Laura Voepel: Mom of accused nightclub gunman Anderson Aldrich arrested after shooting

Just hours after her son allegedly opened fire on a local LGBTQ+ nightclub, the mother of accused Colorado Springs mass shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Laura Voepel, 45, was allegedly warned “multiple times” at her home to “stop yelling” or face arrest for disorderly conduct, according to a summons obtained by KDVR.

Laura Voepel, the mother of accused Colorado Springs mass shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich, was arrested in an incident hours after the massacre.

However, she “continued to make unreasonable noise directly next to multiple apartments,” according to the document, which lists her Union Boulevard address in Colorado Springs.

When she was arrested around 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 20, Voepel became combative and physically resisted, according to a police officer.

She was charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and disorderly conduct, an “unclassified petty offense.”

It is unclear what she was apparently yelling about.

One of Voepel’s neighbors told CBS News that they’d previously heard shouting coming from the woman’s apartment or nearby.
