Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) ex-husband Jayson has been arrested on multiple charges, including the alleged assault of their son, according to reports.
Law enforcement officials in Colorado arrested Jayson Boebert this week on charges stemming from two incidents.
He has been hit with a total of six criminal charges.
The charges include third-degree assault, harassment, prohibited use of weapons, obstructing a peace officer, disorderly conduct, trespassing, and obstruction of a police officer.
USA Today reported that the first set of charges stemmed from an incident that unfolded over the weekend at a restaurant in Lauren Boebert’s district.
During the incident, Jayson Boebert called the police and alleged that the congresswoman hit him.
Upon investigation, however, police found that there was no evidence that Lauren Boebert attacked her ex-husband, authorities announced on Wednesday.
Police said that when they arrived on the scene, Lauren Boebert was “cooperative with law enforcement” during their initial contact.
Her ex-husband, meanwhile, “was highly intoxicated, yelling at officers, and was uncooperative with the investigation.”
“Although he claimed he had been punched in the face, officers observed no marks or injury on Jayson Boebert to corroborate he had actually been assaulted,” police said in a statement.
“Staff at Miner’s Claim restaurant requested Jayson leave the restaurant due to the level of disturbance he was creating.
“Officers requested Jayson Boebert to leave the restaurant multiple times; however, he was uncooperative and was physically removed from the restaurant by law enforcement personnel.”
Police said that he later recanted any claims of domestic violence that he made against his ex-wife.
He was charged with third-degree criminal trespass and disorderly conduct stemming from the incident.
The remaining charges that he faces stemmed from a separate incident that unfolded on Tuesday.
During the second incident, police received a call from Tyler Boebert, the former couple’s oldest son.
Tyler “told a dispatcher that his father had pushed him to the ground, put his hand in his mouth, and thrown his phone across the house,” Business Insider reported.
“When Jayson heard the 911 call, Tyler also said that his dad had grabbed a rifle but he couldn’t give an exact description since ‘there was many firearms in the residence and [he] was unable to say what type of rifle it was.’
“Tyler also said during the call that he suspected his father was under the influence of alcohol.”
