Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has withdrawn her request for a permanent restraining order against her ex-husband Jayson Boebert.

Lauren Boebert had requested the permanent restraining order after the temporary protection order for domestic abuse was granted on Feb. 2, just a couple of weeks following Jayson Boebert's arrest in two separate incidents. On Monday, the judge dismissed the case regarding the permanent restraining order. 

The first incident with Jayson Boebert happened just before 8 p.m. on Jan. 6 at a restaurant in Silt, Colorado with his ex-wife. Jayson Boebert is facing three charges related to that incident; disorderly conduct, third-degree trespass and obstruction of a peace officer.  

The second incident happened about 1 a.m. on Jan. 9 at a residence outside Silt involving his 18-year-old son. In that incident, his son called authorities after Jayson Boebert allegedly assaulted him and grabbed a rifle. He is facing charges of prohibited use of weapons, harassment and assault in the third degree for that incident. 

The couple's divorce was final in October of last year.

Tyler Boebert, the 18-year-old son of Lauren Boebert and Jayson Boebert was arrested last month in Colorado related to a string of alleged property thefts and vehicle trespasses. The police department in Rifle, Colorado, posted on Facebook that Tyler Boebert was arrested at approximately 2:30 p.m. last Tuesday and he faces five felony counts. The charges include four felony counts of criminal possession of identification documents and one felony count of conspiracy to commit a felony.

In court on Monday, it was revealed that Tyler Boebert had filed a protection order against his father, Jayson Boebert. The judge read the requirements of the protection order which include no threats or harassment, relinquishing weapons or firearms, and no consumption of alcohol. There is no restraint against contact. Jayson Boebert agreed to the terms and the judge granted the protection order. His defense attorney pointed out in court that Tyler Boebert is currently living with Jayson Boebert.
