War Machine: New Details On His Arrest
More information continues to be revealed about War Machine’s Aug. 15 hotel arrest. Hotel guest Mary Casamento called police after allegedly watching a “big dude” yelling and pushing another woman, according to KTLA. The woman was reportedly attempting to calm him down and he “grabbed her by the hair,” Mary said.
Another hotel guest, who witnessed War Machine’s arrest, also shared her story with KTLA.
“And they were like banging on the door, trying to get it open, and they’re like, ‘Open the door, open the door,” Nicolle Blankenship told KTLA. “Finally when they got it open they yelled, ‘Gun,’ and then all of a sudden you see them shoot him with a Taser. And he got shot with a Taser and he went down to the floor, and then they handcuffed him.”
When police went into War Machine’s room, they found “a small quantity of cash and some pizza,” TMZ reported.
