Colorado House Rep. Lauren Boebert’s teenage son called 911 on Sunday, December 11, 2022 to report that his father, Jayson Boebert, was “throwing me across the house.” The son sounded hysterical, and was sobbing and breathless at the beginning of the call.
“He just started yelling at me and he started throwing me,” the teen said. He then added that his dad had told him to leave the property and yelled at him to get away.
The teen added, “He just does this to me so much.”
Shortly after that, the teen made a second 911 call in which he essentially recanted his story of abuse. Lauren Boebert can be heard talking in the background of the second call, in which the boy explains that he and his dad were starting to yell and and “he didn’t really get physical with me. It was just like, I was just overwhelmed.”
Lauren Boebert then takes the phone from the boy and tells the dispatcher they had had a argument during dinner, that she is at a “second location, getting things ready for an event” and she knew they (the police) had to come out and check on the incident. The dispatcher says she was aware they were at the farmhouse and says the police are on the way there to “help him.”
Boebert responds that “he doesn’t need help, but they can come here.”
The event preceded Lauren Boebert filing for divorce from Jayson in early May, 2023, after 18 years of marriage and four children.
Lauren Boebert has long portrayed herself as a religious, Christian “family values” conservative and has even urged women in rocky marriages to “chase Jesus” as a way to solve their marital problems.
