- In December, Lauren Boebert’s teen son called 911 to report his dad was “throwing me” in the house.
- The teen sobbed throughout the two-minute call, saying he didn’t understand why his dad was mad.
- The boy called back soon after, denying it happened, with Boebert jumping on to say he was safe.
Minutes after the call ended — while Garfield County Sheriff’s Office deputies were on their way to their home — the teen called again to take the accusations back, with Lauren Boebert jumping on the phone to say her son “doesn’t need help.”
Jayson Boebert denied to the deputies — and to Insider — that he had gotten physical with the teen.
“The safety and well-being of my family are the most important things in the world to me,” Lauren Boebert told Insider on Thursday. “We’ve had some tough times and heartache. I’ve taken action to ensure there are better days ahead for all of us.”
An affidavit says when Jayson Boebert was served with the petition, he became “extremely angry.”
“He started yelling and using profanities,” the server wrote of what transpired.
Lauren Boebert denied that her husband reacted this way, calling it a “complete lie.”
Still, the congresswoman is suing for parental-decision-making power and child support for their four sons. In a statement on the divorce, Boebert said she would not “discuss this matter any further in public” in deference to their kids.
In the December 11 emergency call, which came about four months before the divorce filing, Boebert’s son told the dispatcher his mother had been living in a farmhouse at an attached property because the family was having “problems.”
In the 6:46 p.m. call, obtained by Insider, the teen was sobbing, gasping for air, and had trouble speaking while saying his dad was “throwing me around.”
