In a recent incident that has garnered public attention, Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert was involved in a contentious altercation with her ex-husband, Jayson Boebert, at a restaurant in Silt, Colorado. The congresswoman, known for her outspoken nature, reportedly had a physical confrontation with Jayson, leading to a police call.
The incident occurred on a Saturday evening at the Miner’s Claim restaurant, located in Boebert’s congressional district. According to reports, the argument between the two escalated, with allegations that Lauren Boebert struck Jayson in the face. However, Lauren Boebert has denied these claims, stating that she did not punch her ex-husband and that no arrests were made. She also mentioned her intention to consult with her lawyer regarding the false claims made against her.
An aide to Boebert described the situation, alleging that Jayson made an aggressive move towards Lauren, prompting her to defend herself by placing her hand on his nose. Despite this, another account suggested that Lauren managed to land two punches on Jayson’s nose, leading him to contact local police as a victim of domestic violence.
The police were reportedly called to the scene to address the domestic assault allegation. Jayson Boebert later informed the Denver Post that he did not wish to press charges, describing the incident as part of a difficult conversation between him and his ex-wife.
The Boeberts, who divorced in 2023 citing irreconcilable differences, have had a tumultuous relationship. Lauren Boebert, in a statement at the time of their divorce, expressed her gratitude for their years of marriage and their children.
This incident is not the first time Lauren Boebert has been involved in high-profile disputes. She has previously made headlines for various reasons, including a public disagreement with Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and a controversial incident at a theater performance.
The Silt Police Department is said to be conducting an active investigation into the recent altercation. However, details of the investigation and any potential outcomes remain unclear.
