UPDATE: Lauren Boebert’s Ex-Husband Assaulted Eldest Son Tyler, Shoved Thumb in His Mouth


Representative Lauren Boebert’s ex-husband, Jayson, was taken into custody on two separate arrest warrants Tuesday, January 9 — one for his reported restaurant fight with the Colorado congresswoman, and another for allegedly assaulting their eldest son, Tyler, during an argument at their house in Garfield County, the arrest affidavit says. According to Tyler, Jayson had berated and attacked him for placing his young child in a “laundry basket” to sleep. The Boeberts have been taking care of Tyler’s son, who was born last year.

“Tyler had determined that the laundry basket was not a hazard…and it was better for [the child] to sleep in laundry basket, full of clothes, rather than on the bed and risk falling,” the affidavit says. “At some point…Jayson returned to the bedroom where Tyler was. Tyler advised [police] Jayson hit his (Tyler’s) legs and began to ask him why [the child] was in a laundry basket. … Tyler attempted to explain to Jayson that [the child] was fine in the laundry basket. While Jayson continued to question Tyler, Jayson attempted to grab Tyler’s phone several times. Tyler advised that because Jayson was under the influence of alcohol, he was clumsy and dropped the phone several times. Tyler believed he was under the influence because he was only clumsy when he drank alcohol and he had slurred speech.”

According to the affidavit, Tyler tried to “get to his phone,” and that’s when Jayson allegedly “shoved” him. Tyler described the shove as Jayson “placing one hand in the area of his throat/neck and pushing back.” The affidavit says that “Tyler became upset at this point and a physical altercation began between Jayson and him.” During the altercation, Jayson allegedly “stuck his right hand thumb into Tyler’s mouth.” Tyler told police it felt like his dad was going to “pull his tooth out.” Once the altercation stopped, Tyler was able to reach his phone and called the cops. “Tyler advised that when Jayson saw that Tyler was on the phone with dispatch, Jayson grabbed the rifle,” according to the affidavit.


The Garfield sheriff deputy who rushed to the scene reported in the affidavit that she could hear yelling coming across the open line. Boebert then threw his son to the ground and “pushed his thumb” into the teen’s mouth, the records showed.

When Deputy Ashley Ramirez arrived at the residence outside of Silt, she reported that Jayson Boebert had gotten his rifle when his son called police, so she stayed at the top of the driveway.

“Considering the last known information was that Jayson was still armed with a rifle, I exited my patrol vehicle with my rifle,” Ramirez wrote in the arrest affidavit.

Tuesday morning’s incident was a separate event from the one that happened over the weekend, which, the Silt Police said, involved an altercation between Lauren and Jayson Boebert.

 In that incident, Silt police and Garfield County Sheriff’s deputies spent two-and-a-half hours dealing with the situation, according to the arrest affidavit. During that time, Jayson Boebert was asked eight times to leave the crowded restaurant by police and he allegedly cussed at law enforcement and continued to drink while they were responding, the affidavit said. 


Officers said that he was drinking what appeared to be an alcoholic beverage while they were talking to him and he continued “to fail to cooperate with officers’ attempts to speak with him.” The arrest affidavit also details several attempts by the manager of the restaurant and officers to get Jayson Boebert to leave, to no avail. He also continued to yell at officers, according to the court documents, even after he was removed from the restaurant. The document states that Jayson Boebert was asked no less than eight times over a 6-minute period to leave the restaurant, not by the manager, but by law enforcement. 

He is facing three charges related to that incident; disorderly conduct, third-degree trespass and obstruction of a peace officer. The Silt Police Department announced on Wednesday afternoon that Lauren Boebert has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
