Pro-gun Republican lawmaker Lauren Boebert allegedly set off a metal detector and refused to comply with U.S. Capitol Police Thursday, a report said.

Three minutes later, journalist Hugo Lovell tweeted: "House Republican Lauren Boebert now sets off the metal detector and refuses to comply with US Capitol Police, waking into the chamber [sic].

"USCP not making a big deal but $5,000 fine comes out of member's pay.".

A first offense will result in $5,000 deducted from a lawmaker's Congressional pay, while a second offense comes with a $10,000 fine.

In a separate incident on January 13, Boebert allegedly refused to have her bag searched when passing through metal detectors placed at the entrance to the House floor.

After Pelosi's metal detector measure was announced, Boebert tweeted that lawmakers "were not in need of more metal detectors when we were locked in the Chambers" during the Capitol riots.
