Not The Brightest Kid Around...

I doubt we're gonna see War Machine in the UFC anytime soon.

Apparently he helped someone beat up and choke out some tourist.  Someone forgot to tell him that beatings aren't legal outside of the Octagon:

During Thursday's preliminary hearing, Darren Zatkow testified that he was visiting San Diego with his then-girlfriend when he was assaulted outside the club after a night of drinks on the town.

He said he was confronted by a group of men without shirts who surrounded him as he left the club. He said he was grabbed in a carotid choke hold and dragged a few feet from his friends by one of the men. Zatkow said he did not see who grabbed him from behind.

A New York man who was in San Diego at the time testified for the defense that he saw Koppenhaver hold Zatkow during the confrontation outside, but he said the person responsible for the assault was another one of the men standing outside the club.

If it's true he's an accessory and he's pretty fucked.
