Saw this coming from a mile away.

After news broke this week that Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s 18-year-old son Tyler Boebert, the father of her grandson, was arrested in Garfield County on a staggering 22 charges — all of which are seemingly in connection to a recent string of trespassing and thefts in the area — both of the teen’s now divorced and estranged parents have released their own separate, yet equally unhinged public responses to their son’s alleged crime spree.

Tyler’s arrest was confirmed in a public Facebook post by the Rifle Police Department and the Boebert teen now faces 22 charges, including 4 counts of criminal possession of a financial device, 3 counts of first-degree criminal auto trespass with intent to commit crime, 4 counts of criminal possession of ID docs, 4 counts of ID theft possession with intent to use, 3 counts of contributing to delinquency of a minor, 3 counts of theft- less than $300, and 1 felony count of conspiracy to commit.

Colorado’s local Westword publication has now released the respective public statements of both Lauren and Jayson Boebert on the matter of their son’s crimes.

Lauren seemingly took a tough love approach to the whole ordeal, stating that her son “should be held accountable for poor decisions just like any other citizen.”

I love my son Tyler, who has been through some very difficult, public challenges for a young man and the subject of attention that he didn’t ask for. It breaks my heart to see my child struggling and in this situation, especially when he has been provided multiple opportunities to get his life on track. I will never give up on him and I will continue to be there for him. As an adult and father, Tyler will take responsibility for his actions and should be held accountable for poor decisions just like any other citizen.”

Jayson, on the other hand, was just as whiney and self-important as ever:

Being a father in today’s challenging world can be a heavy task. With the constant bombardment of information and influences from all angles, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about the best way to guide your children. The challenges we have experienced, especially in the last few years, with schools being shut down, social shut downs, and the depression that was set in from a mismanaged COVID SHUT DOWN. Despite our best efforts, we will fall short sometimes. As a parent balancing work, family, and personal life while striving to be a good role model for your kids can be incredibly demanding. Moreover, the spotlight of today’s media can magnify and distort even the smallest aspects of your life. It’s disheartening to see your actions or words misrepresented and sensationalized, painting a false picture for the public. These distortions do not only create tension within your family, but also affect your reputation and relationships outside of the home. As a father navigating this complex landscape, it is crucial to stay true to your values, communicate openly with your loved ones, and remember that perfection is unattainable. Striving for honest and genuine connections with your children and keeping them on the right path, despite the challenges and external pressures, is what truly matters in the end.”
