Lauren Boebert’s Son Arrested

Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert’s 18-year-old son was arrested on February 27 in connection to a string of vehicle break-ins and property thefts in Rifle, Colorado, CBS News reported.

According to a statement from the Rifle Police Department, Tyler Boebert faces five felony charges, including criminal possession of identification documents and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Tyler Boebert, who is also facing another 22 misdemeanor charges, was booked into Garfield County Jail where he remained until posting a $1,250 bond on February 28.

Boebert is scheduled to appear in court on April 11.

Rep. Boebert said in a statement last week that her son had been through “difficult” and “public challenges” that have made him the subject of uninvited attention. She said that “as an adult and father,” her son would “take responsibility for his actions.” She insisted that “just like any other citizen,” her son should be “held accountable” for the decisions he made.

Tyler’s arrest was the latest in a series of public scandals plaguing the Boebert family in recent months.

The congresswoman’s ex-husband Jayson Boebert was arrested for two separate incidents in January.

In early February, Rep. Boebert was granted a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband after he allegedly entered her home without permission and threatened to harm her.

Boebert created a firestorm last fall after she was thrown out of a Denver performance of the musical “Beetlejuice” for vaping in the theater and “causing a disturbance” during the production. Surveillance footage from the theater also showed Boebert and her date getting inappropriately physical during the show.

The controversial Republican congresswoman barely won reelection in Colorado’s 3rd District in the 2022 Midterm. Faced with a possible defeat in 2024, Boebert recently announced that she would run for Congress in a safer Colorado district.
