Conspiracy theorist and media host Alex Jones is under investigation by Washington, D.C., police over an allegation he threatened to shove a pro-Trump organizer off of a stage at a December event.
Kylie Jane Kremer, executive director of the organization Women for America First, filed the allegation to the police department, according to a police filing obtained by The Hill. The complaint said that someone on Dec. 11 "threatened to shove her off the stage at her event" scheduled for the next day.
The complaint did not specifically name Jones, but sources told CNN that Jones made the threat.
The interaction allegedly took place outside the Willard Intercontinental hotel near the White House.

D.C. police confirmed to The Hill that they are investigating claims of “threats to do bodily harm.” Neither Women for America First nor Infowars, the show Jones hosts, responded to requests for comment from The Hill.
The D.C. police said they could not provide further details on the case given that their investigation is ongoing.
An attorney for Jones denied to CNN that his client threatened Kremer.
On the day of the Dec. 12 event, Kremer rallied supporters over the unfounded belief that the November presidential election was rigged against Trump.
Jones appeared on a separate stage on the National Mall.
Jones is known to espouse conspiracy theories and angry rants against a range of groundless ideas, including that school shootings are hoaxes and a deep state sought to undermine Trump’s administration.
