The American professional mixed martial artist and pornographic actor, born Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, was arrested near Los Angeles in mid-August and extradited to Nevada after his former girlfriend, an adult film performer known as Christy Mack, accused him of savagely beating her and a man she was dating at the time. She declared that she suffered 18 broken facial bones, including her nose, a broken rib and a ruptured liver. At that time she escaped when was left alone in a bedroom.
The martial artist who can carry a maximum sentence of life in prison tries to minimize the accusations. “The cops will never give me fair play, never believe me. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it’s just heart breaking” was his situation described in the media in his own words prior to his arrest. Between 2009 and 2010, War Machine appeared in twelve adult films. He was previously sentenced many times in the last seven years for felony assaults against other people. Actually he was ordered to remain held without bond until his next court date, which was set for Oct. 17.
