MMA Junkie reports that more details have been revealed about Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver's arrest on Friday and his assault of porn star Christy Mack and former reality TV contestant Corey Thomas. The details come from a report unsealed by the Clark County Nevada District Attorney's Office.
Mack had two missing teeth, a "blowout" orbital fracture, a lacerated liver, swelling and bruises. Thomas suffered a broken orbital bone and facial contusions. The events happened on August 9 at Mack's home in Las Vegas. It resulted in several charges against war Machine and a manhunt that ended last week. Mack released a statement and photos that backed up several details of the assault.
War Machine found the two asleep in the same bed and that's when the attack started. He jumped on Thomas and began to punch and almost choke him unconscious with a rear naked choke. Mack asked him to stop and tried to call 911 with her cell phone. War Machine told Thomas to leave and threatened to have his friends kill him if he told anyone. After that, he went through Mack's text messages and kept punching her in the face. He also threatened her and cut off her hair with a dull knife. She ran away when he started to look for another knife to "finish the job". She once again called 911 at a neighbor's house. Operators hung up on her and police took twenty minutes to reply.
War Machine waived extradition yesterday in court and will be taken to Las Vegas. He was arrested as a fugitive at a hotel in Simi Valley, California. Police found him in his room with cash and pizza and had to use a taser to arrest him. He is being charged with battery with substantial bodily harm, battery by strangulation, open and gross lewdness, assault with a deadly weapon and coercion, all felonies.
