DENVER — Deputy Lauren Boebert now has a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband after she accused him of threatening to harm her and trespassing into the family home.
Congressman Boebert, a far-right Republican and staunch ally of former President Donald Trump, changed districts in December avoiding the difficult re-election bidand cited family turmoil as another reason he moved from Silt, Colorado to his new hometown of Windsor.
The judge’s order Friday for a temporary restraining order, which could become permanent at a hearing Thursday, also includes protections for the couple’s three young sons.
In his plea, he claimed the woman hit him after an argument at a restaurant on January 6 – a claim he later retracted and police eventually said it was unfounded. When police responded to the restaurant, Jayson Boebert was uncooperative led to accusations disorderly conduct, third-degree criminal trespass and obstructing a peace officer, according to court documents.
Jayson Boebert said he was just learning about the restraining order. In a text message to The Associated Press, she said she had gone to clean the house in preparation for her “grandma’s” arrival. He also said that he was actually a victim in the restaurant. “I would never hurt Lauren, I just want to move on and be at peace.”
He also accused his ex-wife of using the restraining order to “justify” his move to a new congressional district.
In her deposition, Boebert also cited a Jan. 9 physical fight between her ex-husband and their 18-year-old son. While their son called authorities, Jason Boebert took the rifle and left, according to court documents. Jason Boebert was charged with stalking, prohibited weapons and third-degree assault. Lauren Boebert was not present during that argument.
Jayson Boebert did not directly respond to specific questions about the Jan. 9 incident in text messages sent to the AP.
