Lauren Boebert's family and their run-ins with misfortunate controversies

This isn't the first time Congresswoman Boebert's son has made it to the headlines in a negative light. He previously had his run-in with unfortunate events in April 2023, when one of his friends alleged that Tyler had been responsible for an accident that led to his multiple injuries.

Noble D'Amato (19) alleged that Tyler caused a car accident that left him with multiple concussions and a lacerated hand. Eventually, Lauren Boebert was also accused of covering up the crash wherein the 19-year-old (at the time) was also in possession of unprescribed drug paraphernalia. However, D'Amato claimed that the young Boebert was “stone cold sober” at the time he ‘flipped’ the car, accentuating the high-speed accident.

That is not all. The entire Boebert family has also been tied up in controversies over the past few months. In January 2024, Lauren Boebert's ex-husband, Jayson, was charged for allegedly assaulting Tyler during a domestic altercation. Meanwhile, the congresswoman herself was issued a temporary restraining order against Jayson.
