‘War Machine’ Arrested In Simi Valley, California, For Alleged Assault Of Christy Mack


It appears that the long, sad saga of former UFC and Bellator welterweight Jonathan Koppenhaver and his alleged beating of former girlfriend Christy Mack and a male friend has nearly come to an end, as United State Marshals, working in conjunction with California Police, have arrested “War Machine” in a Simi Valley, Calif. motel.

According to Nixle.com, “War Machine” was arrested without incident and booked on several warrants stemming from last week’s alleged assault of pornstar Mack:

“The United States Marshal’s Service requested assistance from the Simi Valley Police Department to effect the arrest of Jonathan “War Machine” Koppenhaver on 8/15/14 at approximately 1:45 P.M. The United States Marshal possessed an arrest warrant for Koppenhaver stemming from an incident in Las Vegas Nevada last week. Koppenhaver was a former resident of Simi Valley and the Marshals investigation indicated he was possibly staying in Simi Valley, CA. 

Further investigation revealed he was staying at the Extended Stay America Hotel located at 2498 Stearns Street in Simi Valley. Simi Valley Officers along side United States Marshals pinpointed his exact room and arrested him without incident. 

Inside the room was a small quantity of cash and some pizza. The United States Marshal’s Service turned Mr. Koppenhaver over to the Simi Valley Police Department for booking on his warrant from Nevada. He was transported to the Ventura County Jail.”

“War Machine” made the headlines for an early morning incident in Las Vegas last Friday that ended with Mack sustaining several broken bones, teeth, bruises, and other serious injuries after “War Machine” allegedly walked in on her with a male friend.

Reports stated that Mack’s male friend was also severely beaten before fleeing the scene. Seven warrants were signed for Koppenhaver’s arrest on a litany of charges.

Bellator MMA did not wait to find out the results of Koppenhaver’s day in court, promptly cutting the troubled fighter who has had served jail time for assault in more than one instance in the past.

Infamous man hunter Dog The Bounty Hunter was reportedly on “War Machine’s” trail earlier this week, but it looks like the Simi Valley Police have everything under control. With  “War Machine” in custody, all that’s left is to pick up the pieces of this sad and disappointing story.

      How many cops do you think it will take to throw War Machine down a flight of stairs? None. He fell.

    Was hoping the "alpha male" would commit suicide but not in the cards I guess, a few things disturbing I noticed that many are not talking about

    During his twitter rant he kept talking about how " heart broken" and hurt he was….basically showed no concern for Christy Mack and was worried about himself which I thought was very freaky and bizarre and narcissism. He never showed and remorse for his actions. Also, he made a comment that she was his property and of course I assumed he was joking but who knows. He'll get 15 plus years in prison for this. All that " Alpha Male" garbage and his constant hate for authority and government shows how dumb he is…He thinks he's the smartest guy in the room.

    Oh and his real brother, is a piece of trash too…But at least he's not a criminal like WM

      The guy did something that no man should do which is to abuse of our superior strength against a woman but genuinely wishing that someone commits suicide ain't right either. I would reserve judgement unless I was a witness or personally knew the guy, you're basically judging his person based on something as irrelevant as his tweets.
      That being said, WM no doubt deserves prison time for his rampage which clearly wash't in self defence.
      Also I'd bet 50bucks that Christy Mack's side of the story ain't 100% true…

    He's going to end up killing some one in jail, or spending all his days in solitary confinement and ending his days there by his own hand. No way a person like this is going to take the treatment he is going to get without snapping. But I could be wrong, beating up women is fairly normal in the USA, so many of the inmates can probably relate to him.

    Not gonna lie, a little disappointed Dog didn't actually get him but glad this guy is off the streets, I can only hope/assume a judge will hit him with absolutely everything they can.

      Dog will likely get a certificate of participation award for his efforts.

    This just shows dog is the WORST bounty hunter. He was supposedly so, "close" to WM and hanging out by Mexico border. I'm surprised dog can find his way home.
