LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15 (UPI) -- MMA fighter War Machine was arrested Friday after being on the run from allegations he beat his former girlfriend, adult film star Christy Mack.

Mack accused War Machine, whose birth name is Jon Koppenhaver, of beating her to the point of hospitalization last week.

She ended up with 18 broken bones, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib and ruptured liver. Koppenhaver also allegedly sawed off much of her hair with a dull knife.

U.S. Marshals and Simi Valley police arrested Koppenhaver without incident at a hotel room near Los Angeles. He was in the room with a small amount of cash, TMZ reported.

He was booked into Ventura County jail with no bail information posted. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.

Mack said Koppenhaver showed up at her house and beat her and her boyfriend, who was in the house with her. Koppenhaver took to Twitter after the incident to defend his actions.




As of Friday night, Mack hadn't addressed Koppenhaver's arrest on Twitter. She had previously posted images of her injuries. Warning, graphic photos below.
