This guy needs help.
MMA fighter War Machine was arrested after he brutally beat up his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and a friend of hers, Corey Thomas, at her Las Vegas home.

Oscar Pistorius Might Not Get An Early Release From Prison Because Monitoring Tags Can NOT Be Placed On His Prosthetic Legs
Just last month, Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to 5 years in prison for shooting and killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. However, the former sprinter was hoping to appeal for parole after serving 10 months behind bars.
Unfortunately for Oscar, sources are saying that wont be possible because officers would NOT be able to attach monitoring ankle bracelets to his removable prosthetic legs.
Prison officials have reportedly told the double amputee that he would not qualify for the monitoring system due to his disability, and under South African law electronic bracelets may not be placed on the wrist because they are too easy to remove.
A source has already confirmed this, saying:
Arnold Abbott is a 90-year-old man and friend to homeless people everywhere.
The Florida man has been feeding Fort Lauderdale's homeless people since the early '90s but only recently a new law was made that requires a permit to be able to feed the homeless.
Which means he'd also have to do things like provide portable toilets to be in compliance with the law.
Well, that's pretty intense as far as rules go… and Abbott was issued a citation earlier this week for feeding the homeless. Oh, and just last night was cited again for the same thing!
Ray Rice Set To Testify In Court After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Gets Questioned By His Lawyers
Just days after Adrian Peterson avoided jail time in his child abuse case, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to immediately switch his attention over to another ugly scandal.
The commish made his way to a New York courtroom yesterday where he testified and was cross examined in Ray Rice's hearing to appeal his indefinite suspension from the league.
The hearing stems from the footballer's suspension that took place nearly two months ago after footage showed him punching his now wife Janay Rice in an elevator, knocking her unconscious.
A contestant from Top Chef, Aaron Grissom, has gone from working the oven on the reality show to landing in a fiery situation as he's been arrested for felony domestic violence.
The incident went down on Tuesday afternoon at his San Fernando Valley home, where he apparently got into a very vicious argument with his girlfriend. It got so out of control, or Aaron got so out of control, that he pushed his girlfriend… which injured her knees.
