The fighter formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver, now legally known as War Machine (6-2), has been arrested in Las Vegas, NV.

No, rather he was put under citizen’s arrest on charges of misdemeanor battery according to initial reports.

Jay Rivera, a representative with the Public Information Office of the Metro Police Department, confirmed that Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver was arrested Saturday, February 8 at approximately 4 a.m. local time. According to Rivera, a citizen’s arrest was made of Koppenhaver on charges of misdemeanor battery.
