The search for War Machine is over.
Formerly known as Jonathan Koppenhaver (before having his name legally changed to War Machine), the former fighter was wanted by Las Vegas police for his alleged involvement in connection with an assault on his former girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack. He used social media to deny that he was involved and even said that he was attempt to propose to her.
A press release from the Simi Valley Police Department today announced the fighter’s arrest at an Extended Stay America hotel in Simi Valley, Calif. War Machine was arrested by the Simi Valley police and the U.S. Marshal’s service, which pinpointed Koppenhaver’s location. He was found with “a small quantity of cash and some pizza.”
After being taken into custody, U.S. Marshal’s officials turned War Machine over to Simi Valley police for booking on his Las Vegas warrant. He was then moved to the Ventura County Jail, the release said.
