Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, the founder of Infowars, caused a ruckus outside Tuesday's House Judiciary Committee's "anti-conservative bias" hearing and nearly got himself arrested.

Jones can be heard in a video repeatedly shouting "Google is evil" as he followed Google CEO Sundar Pichai down the halls of Congress before testimony began. The video was shared on Twitter by New York Times technology reporter Daisuke Wakabayashi.

"Sundar and Google are absolutely the most horrible corporation on earth," Jones continued.

He also accused the tech giant of working with the Chinese government to create a global social score.

"Google is helping build censorship systems in China for a global social score they tested there to totally control every aspect of our lives," Jones ranted.

Pichai didn't respond to Jones' rant while being escorted into the meeting room.

What did the police do?

A U.S. Capitol police officer warned Jones to stop shouting and threatened to arrest him if he didn't comply.

"I understand," Jones said. "He's just taking my free speech away and lying about me. I need to stand up to that."

Jones, who was banned from several social media platforms earlier this year, has accused Google of lying about him and hindering free speech.

What did Pichai say at the hearing?

Pichai read a prepared statement during opening remarks before the House Judiciary Committee, Newsweek reported.

"I lead this company without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way," Pichai said. "To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests. We are a company that provides platforms for diverse perspectives and opinions — and we have no shortage of them among our own employees."

What else?

The hearing was interrupted when someone opened the door holding a sign, according to Wakabayashi. The sign appeared to protest Google's decision to create a search engine for Chinese users that complied with the Chinese government's demands for censorship.
