Christy Mack’s Former Boyfriend Tries to Kill Himself Inside Jail
Karma is in deed a b**ch. Christy Mack‘s former boyfriend tried to end his life inside jail. The dude’s is actually a mixed martial art fighter whose stage name is War Machine. His real name is Jonathan Koppenhaver. The fighter had earlier beaten Christy senselessly which left her with a few broken bones.
The former MMA fighter got a taste of his own medicine when he tried to strangle himself inside his cell using a rope that was tied on his bed. It’s only by good luck that one of the prison guards happened to be around. The officer who was on duty on that particular Tuesday evening said that he realized Jonathan did not respond to his calls and so he decided to check on him.
According to Dailymail, Jonathan was found on the floor and he could not talk due to suffocation. The fellow had actually written a letter that was to explain the reason behind his decision. It is the same officer who alerted the medics who came to his aid. The former fighter has since been separated from other inmates and is being monitored round the clock.
Jonathan was put behind bars to wait for his trial after he was charged for attacking his former girlfriend, Christy Mack. Christy is actually a pornstar. The MMA has so many charges including attempted killing, sexual assault, burglary and kidnapping. The first hearing of his case was held in September at a court in Las Vegas. The judge did not sentence him because he did not agree that he was guilty of all the offenses.
Christy said that the beating resulted in 18 broken bones around her eyes in addition to a broken nose. The fighter would have been freed on bail but the presiding judge maintained that he can not be bailed out because he is a threat to Christy’s life.
On her part, Christy explained that she did not understand what /4/have prompted her former boyfriend to attack her. While being interrogated by police, Christy stated that she and her pal Corey Thomas were resting in her house when Jonathan walked in and started beating Thomas and later turned to her. The 23 year old star argued that Thomas was kicked out of her house by the MMA fighter and warned against reporting him to the authorities because he would send his boys to kill him. Christy said she got a window of opportunity to run out of the house when Jonathan went to get a knife from her kitchen.
The MMA fighter is known by many for winning the UFC challenge in 2007. The former champion switched to a different name in 2008. Ironically, it’s in the same year that he was defeated in a pay per view match. He recorded another defeat in October last year.
