Alex Jones has had a terrible end to 2021. In November, a judge ruled him liable in the Sandy Hook defamation case. Jones was also subpoenaed to appear before the 1/6 House Investigation Committee. The conspiracy theorist also had a bit of a meltdown when Donald Trump urged people to get their COVID-19 booster shot.Christmas Eve was also a rough time for the noted conspiracy theorist. His wife, Erika Wulff Jones, was arrested for attacking him. She hit him over 20 times and burned his eyes with shampoo, according to reports.
According to the Daily Beast:
“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.”See Also
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.”
