The Palins of the Rockies are at it again. Republican Colorado Congresswoman and woman who really has to reevaluate her parenting skills Lauren Boebert recently acknowledged her 18-year-old expectant father-son Tyler was responsible for a car accident last September that injured a friend, nearly costing the passenger his thumb.
According to Denver independent news source Westword, Tyler Boebert was driving his father’s SUV when he flipped it into a creekbed around 11:30 p.m. on September 20, 2022. A passenger in the vehicle, Tyler’s 19-year-old friend Noble D’Amato, was injured with multiple concussions and a hand injury so severe he almost lost his thumb. D’Amato was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia (a cannabis grinder) and a count of unlawful possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, namely unprescribed Xanax. Tyler Boebert was originally cited for careless driving and was issued a court appearance date; he pleaded down to operating a defective vehicle with a headlight problem, essentially a traffic ticket. He was ordered to complete a driver safety course and is scheduled to appear before a judge Monday (today).
The congresswoman’s office claimed the incident was no big deal. “The injury reported was superficial at best and was addressed by medical professionals out of caution,” Boebert’s spokesperson told Westword, asserting that the incident was between “two minors.” In fact, while Tyler recently celebrated his 18th birthday–and will celebrate the birth of his first child later this month with the minor girl he impregnated out of wedlock, making his family-values mother a grandmother at age 36, just like she did to her mom–D’Amato was 19 at the time of the accident.
D’Amato’s account of his injuries refute the Boeberts downplaying: “I still have problems with my hand. 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 Boebert family is proving to be a significant hazard in their Rifle community. Lauren Boebert herself covered up a pre-election off-roading accident that nearly killed her sister-in-law, who had to be airlifted to a hospital for treatment. Boebert herself was thrown from the vehicle and reportedly fled the scene before authorities arrived, leaving her injured sister-in-law, her son and their dog at the scene. Neighbors accused the Boebert family of terrorizing and threatening them, recklessly driving down their residential street despite the calls for safety from residents including an incident caught on audio last August.
