War Machine Tipster

PASSES On Reward Money

8/24/2014 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The woman responsible for the capture of War Machine says she's dying of cancer and has decided to pay the $20K reward forward.

Mary Casamento was staying at the same hotel where War Machine was hiding ... a fugitive from the law after allegedly brutally beating former GF Christy Mack.  

Mary says she heard commotion and saw a woman run out of his room ... bloodied.  She called cops who came and arrested him.

Mary scored a $20K reward -- $10K from Christy's family and an equal amount from "Pawn Stars" star Corey Harrison --  but she's not cashing in, because she already has enough to last her for the rest of her life.  She's decided to give the dough to a Santa Clarita, CA  battered women's shelter.

Give this woman a reward award.
