Alex Jones, notorious conspiracy theorist and host of the “InfoWars” web show, was arrested Tuesday in Austin, Texas, for driving while intoxicated. His charge is a class B misdemeanor.

Police in Travis County were responding to an alleged dispute between Jones and his wife when they found him going 45 in a 40-mph zone, smelling strongly of alcohol.

Officers performed a sobriety test on Jones at 11:55 p.m. on Monday night, according to an arrest affidavit. His blood-alcohol level was found to be 0.079. While the legal limit in Texas is 0.08, officers are able to make arrests individuals are considered to be impaired. Jones was booked into the county jail at 12:37 a.m. and released on a $3,000 bond by 4:11 a.m.

“When I made contact with Jones I detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person,” one of the arresting officers wrote in a report.

The dispute reportedly began earlier on Monday after Jones and his wife had dinner at a sushi restaurant. Jones allegedly drank a large amount of sake while arguing with his wife. Later in the night, he left their residence in a black Dodge Charger to get away from the situation. The couple’s dispute is said to have become physical at one point.

After the arrest, Jones stressed that he was under the legal limit and accused the local police of attempting to meet arrest quotas.

“It was quite the experience to see what was going on in this country and to experience it myself,” Jones said on Tuesday’s episode of “InfoWars.”

Jones, 46, has gained notoriety over the years for spreading fringe right-wing conspiracy theories on his popular show. He recently found himself in major legal trouble for harassing the families of Sandy Hook shooting victims and repeatedly calling the event a hoax. In December, Jones was ordered to pay $100,000 in legal fees after losing a defamation case leveled by one parent who lost their son in the attack.
