War Machine Causes Scene In Court When Motion To Dismiss Charges Are Denied

5

Jon Koppenhaver, better known to MMA fans as War Machine, who is in jail pending a verdict on the case regarding his alleged brutal domestic violence assault on adult film star Christy Mack, caused quite the scene in a Las Vegas courtroom on Wednesday.

Koppenhaver, who had his name legally changed to his MMA nickname “War Machine” caused a scene in a Clark County courtroom this week, as he demanded to take a lie detector test when certain charges were refused to be dismissed.

District Judge Elissa Cadish denied the request for a lie detector test, and also refused to throw out two counts of attempted murder, one count of burglary and one count of sexual assault, claiming that there was more than enough evidence to go forward with the trial.

A spokesperson from War Machine’s legal team released the following statement regarding the incident in court on Wednesday where he demanded a lie detector test. Below is that statement.

“The judge also rejected Mr. Koppenhaver’s request to take a polygraph examination regarding the alleged charges,” the statement read in part. “While this did elicit an outburst from Jonathan, it should be noted he is passionate about the truth being told, and would like to use all possible opportunities to provide it.”
