“Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me,” Mack said. “He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face.”

But War Machine’s brother, Michael Eugene Koppenhaver, came out and claimed that Mack had it all wrong. In fact, he said that his brother walked in on Mack having sex with the other man.

War Machine evaded capture for a week until he was arrested in Simi Valley, Calif.
