War Machine Arrested for Assault

MMA title contender Jon Koppenhaver, aka War Machine has been apprehended in in Simi Valley California, over the savage beating of his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack. Koppenhaver was eating pizza in a small hotel room when police swooped. He had been on the run from authorities for almost a week.

The courts issued a warrant for Koppenhaver’s arrest on Monday after his ex-girlfriend posted pictures of her bruised and broken face on Twitter. In a statement to the public Mack told how Koppenhaver arrived at her home unannounced. He assaulted her and a friend, smashing out several of Mack’s teeth and breaking bones in her face. He then cut her hair and threatened her with a blunt knife.

“My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken,” she said.

“After some time, the knife broke off of the handle and (he) continued to threaten me with the blade. I believed I was going to die. He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and cancelled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts.

“I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighbouring house.

“Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighbourhood knocking on doors. Finally one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.”

While in the run Koppenhaver tweeted, “@ChristyMack, I love you and hope you’re okay. I came him (sic) early to surprise you and help you set up for your convention. I can’t believe what I found and can’t believe what happened.

“I’m so heart broken … in all ways. I will always love you.”

The couple, who reputedly met through work in the adult film industry, reportedly broke up in May. Domestic violence had been an ongoing issue.
