According to police reports obtained by The Daily Beast, the wife of career conspiracy theorist and Infowars founder Alex Jones struck him “over 20 times” and threatened to hit him on the head with a stone ball, causing him to “fear for his life” in a domestic violence incident that took place this Christmas Eve.
Erika Wulff Jones was arrested on Friday and charged with domestic violence that allegedly took place at the couple’s home near Austin, Texas. In a statement to the Associated Press, Jones said he loves his wife and that the incident was probably the result of “some kind of medication imbalance.”
In a call to 9-11 on Friday, Jones said 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.”
Jones later told police that “Erika had hit him with both closed fists and open hands on his head in front of their child.” Jones added Ericka accused him of cheating during an argument as they were bathing their child.
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.”
Erika disputed Alex’s claims, telling police that no “threats” were made and that no “assault” occurred at the scene. “I spoke with Erika,” a responding officer wrote, observing that she had “a strong odor of alcohol” on her breath. “She stated Alexander was angry from trying to visit family prior.”
She was arrested and charged with the alleged assault of her husband and for resisting arrest, both misdemeanors.
