Christy Mack beating: Police report reveals gruesome details of alleged attack by War Machine

A newly released Las Vegas Police report gives the brutal details in the beating of adult film actress Christy Mack, allegedly at the hands of her boyfriend, MMA fighter and former adult film actor, War Machine.

War Machine, who legally changed his name from Jonathan Koppenhaver in 2008, is accused of beating Mack (real name Christine Mackinday) at her Las Vegas apartment on August 8.

According to a police report Mack says she has been dating War Machine for the past 15 months in an "on-again, off-again" relationship.

Police say War Machine does not live with Mack but has a key to her apartment and showed up around 1:30 a.m. and found her asleep in bed with her friend Corey Thomas.

The police report says that Thomas states he is also in a dating relationship with Mack for 2 to 3 months. Mack told investigators she and Thomas are currently in a "non-sexual relationship", though they have had sex in the past.

Mack told police when War Machine found her in bed with Thomas he slapped her and then began beating up Thomas, punching him as many as 15 times.

Mack told investigators that she dialed 911 from her cell phone and then hid the phone from War Machine as he was beating Thomas.

Thomas told police that War Machine put him in a choke hold almost causing him to go unconscious. He says he was able to get out of the choke hold and War Machine pinned him down and began punching him in the face again. Mack told police the fighting between the two men lasted approximately 10 minutes.

Thomas told police that War Machine threatened to have his friends kill Thomas if he told anyone and then let him leave the residence.

According to the police report, War Machine then began accusing her of cheating on him.

She claimed he began going through her text messages, Twitter and Instagram accounts and then began punching her in the face with his fist every time he found something he did not like, causing her to fall to the ground.

Once she was on the ground, Mack says War Machine kicked her, causing bruising to her right rib and left thigh.

Mack told police she may have lost consciousness at some point.

She told investigators that War Machine took her clothes off of her and forced her to take a shower while he continued to yell at her.

She says the next thing she recalled was being naked on the bathroom floor while War Machine continued to hit her in the face. She described to police how War Machine broke several of her teeth while punching her.

According to the police report, Mack made a lewd comment about her body and told her he was going to rape her.

She told police that War Machine held a dull kitchen knife with a broken handle to her head and threatened her with it.

She said War Machine told her he needed to finish the job and went to the kitchen to look for a sharper knife.

Mack told police when she heard War Machine in the kitchen going through drawers, she went out the bedroom door to the back yard and escaped.

War Machine was arrested at a motel in Simi Valley, California and is being held on 1 count of battery w/ substantial bodily harm, 1 count strangulation, 2 counts battery w/ substantial bodily harm domestic violence-related, 1 count kidnapping domestic violence-related, 1 count open and gross lewdness domestic violence-related and 1 count attempted murder domestic violence-related.
