RIFLE, Colo. (CBS4) - A restaurant in Rifle which opened against a cease and desist order had its license suspended. Shooters Grill opened on Wednesday despite the order given by the Rifle Police Department
The owner, Lauren Boebert, said she needed to open to avoid shutting their doors forever.
Friday evening, the Garfield County Health Department issued the suspension.
Boebert, a Republican running to unseat Republican Rep. Scott Tipton (CO-3), will have a virtual hearing about the suspension on Monday.
"If you want freedom, you have to go out and take it," Boebert previously stated on social media.
