Rep. Lauren Boebert’s son, Tyler, was arrested on an array of criminal charges this week.

The 18-year-old is accused of multiple vehicle trespasses and property thefts in the Colorado town where the congresswoman resides with her family.

Local police took Tyler into custody on Tuesday afternoon as they believe he is connected to various thefts, and he was subsequently charged with a total of 22 counts.

The four felony charges against the teenager include criminal possession of both financial devices and identification documents, along with conspiracy.

He was also charged with multiple misdemeanors related to criminal trespass, identity theft, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and petty theft.

Following the arrest, Tyler posted a $1,250 bond and secured his release.

He is scheduled for a court appearance in early April to address the many charges.

This incident marks another yet another legal entanglement for the Boebert family.

Rep. Lauren Boebert’s son called the cops on father

Just last month, Tyler was the one contacting law enforcement and alleging an assault by his father, Jayson Boebert, the Colorado politician’s ex-husband.

According to the report, Jayson allegedly jammed a finger into his son’s mouth with so much force that Tyler was concerned a tooth had been broken.

These allegations led to charges of harassment, third-degree assault, and prohibited weapon use against Jayson.

The assault against his child came after Jayson had been arrested over a dispute with Rep. Boebert days earlier.

That altercation also resulted in multiple charges, including third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, amongst others.

Following these events, Rep. Boebert filed for and was granted a temporary restraining order against Jayson, barring him from approaching her or their three minor children.

The order does not apply to Tyler because of his status as an adult.

In the court filing related to these family matters, Rep. Boebert alleged that her former spouse had made threats against her life and of self-harm over the previous year-plus.

Jayson Boebert has expressed no intent to harm his ex-wife, asserting his desire to “move on and be in peace” in a statement.

Boebert released a statement about her son’s alleged criminal activity on Wednesday.

“I love my son Tyler, who has been through some very difficult, public challenges for a young man and the subject of attention that he didn’t ask for,” she commented.

“It breaks my heart to see my child struggling and, in this situation, especially when he has been provided multiple opportunities to get his life on track,” the distraught politician added.

“As an adult and father, Tyler will take responsibility for his actions and should be held accountable for poor decisions just like any other citizen,” Boebert concluded.
