Congresswoman Lauren Boebert withdraws restraining order against former spouse

During a court hearing on Monday afternoon, U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado decided to drop the protection order against her ex-husband, Jayson Boebert.

During the hearing, Lauren Boebert, participating through WebEx, respectfully requested Judge Jonathan Pototsky to consider the dissolution of the protection order. Boebert emphasized that both parties had mutually agreed that the order was no longer necessary.

Jayson Boebert, who was present in the courtroom, confirmed this, leading to the dismissal of the order by the judge.

Lauren Boebert secured a temporary restraining order in February against her ex-husband, alleging threats and unauthorized entry into their family home. The order, granted by a judge, also extended protection to three of their children. Jayson Boebert has refuted the accusations, denying any involvement in breaking into the house or threatening his former spouse.

Jayson Boebert had been caught up in two separate criminal cases. One of the cases revolved around an incident at a restaurant, while the other involved an alleged assault on Tyler Boebert, their 18-year-old son. On Monday afternoon, Jayson appeared in court to address these cases, along with the previously dismissed protection order.

Jayson Boebert faced charges of disorderly conduct, third-degree trespassing, and obstructing a peace officer following an incident on January 6, 2024. The incident took place in a restaurant in Silt, where he was reported to have had an argument with Lauren Boebert. Subsequently, he allegedly engaged in a drunken outburst with officers who were attempting to remove him from the premises. Court records indicate that he was arrested but later released on the same day.

On Monday morning, the prosecution requested a protection order that identified Tyler Boebert as the victim. The defense expressed no objection to this request.

The charges are related to a series of vehicle break-ins and credit card thefts, according to the local police department. The case is still ongoing, and Boebert is scheduled to appear in court on April 11.
