Restraining order issued in favor of Lauren Boebert against former spouse.

Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has been granted a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband Jayson Boebert. The Republican representing Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District was granted the order on Friday, Feb. 2, after requesting it in Garfield County court.

According to court documents, Boebert was scheduled for a hearing on Thursday morning to make the temporary restraining order permanent. The order was granted due to domestic abuse allegations against Jayson Boebert, who was recently arrested in two separate incidents.

The first incident occurred on Jan. 6 at a restaurant in Silt, Colorado, where Jayson Boebert allegedly engaged in disorderly conduct, third-degree trespass, and obstruction of a peace officer with his ex-wife. The second incident took place on Jan. 9 at a residence outside Silt, where his 18-year-old son called authorities after Jayson Boebert allegedly assaulted him and grabbed a rifle. He is facing charges of prohibited use of weapons, harassment, and assault in the third degree for this incident.

The couple’s divorce was finalized in October of last year. Since then, Lauren Boebert has made headlines for her controversial actions and statements, including her decision to run for reelection in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District instead of the 3rd. This district is currently represented by Republican U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, who announced last fall that he will not seek reelection in 2024 due to the Republican Party’s support of former President Donald Trump and their embrace of conspiracy theories.

Boebert narrowly won her 2022 bid for reelection against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, with a margin of just over 500 votes out of more than 300,000 ballots cast. Frisch has announced his intention to run for the district again.
