quinton rampage jackson arrested for hit and run

Shocking news being reported by Daily Pilot, Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson went on a bit of a Rampage in his truck this afternoon and was ultimately apprehended police after a short chase.

The driver of a lifted, gray pick-up truck left crashed cars, shredded tires and sparks in his wake this afternoon when he led police on a short pursuit from the southbound 55 freeway exit onto Newport Boulevard where he hit at least three cars, police officials said.

The driver, whom police could not immediately identify, hit two cars at 19th Street and Newport Boulevard, then drove away at about 1:13 p.m., said Lt. Paul Dondero. A Costa Mesa police officer saw the driver southbound approaching 17th Street and tried to pull him over, police said. There, he hit at least one more car before continuing to run, now heading south toward the Balboa Peninsula, Dondero said. Some time after that, the truck blew a tire but continued to drive on its rims, Dondero said.

The driver eventually gave up, pulled over and was arrested, police said. The whole chase lasted about five minutes, Dondero said.”

UPDATE:
Costa Mesa Police Department doesn’t believe that Drugs or Alcohol were a factor.

    Wow nice find Roy this is big news.

    Damnit Rampage what was he thinking.

    I hope this was just heat stroke or maybe hes truck was leaking diesel fumes into the cab.

    Why wouldn't he stop.

    Maybe some gangbangers where chasing or something along those lines. Sure more info will come out soon just ruff news right here.

    I thought Rampage was smarter then this.

    Trying to hit and run with your super-sized picture on the side of your monster truck come on dude.

    Looks like the Rampage vs Forrest rematch won't be happening anytime soon.

    Someone on here commented that Rampage was suspended till January a few days ago. I thought he was just dumb but now I think he is a psychic.

    Yeah, Rampage made a stupid ass mistake…three times. I don't get it, you have money, why run. Fess up and pay so you don't look like a dumbass being arrested for running from the cops in a Big Wheel Billboard of yourself.

    there is no way he was sober! unless he was in some type of bet or something ridiculous like that. this just blows my mind this happening without a motive. i am sure we will all hear of the motive in the coming days. depending on the motive will determine his career. but i can't believe they are gonna post this story all over the internet even on regular news sites and not know the motive yet. i thought our media was better then that.

    No, they like to take cheap shots and be the first to post news. Funny thing i was in the area and he drove right by me as i was coming home from Huntington Beach and then i find out this shit happens, kinda crazy but cool in a way.

    Interesting. He must have been breathing some of that high altitude air in that truck and got dizzy.

    He was breathing in something. Dont think it was the altitude in that truck or the gas fumes that got him high though…did they find funions and jolly ranchers? PUFF PUFF PASS RAMPAGE!
