According to the Simi Valley Police Department’s initial statement, War Machine was arrested “without incident” on Friday, for the alleged beating of his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack. But witnesses at the hotel claim that the apprehension involved a taser, a gun, and some hair-pulling. Here are a couple of choice quotes from a KTLA.com report published yesterday:
A hotel guest who witnessed the arrest told KTLA that officers used a Taser on Koppenhaver.
“And they were like banging on the door, trying to get it open, and they’re like, ‘Open the door, open the door,” Nicolle Blankenship said. “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”…
Hotel guest Mary Casamento said she called police to the hotel after seeing a “big dude” yelling at and pushing a petite woman who was trying to calm him down. He grabbed her by the hair, Casamento said.
