Jon " War Machine" Koppenhaver, arrested yet again?






Here he is wearing a "spit bag" captured by TMZ.com. I'm pretty sure that this is him, and I'll see what else I can did up, because I thought he was suppose to be fighting again.

Edit: Here we go:

Ex UFC Fighter -- Assault with Deadly Weapon

Originally posted Mar 31st 2010 3:30 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

Several San Diego police swarmed in on former UFC bad boy War Machine last night and threw a spit bag on his head after cops say the dude assaulted someone with a deadly weapon.

TMZ has learned Machine -- which is the fighter's legal name -- was arrested outside a bar called Thruster's Lounge around 11 pm.

Law enforcement sources tell us Machine and another male were fighting with bouncers -- and when cops tried to approach the situation, War Machine took off running.

Eventually, cops caught up with the 28-year-old, threw him in handcuffs, and for some reason, put a spit bag over his head ... which is generally applied when the perp gets a little too aggressive with his oral fluids.

Machine was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon -- though it's unclear what the weapon is. He's currently being held in a SD jail.

That's in fact true.

If you have any martial arts training at all, your body is considered a weapon.

It's actually not true. It's a complete fabrication made up by several bullshido grand masters. The courts do not consider a martial artist's body to be a lethal weapon. All they look at is the circumstances of the assault and the level of force applied.

Basically a black belt, a boxing champion, and a drunk all get the same charges if they beat someone senseless with their hands. Their is no difference under the law. Assault with a Deadly Weapon actually requires a weapon to be present.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Was posted a little while back wasn't it?

Anyway, the guy's a complete waste of space. Average fighter that somehow feels he deserves to be in the UFC, spends his spare time filming porn movies and beating up porn-stars at partys. Then there was the whole thing of him trying to sell 'part' of his liver on ebay. The guy's a moron. The sooner he's in prison the better.
