Assault with a deadly weapon according to TMZ.

Several San Diego police swarmed in on former UFC bad boy War Machine last night and threw a spit bag on his head after cops say the dude assaulted someone with a deadly weapon.

TMZ has learned Machine -- which is the fighter's legal name -- was arrested outside a bar called Thruster's Lounge around 11 pm.

Law enforcement sources tell us Machine and another male were fighting with bouncers -- and when cops tried to approach the situation, War Machine took off running.

Eventually, cops caught up with the 28-year-old, threw him in handcuffs, and for some reason, put a spit bag over his head ... which is generally applied when the perp gets a little too aggressive with his oral fluids.

Machine was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon -- though it's unclear what the weapon is. He's currently being held in a SD jail.



I'd just like to know what the deadly weapon was.

How is it that this dude still gets media coverage? I thought his ass was going to prison a long time ago anyways. Can we just never have to see this guy and his reckless escapades again please?

Well, Cage Potato has picked it up with more of the story:

What makes this recent arrest even more disappointing/sadly predictable, is that War Machine just finished telling MiddleEasy.com that he had decided to stop being “a wild man” and get his act together. And when we say ‘just finished,’ we mean two days ago:

“I have a fiancé now, me and my partner are going to open up a gym. I have all these things that are lining up and being a wild man is not good for anything. I've done enough stuff, I've done everything there is to do. It's time for me to [expletive] play by the rules. I think if I don't straighten up, I'm just going to end up in jail. It's doing me no good to keep bucking the system because I can't change things. It sounds like I'm a quitter but I'm just being smart. I have to open this gym, get married, calm down and start training.”

That was on Monday. Then on Tuesday night the guy goes out and (allegedly) assaults someone with a deadly weapon. Kind of makes you think that either he was just trying to lull the world into a false sense of security before his next violent outburst, or else this is a person who does not have the impulse control that is necessary to live in a civil society.

Wonder what this means for that fight he has scheduled in April.


Man, forgot about that fight. I keep saying it, I'll say it again: War Machine vs. Junie Browning! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

I'm guessing he thought he was going to a Nets game. Wearing a bag gets you free swag and maybe even lunch with the CEO.

I seriously wish this dude would just get locked up forever. Dont even mention former UFC fighter when your talkin about him. He was horrible on TUF, just cryin like a baby the whole time. then he gets his ass beat by jared rollins until jared gassed and gave up. and then he got put to sleep in less than a minute by Yoshida. Call him porn star War Machine, Not former UFC fighter. I cant explain the hatred i have for this guy

This thread title is misleading. It lead me to believe there was a point in time that he found "it".

To spare my making another thread...War Machine Is Soon Going To Lose It. Once Again. These from his Twitter:

So Im kinda stranded in Birmingham...lol Dont know if I should try and find a room here or take a train to London and find one there...

Starving and room service is closed! I can't find a 24 hr pizza place...WTF



And from how I found out...via CP as usual...

The artist formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver was inexplicably allowed to leave the country this weekend and on Saturday celebrated by defeating Zach Light via first-round rear naked choke at BAMMA 3 in Birmingham, England. Now it seems like he's having some trouble getting back, according to his Twitter. (Editor's Note: You go ahead and keep him, England. Seriously.)

Fellow UFC washout (and the first fighter to snatch away the veil to reveal Kimbo Slice's canliness) Seth Petruzelli also got a win, locking on an arm bar just a minute, seven seconds into his fight against Ryan White. Petruzelli billed himself as "The Kimbo Conqueror" for this engagement, apparently hoping ships bearing news that Slice is now officially washed up had not yet arrived from The New World.

Matt Horwich was not as lucky as his fellow "TUF" alums, dropping a unanimous decision to Tom Watson in the evening's main event. Horwich was a late replacement for some other dude, who was judged unfit to fight by BAMMA doctors.

It was War Machine's first bout since his arrest for assault in San Diego back in March. Shortly thereafter, he allegedly tried to sell some internal organs to pay his legal fees and was reportedly shocked to discover that was illegal. With the win, it's nice to see such a nice young man get back on track. Expect a meltdown in three … two … one …


Zero...

I'd just like to know what the deadly weapon was.




If he spat on a cop, that is assault. As far as deadly weapon, the only thing that I can think of is if he has a disease or something and his saliva is deadly.

It could also just be assault and is mis-reported.
