(GoRealNewsNow.com) – An investigation is underway by the Silt Police Department in Colorado following an incident involving Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and her former husband, Jayson Boebert, at a local restaurant in Silt.
The incident, which occurred at Miner’s Claim restaurant, has garnered attention from several news outlets.
Silt Police Chief Mike Kite confirmed the investigation to The Denver Post, The Washington Post, and The Denver Gazette. However, he has not disclosed specific details about the nature of the incident. The Daily Beast, which first reported on the event, suggested that it involved a physical altercation.
Media has tried contacting both Chief Kite and Rep. Boebert’s office for further information and comments on the matter. Chief Kite emphasized the impartial approach of the investigation, stating to The Denver Gazette that it would be handled like any other case, including a review of surveillance footage.
Rep. Boebert, known for her outspoken and controversial persona, filed for divorce in 2023, finalizing it a few months later.
She and Jayson Boebert were married for nearly 18 years and share four sons.
This investigation is not Boebert’s first notable interaction with law enforcement; she was previously escorted from a “Beetlejuice” production at the Denver Performing Arts Center due to complaints about her behavior.
In a significant political move, Boebert announced in late December 2023 that she would not seek reelection in Colorado’s Third Congressional District. Instead, she aims to run for the Fourth Congressional District, a seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.).
This decision allows her to bypass a challenging rematch against Democrat Adam Frisch, whom she narrowly defeated in 2022.
Reflecting on her personal and political journey, Boebert described the past year as challenging, citing her divorce and political endeavors. In a December video, she expressed gratitude for the support she received, acknowledging her mistakes and the growth she experienced through these hardships.
