Erika Wulff Jones, the wife of InfoWars founder Alex Jones, was arrested and jailed on Christmas Eve over an alleged domestic violence incident, unrelated to the conspiracy-loving pundit’s controversial political views.
Mrs Jones was booked into a jail cell in Austin, Texas on Friday evening on charges of causing bodily damage to a family member and resisting arrest, according to the Associated Press. According to reports, she had not yet received bond as of Saturday afternoon.
Alex Jones confirmed that his wife’s arrest was the result of “a private family matter that happened on Christmas Eve.”
He shared no details of the incident and did not reveal who was attacked, but insisted that his wife’s arrest had nothing to do with his controversial political views and “wasn’t some kind of personal hateful thing or anything.”
‘I love my wife and care about her and it appears to be some kind of medication imbalance.’
The InfoWars founder filed a lawsuit against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the January 6 Congressional committee on Monday, accusing them of attempting to “satiate a political witch hunt” after he was subpoenaed to provide documents over his participation in a protest ahead of the Capitol riot in January.
