Rep. Lauren Boebert Granted Restraining Order Against Ex-Husband

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert has been granted a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband, Jayson Boebert.

The order also applies to the former couple's three minor sons.

The Colorado Sun reports:

In requesting the order, the Republican congresswoman filled out a checklist alleging incidents ranging from name calling and harassing phone calls to “abusing children in household” between 2022 and Friday.

The most recent incident alleged in the chart was Friday, when the congresswoman claimed there was an instance of “threat by damage to property.” Lauren Boebert indicated on the form that police were called. The Colorado Sun verified that claim by obtaining an incident report from the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, which said it was called to the Boeberts’ property by the congresswoman as she attempted to retrieve some items.

The couple has had a messy public divorce, with Jayson Boebert being arrested last month over two alleged domestic violence incidents.

On January 6, the former couple got into a heated fight at a restaurant.

"The second incident happened Jan. 9 when Jayson allegedly attacked the couple’s 18-year-old son and grabbed a rifle after the teen called authorities," the newspaper reports.

Jayson Boebert has been charged with assault, disorderly conduct, third-degree criminal trespass, and obstructing a peace officer over the two incidents.

The temporary restraining order states that he cannot contact his ex-wife or their three children and may not come within 100 yards of them.

On Thursday, a Garfield County court will hear arguments about making the order permanent.

Jayson Boebert told the Sun that the order is "sad" and an attempt to justify her move to another, redder district.

"This only seems to be a desperate move to justify her move to the 4th District … at the expense of my suffering," he told the paper. "I have been raising my boys for the last four years alone while she has chosen to live a different lifestyle free of family responsibilities, with no participation as a mother or a member of our family."

The congresswoman also made headlines in September after being caught on camera being groped by a Democrat bar owner in a theater. Eventually, she and her date were kicked out of the performance.
