Prosecutors drop drunk driving charges against conspiracy fabulist Alex Jones

Drunk driving charges were dropped against InfoWars founder Alex Jones, who had been arrested on March 10 after Texas police pulled him over for going five miles over the speed limit. Police say Jones smelled of alcohol and failed all three sobriety tests police gave him.

From The Austin Statesman:

He was arrested and taken to jail where he voluntarily performed a breathalyzer test. The blood alcohol test first came back at 0.076. A second test taken four minutes later, just before midnight, showed a blood alcohol concentration of 0.079, the closest reading possible to the legal limit without reaching it.

Area law enforcement agencies for years have charged people with drunken driving even when tests come back below the 0.08 blood alcohol content threshold that Texas uses to define intoxication.

Impairment, according to the law, is possible regardless of a person's blood alcohol level, meaning a jury could reasonably determine some drivers were intoxicated even if they didn't reach the 0.08 threshold.
