Silt police investigating incident between Lauren Boebert, ex-husband


The Silt Police Department is investigating a Saturday night incident at a restaurant involving U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert and her ex-husband Jayson Boebert.

Silt police Chief Mike Kite confirmed the investigation to The Denver Post but said he could not provide more details because police were still gathering facts.

Police were called to the Miner’s Claim restaurant in Silt on Saturday night, but Kite declined to describe the nature of the incident or the accusations. The Silt Police Department will release its report on the incident once the investigation concludes, he said.

“We have a lot of facts and stuff to get sorted out,” Kite said.

No one was taken into custody at the restaurant, he said.

In a statement to The Denver Post from her campaign manager, Boebert said, “This is a sad situation for all that keeps escalating and another reason I’m moving. I didn’t punch Jayson in the face and no one was arrested.”

Boebert said she intends to consult with her lawyer about her ex-husband’s claims about her on Saturday night.

Jayson Boebert told The Denver Post in a short 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 conversation without answering more questions about what happened.

Lauren Boebert, who represents Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, filed for divorce from her husband in April, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce became final in October. The couple married in 2005 and they have four sons and one grandchild.

The incident involving the Boeberts was first reported Saturday night by American Muckrakers, a political group working to oust the second-term congresswoman. The group reported on X that Boebert twice punched her husband and then called police.

However, Kite would not confirm that report. He said police were requesting video footage from the restaurant.

Both Boeberts have law enforcement records.

Lauren Boebert was arrested and summonsed at least four times for petty crimes prior to being elected to Congress. One of those cases was dropped.

Jayson Boebert was arrested in 2004 and pleaded guilty to public indecency and lewd exposure after exposing himself to two minors in a bowling alley.
