Fugitive MMA Fighter Arrested by U.S. Marshals After Manhunt

After a weeklong manhunt spurred by an accusation of severe abuse, mixed martial arts fighter Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver was arrested yesterday in Simi Valley, California.

According to KTLA, Koppenhaver was arrested on Friday afternoon at a Simi Valley motel, nearly a week after his ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack, accused him of brutally attacking her in her Las Vegas home. KTLA reports that a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service states Koppenhaver was "arrested without incident."

Nicolle Blankenship, a guest at the hotel who reportedly witnessed the arrest, spoke to KTLA about what she saw:

"And they were like banging on the door, trying to get it open, and they're like, 'Open the door, open the door. Finally when they got it open they yelled, 'Gun,' and then all of a sudden you see them shoot him with a Taser. And he got shot with a Taser and he went down to the floor, and then they handcuffed him."

Another hotel guest, Mary Casamento, told KTLA that she called police after "seeing a 'big dude' yelling at and pushing a petite woman who was trying to calm him down." She reports also seeing him grab the woman by the hair.

The Huffington Post reports that Koppenhaver was taken to the Ventura County Jail, but will eventually be transported to Las Vegas.
