Infowars founder Alex Jones’ wife was arrested on Christmas Eve on a domestic violence charge that the conspiracy theorist said stems from a “medication imbalance.”

Deputies took Erika Wulff Jones into custody and booked her into an Austin jail around 8:45 p.m. Friday, and 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. She had not received a bond Saturday afternoon.

Jones declined to elaborate as to what happened but believes it was related to his wife’s recent change of medication.

“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.”

Jones said his wife’s arrest “doesn’t concern my politics” and that “it wasn’t some kind of personal hateful thing or anything.”

Jones was recently ordered to pay Sandyhook shooting victims’ families millions for falsely claiming the massacre was staged.
