Jackson Charged With Felony

Quinton \

The MMA community has suffered another black eye as TMZ.com is reporting that former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has been charged with a felony hit and run and felony evading arrest in Newport Beach, CA; Jackson, who may be facing additional charges, has been booked into Orange County Jail and bail has been set at $25,000.  Apparently, Jackson had been involved in what was termed “a series of collisions caused by his truck” and had subsequently left the scene.  He then proceeded to evade the police until they caught up to and arrested Jackson.

Police initially received a report of an accident on the CA 55 freeway in Costa Mesa involving Jackson’s truck, which had struck other vehicles and fled the scene; not long afterwards, a Costa Mesa police officer witnessed the highly decorated vehicle get into another collision before fleeing up towards Newport Beach.  According to reports, Jackson was then willingly taken into custody and did not resist arrest; fortunately, there were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.
