Laura Voepel, 45 — the mother of Anderson Lee Aldrich, the mass shooter who attacked the club — was reportedly arrested for disorderly conduct on the same day, according to court records.
On 20 November, police were called out to Ms Voepel’s neighborhood to respond to noise complaints, according to KDVR. According to the report, the responding officers warned Ms Voepel “multiple times” to “stop yelling” or she would be arrested for disorderly conduct.
The court records obtained by KDVR states that she "continued to make unreasonable noise directly next to multiple apartments."
A police officer also said Ms Voepel became combative and tried to resist arrest.
The incident occurred around 3:30am on 20 November. It’s currently unclear why she was yelling.
Ms Voepel had previous warrants for her arrest in California, but was not booked for her alleged offense on the day of the shooting. Her court date is set for 25 January.
The revelation that Ms Voepel was taken into custody just hours after the attack is the latest insight into the mass shooter’s family life.
In the days after the attack, CBS8 released a bizarre, rambling interview with the shooter’s father, Aaron Brink.
During the interview, Mr Brink — a former MMA fighter and porn actor — told the station he was relieved his child — who had just killed five people — wasn’t gay.
“They started telling me about the incident, a shooting involving multiple people,” Mr Brink said in an interview. “And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar. I said, ‘God, is he gay?’ I got scared, ‘S***, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, ‘Phhhewww…’”
Mr Brink went on to say that in his family “we don’t do gay.”
He did express some remorse for what his child allegedy did to the families of the victims.
“I’m so sorry guys for your loss,” Mr Brink said. “With no regard to politics, it’s human life. I’m so sorry. My soul goes out to you.”
