As is the plot couldn’t play out more and more like a movie, War Machine was found unresponsive in his Clark County, Nevada Jail cell Tuesday evening after an apparent suicide attempt by hanging and is now in a medical isolation cell.
According to TMZ, A Corrections officer “saw him sitting on the ground with his feet up on the bunk bed. When the officer called to him he was unresponsive. The officer went into the cell and found the ex-MMA fighter had a piece of linen around his neck which was tied to the leg of the bed -- and his face was purple.”
All this came after his highly publicized hide and seek session this past August that ended with him being Tasered by U.S. Marshals in a Simi Valley hotel after fleeing the scene of the assault of his now ex-girlfriend and porn star Christy Mack and her friend Corey Thomas. War Machine now faces 32 criminal charges including attempted murder and is awaiting trial without bail.
Surprisingly, Koppenhaver has been very active throughout this ordeal including during his incarceration as can be seen in his Tweets.
