If you’re not familiar with Alex Jones, he’s one of those mad conspiracy theorists that at one time (back in 2011) had a larger listening audience than Rush Limbaugh. Which is terrifying. He claims Sandy Hook was staged, he says the government is out to get you and he sells fear for a living.
During his 2015 divorce his wife said that he doesn’t actually believe any of the things he says and that it’s all an act to take advantage of people. I believe her.
Well now that asshole has a new thing to claim is all a farse and that’s the DUI he got popped for on Monday.
The Infowars founder was booked into an Austin jail shortly after midnight and released on bond a few hours later, said a spokeswoman from the Travis county sheriff’s office. Jones, 46, had a “strong odor of alcohol” coming from him and his blood-alcohol level was recorded at 0.076% and 0.079%, according to court records.
In Texas, the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.08%. Jones was also allegedly unable to complete sobriety tests.
In an arrest affidavit, the sheriff’s deputy said he was originally responding to a family disturbance call at Jones’s home just after 10pm on Monday. “Dispatch advised the disturbance now was only verbal but earlier in the day ‘it was physical’,” the affidavit said.
