After beating up his ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack, Kopphehaver had been on the run for almost a week. Police caught up with him at the Extended Stay America Hotel in Simi Valley, California. However, it was anything but a peaceful surrender.

Nicolle Blankenship was another guest at the hotel. She told KTLA that officers “… were like banging on the door, trying to get it open, and they’re like, ‘Open the door, open the door’.

“Finally when they got it open they yelled, ‘Gun!’ and then all of a sudden you see them shoot him with a Taseer. And he got shot with a Taser and he went down to the floor, and then they handcuffed him.”

More information has emerged about the actual attacks, with the Las Vegas police releasing these details:

  • Koppenhaver and Mack had been dating for about 15 months when he walked in on Mack in bed with another man, Corey Thomas. Thomas claims he had also been dating Mack for two to three months.
  • Upon finding them together Koppnehaver slapped Mack and beat up Thomas.
  • While Koppenhaver was assaulting Thomas, Mack dialed 911.
  • Koppenhaver was strangling Thomas with a ‘rear naked choke’ hold. He released Thomas on the condition Thomas not report him, threatening to kill him if he ever did.
  • When he agreed Thomas was allowed to leave the house. Whereupon Koppenhaver began assaulting Mack.
  • He forced her to undress and take a shower, yelling at her as she did so.
  • Mack says her next recollection is being naked and curled on the bathroom floor while Koppenhaver hit and kicked her in the face and legs.
  • Mack claims that Koppenhaver then went through her Instagram and Twitter accounts pummelling her every time he found something he disapproved of.
  • Mack also claims Koppenhaver held a knife to her head and threatened to rape her, but could not get aroused.
