Lauren Boebert: Republican lawmaker kicked out of Beetlejuice show for disturbance
Republican lawmaker Lauren Boebert was escorted out of a theatre in Denver during a performance of the musical Beetlejuice, after being accused of disruptive behaviour.
An incident report, which does not name her, says two patrons were asked to leave after complaints of vaping, singing, and causing disturbance.
Her team confirmed the incident but denied that she was vaping.
"I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!," Ms Boebert said on Twitter.
The incident report filed by Denver Arts & Venues in Colorado said the disruptive behaviour at Buell Theatre during Sunday night's show prompted three complaints from fellow audience members.
After an initial warning at intermission, an usher approached them again five minutes into the second half requesting they leave after additional complaints of being loud and recording the show. Taking pictures and recording at the show are not permitted.
In the report, one usher claims Ms Boebert and her companion "told me they would not leave".
"I told them I would (be) going to get Denver Police. They said 'go get them'."
Once in the lobby area, ushers claimed the congresswoman resisted leaving, saying "I will be contacting the mayor" and "Do you know who I am?"
(Sources say that the theater manager responded saying, "Yes I do. You're Sarah Palin with a lot less class.")
