Police were called on this congresswoman and now Capitol Hill is in chaos

Politicians rarely face the consequences for their actions. But that’s not happening this time.

Because police were called on this congresswoman and now Capitol Hill is in chaos.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is under “active investigation” by Colorado authorities following an alleged physical confrontation with her ex-husband over the weekend.

According to The Daily Beast, the “alleged physical altercation” occurred on Saturday at Miner’s Claim restaurant in Boebert’s area.

Silt Police Chief Mike Kite told CBS News that an “active investigation” was already in progress.

According to The Washington Post, Boebert’s ex-husband, Jayson Boebert, called police and said he was a “victim of domestic violence” and that the lawmaker had “punched” him in the face multiple times.

Despite being the one who called the cops, Jayson Boebert told The Denver Post that he did not want his wife charged.

“I don’t want nothing to happen,” he said.

“Her and I were working through a difficult conversation.”

The lawmaker denied punching her ex-husband in the face and vowed legal action against anyone who made the charges.

“This is a sad situation for all that keeps escalating and another reason I’m moving,” Boebert said in a statement.

“I didn’t punch Jayson in the face and no one was arrested. I will be consulting with my lawyer about the false claims he made against me and evaluate all of my legal options.”

Boebert apologized in September after being ejected from a Beetlejuice show at Denver’s Buell Theater.

According to Denver Arts & Venues, they got three separate reports that Boebert and her date were “vaping, singing, and causing a disturbance.”

After Boebert was found vaping, the couple was warned several times, and the report said they “were causing a disturbance for the area with noise, singing, and using their cell phone.”

“The patrons were argumentative,” the statement read, warning them that if they continued, they would be ejected.

They were later told that they had to leave and that if they didn’t, they would be charged with trespassing and the police would be contacted.

A spokesperson for Boebert said that she was not vaping during the performance and that “heavy fog machines and electronic cigarettes were used during the show, so there might have been ‘a misunderstanding from someone sitting near her,’” The Washington Post reported.

Local media received surveillance video from inside the Buell Theater, which purports to suggest otherwise.

Police were called to the theater and remained until Boebert had left.
