(War Machine is the guy under the ‘spit bag.’ Not a place you ever really want to be unless you’re a weirdo performance artist.)
There comes a time when you have to look at the choices a guy makes and shake your head slowly while saying: God. Dammit. For the former UFC fighter and porn actor known as War Machine, that time is now. TMZ reports that Mr. Machine was arrested for assault yet again last night in San Diego, and this time there may have been a “deadly weapon” involved. This follows a violent episode at a porn party in November, and an arrest outside a gay club in Las Vegas in February of 2009. Are you beginning to see a pattern of behavior emerge?
There’s no word yet on what the weapon might have been, or what exactly happened in Thrusters Lounge that led to War and another person fighting with bouncers when police pulled up to the scene, but Machine reportedly fled from police before being tracked down and covered up with one of those fun little spit bags. You know, like in “Con Air.”
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.
