It’s over. War Machine, after the brutal beating of longtime girlfriend Christy Mack, has been apprehended in California this afternoon. According to a police report from the Simi Valley Police Department War Machine has been apprehended and is in custody.
The United States Marshal’s Service requested assistance from the Simi Valley Police Department to effect the arrest of Jonathan “War Machine” Koppenahver 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.
That means that the great War Machine manhunt is over, now it’s time to see how the whole ordeal plays out in a court when he’s sent back to Las Vegas, where the brutal assault on Christy Mack took place last week. There’s no word on Dog the Bounty Hunter in this report, which might put an end to one of the most inadvertently hilarious stories of 2014. Until War Machine is sentenced we expect to hear more on the whole Christy Mack/War Machine ordeal in the coming months.
