(Las Vegas, NV) — U.S. Marshals arrest “War Machine” Jonathan Koppenhaver.

A USMS spokesman says U.S. Marshals made the arrest in Simi Valley, California. Las Vegas Metro Police and other agencies have been searching for Koppenhaver in connection with the severe beating of his girlfriend Christy Mack.  Investigators say they developed information that Mack has fled Las Vegas and was in Califonia.

The MMA fighter is being held in the Simi Valley City jail pending his extradition back to Nevada.

Adult film actress Christy Mack says he knocked out her teeth, broke her bones and sheared off her hair in the Aug. 8 attack.

The welterweight fighter has had previous run-ins with the law and missed two years of his career while he spent time in jail.
