'Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert allegedly punched her ex-husband twice Saturday night in a Colorado restaurant before she called the police, according to the Denver Post.

The congresswoman allegedly struck Jayson Boebert, her ex-husband, twice at the Miner’s Claim in Slit, according to the outlet.

An investigation by the Slit Police Department is ongoing, Chief Mike Kite confirmed, according to the outlet. Police reportedly arrived at the scene after the incident, after which neither party was arrested.

“This is a sad situation for all that keeps escalating and another reason I’m moving,” Boebert said in a statement from her campaign manager to the outlet. “I didn’t punch Jason in the face and no one was arrested.”

The Colorado Republican’s ex-husband told police Sunday he and Lauren Boebert were having heated talks, the outlet reported. He reportedly does not plan to press charges.

“I don’t want nothing to happen,” Jayson Boebert told the outlet in a brief phone interview. “Her and I were working through a difficult conversation.”

Jayson Boebert blamed himself for the Colorado couple’s “devastating divorce” in September, claiming it is “far from the truth” that Lauren Boebert left him “over fame and a new lifestyle.”'
