Another Ex-Girlfriend of Anthony Johnson Accused Him of Battery in March, Police Report Reveals

As we previously reported, UFC light-heavyweight Anthony Johnson is currently on an indefinite suspension, following allegations that he brutally assaulted the mother of two of his children at her place of employment in 2012, then talked her out of pressing charges; the victim claims she has been receiving threatening calls and text messages since then. This followed a separate incident in 2009, in which Johnson roughed up a different woman and eventually pleaded nolo contendere to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.

Unfortunately, Johnson’s history of abuse doesn’t end there. According to a police report first unearthed by MMAJunkie, another ex-girlfriend of the UFC fighter claimed that Johnson assaulted her at her place of employment. Via Junkie:

On March 19, the woman called police to get Johnson to leave her place of employment, Park’s Taekwondo. According to the probable cause affidavit, she did not give a full account of the incident until the next day, when a teacher from the taekwondo school called police to document a text message he said he received from Johnson. The woman told police then that Johnson had showed up unannounced at Park’s Taekwondo on 15 separate occasions in the three months she had worked there, even though their sexual relationship ended in 2012.

The woman said Johnson knew she was working alone March 19. She said he demanded to speak with her, grabbed her shirt behind the neck, lifted her up from the chair by her shirt and grabbed her right arm. She showed the investigator “bruising on her right forearm and a reddish scratch mark near her right collarbone.” She told police she asked Johnson to leave several times, but he did not until police arrived.

Three Myths Busted by the War Machine/Christy Mack Police Report

To this point, everything we “know” about War Machine‘s alleged assault of Christy Mack comes from Mack’s gruesome public statement, along with conjecture from War Machine apologists who weren’t there. Yesterday, TapNapSnap uploaded the official police report — which was drafted and signed on August 9th — and it sheds a little more light on some of the questions that still remain from the incident. Here are three myths that have been officially busted, now that we know what was actually reported to police…

1) War Machine was “fighting for his life.” According to the fighter’s initial twitter recap of the incident, Jon Koppenhaver showed up to the home of Christy Mack (real name: Christine Mackinday) with an engagement ring, and found himself in a life-or-death struggle. The police report makes the incident sound pretty one-sided:

“At approximately 1:30-2 am [Mackinday] woke up to her dogs barking (2 pit bulls that were also sleeping in her bed) and Koppenhaver walking into her room (Koppenhaver was wearing camo Tom’s, dark grey cargo shots [sic], and a white shirt which read ‘Alpha Male Shit Clothing Company’) and turned on the light. Koppenhaver than attacked [Corey] Thomas while he was lying in the bed and Koppenhaver began punching Thomas in the face. Mackinday asked Koppenhaver to stop and Koppenhaver continued to punch Thomas. While Koppenhaver was beating Thomas, Mackinday dialed 911 from her cell phone, and hid the phone from Koppenhaver. Mackinday did not say anything to Koppenhaver, and she left the phone with an open line.

Mackinday explained Koppenhaver choked Thomas by placing Thomas in a ‘rear naked choke’…The fighting continued for approximately 10 minutes and Koppenhaver eventually released Thomas from the choke hold. Thomas was bleeding “profusely” from his face and Koppenhaver had Thomas’s blood on his shirt. Koppenhaver told Thomas to leave and told Thomas that he would kill him if he reported this and Koppenhaver went to jail. Koppenhaver said he would give his friends all of Thomas’s information and his friends would find Thomas and kill him if anything happened to Koppenhaver.”
