Judge pulls probation for ex-fighter War Machine
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge in Las Vegas revoked probation for former mixed martial arts fighter War Machine on a prior felony conviction while he awaits trial on charges that could get him life without parole for allegedly trying to kill his porn actress ex-girlfriend and her friend.
Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver’s lawyer, Brandon Sua, said Tuesday that Koppenhaver doesn’t dispute leaving Nevada without permission before his August arrest at a hotel in the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley.
Koppenhaver was sought at the time after Christy Mack reported he attacked her and a male friend at her Las Vegas house.
Koppenhaver faces trial Feb. 17 in that case.
The judge on Tuesday invoked a 1½-to-4 year sentence she suspended in February 2012 after Koppenhaver’s guilty plea in a felony attempted battery case.
