Arrest Warrants Issued for Boebert in Multiple Cases After She Didn’t Show Up for Court Hearings

At about midnight four years ago, restauranteur Lauren Boebert, in her words, “turned too sharp,” and rolled her truck into a ditch near her home in Rifle, Colorado.

She faced a careless driving and unsafe vehicle charges, and a court date was set for three months later.

Not an uncommon slip-up on rural roads at night.

But Boebert, who’s now a Republican candidate for Congress, never showed up for her court hearing on October 5, 2016, according to records obtained by the Colorado Times Recorder from Colorado’s 9th Judicial District.

This led a Garfield County judge to issue a warrant for Boebert’s arrest for failing to appear in court.

Information about the 2016 warrant comes after Colorado Newsline reported last week that Boebert failed to appear for two separate hearings following her 2015 disorderly-conduct arrest at the Country Jam music festival near Grand Junction. A document search shows that the Mesa County court issued a warrant for her arrest in this case as well after she didn’t show up.

In the 2016 case involving the car accident, a letter was sent by the court to Boebert’s home address in Rifle and advised Boebert that a “warrant for your arrest” was issued for “failure to appear on 10/5/16,” in reference to the case.

“You may take care of this matter by contacting the court…and request a new court date,” the letter, dated Oct. 7, 2016, states. “If you wish to plead guilty, it may be possible for you to do so by mail. In addition to the warrant, a warrant fee has been assessed and a hold may have been placed against your driver’s license. Please contact the court as soon as possible to resolve this matter.”

After apparently ignoring the court’s letter, Boebert was arrested four months later, fingerprinted, photographed, and fined $100. The following month, she appeared in court, as ordered, and the matter was settled in a plea bargain, dropping the careless driving charge.

When arrested in 2015 for disorderly conduct, Boebert warned deputies at the time that she had “friends at Fox News.”

One deputy wrote that Boebert was “trying to get subjects to leave the custody of law enforcement,” according to Newsline. Some were detained for underage drinking.

At her restaurant, Shooters Grill, Boebert once let at least one juvenile server carry a weapon illegally.

Newsline pointed out that Boebert recently criticized protesters for not respecting the law. “Civil order, rule of law, respect, and decency need to be restored!!!” Boebert tweeted June 23, as quoted by Newsline.

Without citing any evidence, Boebert also claimed Black Lives Matter protesters in Rifle were “paid and bussed in.”

Boebert’s campaign did not return a call seeking to know why the candidate didn’t show up for court hearings after being arrested in 2015 or after the car crash in 2016.

But the Rifle Republican wrote an explanation of her 2016 car crash on the police report at the time.

“My lights were pointed up at the peak of the hill and I could not properly judge the right switch back turn,” she wrote on the report. “I almost came to a complete stop estimating where to turn but thought I was clear and on the road correctly. I had actually turned too sharp and too soon resulting in my truck rolling in the ditch.”

After upsetting GOP incumbent Scott Tipton in a June primary election, Boebert now must defeat Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush in November to represent the rural congressional district that stretches across western and southern Colorado.

    LOCK HER UP!  LOCK HER UP!  LOCK HER UP!

    I bet she has a longer rap sheet than 99% of all people identified as Antifa or BLM.

  3. Blackie says:

    Wonder if she will have her gun on her hip while attending court — if she ever shows up.

  4. Genghis says:

    Christ. I feel bad for people living in CD-3. This Boebert clown is an absolute train wreck of a human being. Everything I read suggests Bush would make a fine rep, but other than multiple daily mass fundraising emails she's been invisible (the functional equivalent of a unicorn, as our ol' buddy Darryl Glenn might say).

    The Posr says Bush and boebert are tied. 

  6. Early Worm says:

    I personally do not think someone should be disqualified for minor offenses – disorderly conduct, traffic tickets. But by repeatedly failing to show up for court, she is demonstrating that either she has no respect for the law or, more likely, she simply does not function well in society. Deadlines, appointments, obligations, etc., are just too much for her. Not really someone that you would want representing you in Congress.

      On the other hand, early worm, she seems to have a lot of guns.  Be careful of what you say about her.

      No respect for the law – bingo Early Worm

      1) Encouraging minors arrested for underage drinking to flee the scene and being arrested for disorderly conduct. Threatening police officers in the process that you know some goons at Fox.

      2) Not showing up for court multiple times and receiving arrest warrants, as you mentioned.

      3) Unlawfully providing a handgun to a minor.

      4) Violating state and county health orders directing your establishment not to serve customers in response to Covid-19.

      " Law for thee, but not for me " Now who does that remind me of, and how is that working out…
