Court records show that Jayson Boebert was arrested Tuesday for charges including misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief. 

Garfield County Jail records confirm he was arrested and then released. The total bond was set at $2,500. 

In previous reporting, Jayson Boebert was the one who called police following the restaurant incident and claimed he was a victim of domestic violence during the altercation. 

The couple divorced last year. 

Boebert narrowly won reelection in Colorado’s 3rd district in 2022 by around 500 votes. In recent weeks, she announced that she plans to run in 2024 in a neighboring district more friendly to conservatives. In her statement to CBS on Sunday, Boebert said the alleged incident over the weekend is “another reason I’m moving.”
