Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver is wanted by Las Vegas police after a domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend, porn star Christie Mack.

According to police, there was an altercation early Friday morning at their home in Vegas involving three people, with two of them sustained “severe, but non life threatening” injuries.

When officers arrived on the scene, they reportedly determined that War Machine was the “primary suspect” but police were not able to track him down all day.

Bellator President Scott Coker told TMZ Sports:

“We have a zero tolerance policy here at Bellator when it relates to any form of domestic violence, and after learning of this latest incident involving (Jon Koppenhaver) War Machine, Bellator is releasing him from his promotional contract with the organization.”

He was arrested back in 2010 for assault after a bar fight in San Diego. He was sentenced to a year in jail.
