U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert’s ex-husband arrested on trespassing, obstruction, disorderly conduct charges

Jayson Boebert, U.S. Rep Lauren Boebert’s ex-husband, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief days after a public incident at a restaurant in western Colorado, according to court records.

Silt Police Chief Mike Kite on Wednesday confirmed in a phone call that three arresting charges — trespassing, obstruction of a police officer and disorderly conduct — were part of an arrest warrant for Jayson Boebert that Silt police had obtained in connection to the incident at Miner’s Claim restaurant in Silt.

Police were called to the restaurant on Saturday night for an incident involving Lauren and Jayson Boebert, Kite confirmed to The Denver Post over the weekend, but Kite declined at the time to describe the incident or any of the accusations.

Garfield County sheriff’s deputies arrested Jayson Boebert Tuesday, according to online court records.

Additionally, Colorado Bureau of Investigation records show another charge, prohibited aiming of a firearm, involved in Jayson Boebert’s Tuesday arrest.

Kite said the assault, firearm and obstruction charges were from a separate Garfield County sheriff’s warrant, and he declined to elaborate on where that came from.

Garfield County jail records show Jayson Boebert was released from the jail Tuesday. His bail was set at $1,000 for the criminal mischief charge and $1,500 for the assault charge, according to court records.

Jayson Boebert told The Post in a short Sunday phone interview that he called the Silt Police Department on Sunday morning and told police he does not want to press charges.

“I don’t want nothing to happen,” Jayson Boebert said. “Her and I were working through a difficult conversation.”

Jayson Boebert ended the interview without answering more questions about what happened.
