Congresswoman’s Son Arrested On 22 Counts

Colorado Congressman Lauren Boebert’s oldest son, Tyler Boebert, was arrested on Tuesday and is facing a total of 22 criminal charges, including five felonies. The charges stem from a series of alleged thefts that occurred in Colorado. According to the Rifle Police Department, Tyler Boebert, who is 18 years old, has been charged with five felony counts, including four for criminal possession of ID documents with multiple victims and one for conspiracy to commit a crime.

In addition to the felony charges, Tyler Boebert also faces misdemeanor charges for four counts of first-degree criminal trespassing of an automobile with intent to commit a crime, four counts of identity theft, possession with the intent to use, and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He is also facing three petty offenses for theft of less than $300.

This is not the first time that Tyler Boebert has run into trouble with the law. In 2022, he was involved in a single-vehicle accident where he flipped his father’s SUV into a creek bed in Garfield County. His friend, who was 19 at the time, was injured in the crash. As a result, Tyler was ticketed for “careless driving causing bodily injury.”

However, the case was brought down to a flawed vehicle for headlights ticket as part of a plea deal. Tyler was also ordered to attend the “Alive at 25” driver awareness program. He was supposed to appear in court in April 2023 to provide proof of completion, but he failed to do so. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest, and he eventually called the court to reschedule the hearing for a later date when he would appear virtually. He then reportedly sent in his completion certificate for the “Alive at 25” program.

The arrest comes just a few months after Tyler Boebert became a father himself. In June, the Republican Congresswoman’s son and his girlfriend welcomed their first child, making Lauren Boebert a grandmother at the age of 36. This is not the only recent controversy surrounding Lauren Boebert and her family.

Earlier this month, the congresswoman was granted a restraining order against her ex-husband, Jayson Boebert. She claimed that he had made multiple suicidal threats and threatened to harm her and her children over the past 14 months.

According to court documents, Jayson Boebert was released on bail following his arrest on assault charges just one day after he claimed that Lauren had punched him in the face. In response to the allegations, Lauren filed for a restraining order to protect herself and her children. While her three younger children were included in the order, Tyler, being an adult, was not included.

In December, Lauren Boebert announced that she would not seek re-election for her current seat, but instead run for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District in the upcoming election. She stated that she would do everything in her power to represent the 3rd District well for the remainder of her term while also working to earn the trust of conservative voters in the 4th District.

Boebert currently has a nearly $1.3 million war chest, according to federal campaign finance filings. She will face a crowded field of four other Republican candidates, including former Colorado state Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg, in the primary election on June 25.

In a recent straw poll, Boebert finished fifth, behind Sonnenberg, state representative Mike Lynch, Deborah Flora, and state representative Richard Holtorf, in that order. The winner of the Republican primary will face off against the Democratic candidate in the general election in November. As of this writing, Tyler Boebert remains in police custody, and no statement has been made from his family regarding his arrest.
