Damn War Machine, just…Damn. I personally talked to War Machine on Monday regarding his attempt to clean up his life. We’re talking about less than 48 hours ago people. Here’s what he told me:
I have a fiance 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.
Now it looks like the dude assaulted someone with a deadly weapon last night outside of a San Diego club. He tried to flee away from the cops but they eventually caught up with War and placed a ‘spit-bag’ of over his head. TMZ has the full report.
Several San Diego police swarmed in on 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.
Damn…damn. When a dude tells you that he’s cleaning up his life, you take is word for it and he’s arrested literally within the next couple of days, all you can say is ‘Damn’ followed by a few ellipses. Damn…damn. Props to MMA_Narcisist for slapping me in the face with the news.
