This altercation happened just after Lauren Boebert, a Republican, announced that she would be switching congressional districts to avoid a likely rematch against a Democrat who has significantly outraised her in funding. The incident also follows a previous embarrassing moment involving groping and vaping, which even shook some of her loyal supporters. It’s worth noting that the Boeberts’ divorce was finalized in October.
Jayson Boebert did not provide a comment on the matter. However, he had previously told the Denver Post that he no longer wished to press charges, stating that he and Lauren were working through a difficult conversation.
Police reported that there were no surveillance videos or eyewitness statements available to shed light on what exactly transpired during the incident. Additionally, no injuries were found on Jayson Boebert.
Investigating Allegations of Domestic Violence Against Rep. Lauren Boebert
Police have officially announced that the allegations of domestic violence against Rep. Lauren Boebert are unfounded, closing the investigation into the matter. According to a statement from law enforcement, no evidence was found to support the accusations.
In a statement to the police, Boebert revealed that she had met her ex-husband at a restaurant in an attempt to have a conversation and reconcile their differences. The discussion took a heated turn when they started discussing their new partners. At one point, Boebert placed her finger on her ex-husband’s nose to signal the end of the conversation. However, according to the arrest affidavit, her ex-husband called 911 while allegedly highly intoxicated, claiming he had been punched in the face.
During the incident, Boebert’s ex-husband reportedly told her, “Congratulations, your name is going to be in the headline,” as stated in the affidavit. Boebert expressed concerns that her ex-husband was intentionally trying to make her suffer, similar to the difficulties she has faced during their divorce.
Aside from this incident, Boebert has faced public scrutiny before. In Denver, she and a guest were asked to leave a musical performance of “Beetlejuice” due to complaints about vaping, singing, and disruptive phone usage. Boebert later offered an apology for her behavior.
During her time in Washington, Boebert has gained national attention and aligned herself with the extreme right wing of the GOP. She made headlines when she boldly heckled President Joe Biden during his 2022 State of the Union address. Her assertive style and controversial actions continue to generate media coverage.
