Boebert’s Son No-Show At Car Crash Court Date

Rep. Lauren Boebert's son Tyler was a no show at a court hearing this week regarding a 2022 car crash he was responsible for. Apparently, mom didn't know he didn't show up until contacted by the press.

Tyler Boebert, eldest son of far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), was scheduled to appear in court this week for a mandatory hearing regarding a September 2022 car crash that resulted in a friend being hospitalized and led to a charge of “careless driving causing bodily harm.”

But young Tyler had other plans.

Via Westword:

It would have been the last pit stop on Tyler’s months-long road of legal drama, with the hearing centering on an order to attend the state’s “Alive at 25” driver awareness program.

Prosecutors in Glenwood Springs had dropped his case down to a “defective vehicle for headlights” ticket in a plea deal.

But according to the Garfield County Clerk’s Office, Tyler didn’t show. To make matters worse, Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District representative was unaware that her son had missed his court date.

Here are the details of the car crash via Westword:

On September 17, 2022, Representative Lauren Boebert’s eldest son, Tyler, was issued a “careless driving causing bodily injury” ticket in connection with a late-night car crash in which he flipped his father’s SUV into a Garfield County creek bed.

Noble D’Amato, a nineteen-year-old friend of Tyler’s who was riding shotgun, wound up hospitalized with multiple concussions and a severely lacerated hand.

Last month, Boebert announced to a group of conservative moms that Tyler, at the age of 17, had knocked up his underage girlfriend and they were expected a child in April.

When Westword asked why Tyler was a no-show, a spokesperson for Boebert responded via email ignoring the question and instead deflecting to an attack on President Biden’s son, Hunter.

“If you want to write a hit piece on a politician’s son, go after Hunter Biden,” the spokesperson said.

Westword also noted that Miss Law and Order herself has a history of missing court dates.

A 2016 careless driving incident resulted in her being tossed in jail for approximately 100 minutes for failing to appear in court, according to the Denver Post.

In 2015, Boebert got hit with a disorderly conduct charge related to an incident at a music festival near Grand Junction, then missed her court date.
