Notorious radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones did not have the most joyous of all Christmas celebrations this year, as his wife was taken into police custody in Austin, TX after reportedly giving the Infowars founder a rather savage Christmas Eve beating.
Erika Wulff Jones, 43, was arrested on Friday night at around 8:45pm and charged with misdemeanor charges of assault and resisting arrest after she allegedly struck Jones on the head “over 20 times,” according to Travis County police reports obtained by the Daily Beast.
“It’s a private family matter that happened on Christmas Eve,” Jones told The Associated Press. “I love my wife and care about her and it appears to be some kind of medication imbalance.”
Mr. Jones had called 911 and told a dispatcher that his wife had struck him over the head multiple times and was “holding a polished club in her hand” and attempting to “hit him with it.”
The Daily Beast also reported:
Jones later told police that “Erika had hit him with both closed fists and open hands on his head in front of their child,” the affidavit stated.
According to Jones, Erika had accused him of “cheating on her,” leading to a violent altercation as the duo bathed their child. (Jones has three other children from a previous marriage.)
Erika allegedly struck Jones “over 20 times,” including once over the head with a bottle, “possibly shampoo,” causing the contents to get on his face and “cause burning to his eyes,” the report continued. “[Jones] stated he tried to get away from her in the master bedroom, and she followed him with a stone ball trying to strike him.”
It was at this point, police wrote, that Jones was “in fear for his life.”
Police located a stone, weighing approximately five pounds, in the primary bedroom, “consistent” with the alleged weapon. Jones told police that she never hit him with the stone, but “threw it at his head, missing by inches.”
Erika Jones denied any threats and said there was no assault on her part, but police reported they smelled alcohol on her breath. They also wrote that “she stated Alexander was angry from trying to visit family prior.” As she was being taken into custody, according to the outlet and citing a second affidavit, she “was adamant about not going to jail and at one point broke free of handcuffs and began ‘swing[ing] her fists and kicking’ police officers called for backup, while ‘striking at least one.’”
Recently, Alex Jones was subpoenaed by the kangaroo court that is the January 6th Committee, but he has since filed suit in opposition of the order and says he has no intention of appearing before the House Select Committee.
“Jones has offered to submit documents and answer written questions with written responses,” the lawsuit says. “The Select Committee has refused to accept that offer and insists that he appear in person for a deposition in Washington, D.C. on January 10, 2022. Jones has notified the Select Committee that he intends to plead his right to remain silent under the Fifth Amendment.”
Jones said his wife’s arrest “doesn’t concern my politics” and that “it wasn’t some kind of personal hateful thing or anything.”
She was released Sunday morning on bond.
