Video Update — Alex Jones explains details of his wife’s arrest

 

During an initial 911 phone call with police, Jones told an emergency operator that his wife had struck him over the head multiple times and was “holding a club in her hand” and attempting to “hit him with it.”

 

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 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.”

 

 

 

“Jail records show the 43-year-old faces misdemeanor charges of assault causing bodily injury to a family member and resisting arrest, search or transport,” The Associated Press reported. The AP added that Erika Wulff Jones was taken into custody and booked her into an Austin jail around 8:45 p.m. Friday.

 

“It’s a private family matter that happened on Christmas Eve,” Jones said. “I love my wife and care about her, and it appears to be some kind of medication imbalance.”

 

She had not received a bond as of Saturday afternoon.
