Tyler Boebert is in the news once again. He’s the 18-year-old son of Lauren Boebert and soon to be a father, with his 15-year-old girlfriend. The congresswoman is of course spinning this as a wonderful thing, that her minor son impregnated another minor and now the two children are going to have a child of their own — although technically Tyler is an adult, having turned 18 on March 21.
Naturally, as with all things Boebert, it’s the tip of the iceberg. One of Tyler’s friends, 19-year-old Noble D’Amato, told Westword how he was egregiously injured when an SUV that Tyler was driving “so f**king fast” flipped over and landed in a creek bed. D’Amato then goes on to describe how Lauren Boebert covered it all up.
Noble D’Amato, a nineteen-year-old friend of Tyler’s who was riding shotgun, wound up hospitalized with multiple concussions and a severely lacerated hand.
“I still have problems with my hand,” D’Amato says. “My thumb almost got cut off. It prevented me from getting a welding job, because I can’t hold a TIG torch anymore. I’m a personal-care provider now.”
The crash, which went down around 11:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, also led to D’Amato being charged with unlawful possession of a schedule IV controlled substance after he was found carrying unprescribed Xanax pills, according to the Colorado State Police. A “silver marijuana grinder w/small amount of marijuana” was also reported to have been found in D’Amato’s backpack at the scene, earning him a drug paraphernalia charge.
Tyler must have been in a hurry to get them to a church service or something wholesome, wouldn’t you think?
Tyler, meanwhile, got a careless driving ticket and a summons to appear in court — with local prosecutors in Glenwood Springs later dropping his case down to a “defective vehicle for headlights” ticket following the acceptance of a plea deal, according to the Garfield County Court Clerk’s Office.
Tyler’s slap on the wrist included court-ordered driving school through Colorado’s “Alive at 25” driver’s awareness program and a mandatory review hearing scheduled for today, April 10, to make sure the soon-to-be father completed the course, the clerk’s office says.
You don’t need to be a psychologist or a sociologist to conclude that Tyler is not being benefitted by Mommy getting him off easy. Very bad life patterns are being set, as we speak. Normal people learn about accountability and the consequences — intended or not — of their actions and how to behave accordingly. Tyler is apparently running wild and somebody else cleans up his messes.
“The injury reported was superficial at best and was addressed by medical professionals out of caution,” Boebert’s office said in an April 4 statement supplied to Westword. The statement also said that “the incident involved two minors,” which isn’t correct: Although Tyler, who turned eighteen on March 21, was seventeen at the time of the accident, D’Amato was nineteen.
D’Amato calls the Boebert statement “bull$hit,” and suggests that Tyler’s mother — who has a laundry list of charges on her own record, including careless driving and operating an unsafe vehicle for rolling her truck into a ditch in 2016 — was likely the one pushing to sweep everything under the rug.
“She’s never liked me,” D’Amato says. “But that doesn’t give them the right to try and hide the fact that I was injured. They just don’t give a f**k. It’s the entire family.”
D’Amato, who says he has no plans to take legal action against the Boeberts, points to a 2020 incident that saw Lauren Boebert accused of covering up an off-road accident in Moab “that nearly killed her sister-in-law” and also involved Tyler, according to the watchdog groups American Muckrakers PAC and fireboebert.com.
Nothing like having law breakers elected to be law makers. Please, let’s find a way to get Adam Frisch elected to the seat currently held by Boebert. Boebert has no interest in legislating and no ability for same. She wants to be on TV and be a MAGA troll. Colorado deserves better.
