the inaccuracy of social media posts depicting the events. No arrests were made, as confirmed by the Silt Police Department.

The altercation allegedly occurred when Lauren Boebert went to Jayson's house to pick up their son. As they were leaving for dinner, Jayson attempted to hug her, prompting Lauren to put her hand on his chest to maintain distance. Later that evening, after Jayson apologized and suggested a meeting, Lauren agreed to meet in a public place to avoid a potential confrontation.

The meeting took place at Miner's Claim, a local restaurant. According to reports, Jayson Boebert's behavior became disrespectful and lewd, leading to a physical altercation. Jayson allegedly made an aggressive move towards Lauren, prompting her to put her hand on his face. While social media posts claim that Lauren punched him, her aide maintains that she did not.

Jayson Boebert then called the police, claiming to be a victim of domestic violence. However, Lauren called the non-emergency number to clarify that there was no domestic violence and offered to speak with an officer at the restaurant. The police arrived but made no arrests, ensuring both parties' safety.

In a statement, Lauren Boebert described the situation as escalating and announced her intention to consult with her lawyer regarding the false claims made against her. Boebert, who recently announced her move to a more conservative district, narrowly won re-election in 2022 by only 500 votes.

Jayson Boebert later admitted to overreacting, expressing a desire for the best outcome for their children and acknowledging the deep-seated hurt between them. Despite the tumultuous incident, he emphasized his love for Lauren and suggested that remaining silent might be the best course of action.

The Silt Police Department confirmed an ongoing investigation into the alleged events but provided no further comments. The situation remains fluid, with conflicting accounts from both parties involved.
