Garfield County Sheriff’s deputies decided to let neighbors of Lauren Boebert settle a dispute between themselves and Jayson Boebert after he reportedly threatened them and destroyed their mailbox.
But the 911 calls show how upset and nervous the neighbors were over the incident with Mr. Boebert.
“I’m sure he’s loaded to the hilt. Do you know who his wife is? Lauren Boebert. She’s loaded. They all have guns,” one neighbor told a 911 dispatcher. “He just got chest to chest, face to face, looking to fight.”
By the time the second neighbor called 911, deputies hadn’t yet arrived. During that call, Jayson Boebert reportedly began to run the second neighbor’s mailbox over in a truck.
The incident began in the evening hours of Aug. 4, after a neighbor flagged down one of Boebert’s sons asking him to stop speeding up and down their street in a dune buggy, according to the calls and a short incident report filed by deputies.
Eventually deputies arrived and Sheriff Lou Vallario explained to reporters that they had “agreed to work it out as neighbors. No charges. No further action.” A sheriff’s department spokesperson refused to say why there was no further investigation and offered no other information.
Jayson Boebert did not respond to a message seeking comment, nor did the second neighbor. However, over the phone, the second neighbor told the 911 dispatcher that Jayson Boebert had driven to their house with his son “trying to claim that someone took a swing at his kid and nobody did.”
Jayson Boebert was previously arrested in 2004 and pleaded guilty to public indecency and lewd exposure after exposing himself to two minors in a bowling alley. The congresswoman who is not mentioned in any account as being present during the Aug. 4 incident also has a history of minor arrests and failures to appear in court. Vallario supported her first run for office in 2020.
