Rampage Jackson Arrested 4 Hit & Run
Rampage Jackson was arrested today for a hit & run, while driving in Newport Beach, California. I didn't actually see Rampage or his truck, but I did see a number of police cars whizzing around near the freeway entrance today. It's a shame, this comes at a bad time right after his loss to Forest, I hope it doesn't send him down a bad path.

Yeah, what was this all about?
All he did was hit some fools car... but decided not to pull over... hit more *hit... and get jacked up by police.
Then Dana flies to OC to post bail.

Yeah, it says he was on the way to training, but I think he may have been intoxicated because he drove over the center dividers, he drove the wrong way down one way streets, and finally he drove up onto the sidewalk causing pedestrians to dive out of the way. So there is a good chance someone could have gotten hurt here.
I have some friends that live down in Balboa, close to me here in Newport Beach, and they witnessed some of this first had. He was ordered out at gunpoint and appeared to be talking / mumbling to himself.
Sucks for his kids / family

I know he did it to himself, but damn it sucks for Rampage to be in this situation. He could have had a rematch for the belt, but now title contention is far away.
Hopefully all is well and no one got hurt, but I hope he pulls through this, whatever it was that caused him to do this BS. Whether it be alcohol, drugs, or something personal.

He'll be fine. Dana has the cash to get him a good lawyer and it is in his best interest to keep an asset like Rampage as active as possible. I can almost guarantee that most of the charges will be dropped and/or reduced to just a fine, probation, and some community service.

This is how I see it: With all the top 10 fighters booked for bouts, and Wanderlei Silva fighting in December, he's left to fight: Jardine, Shogun, or Rampage. Wand vs Rampage 3 = big money.
I hope he pulls it together, whatever the case. I don't want to miss that fight!

Trying to figure out why he has to have his pic on the truck. You would think he would want less attention. Instead he is in a 12ft tall cromed out truck with his pic on it.
It kinda supprised me because it seemed that he was fairly well grounded...for an MMA figter. :-)

Rampage was arrested again last night and taken to psych hospital. WTF this guy's losing it.
Sources say last night an Irvine police car was waved down by people near the place Rampage was staying who said he was acting weird. This, of course, following the insane chase the day before in which the UFC fighter hit several cars in his monster truck and was arrested at gunpoint.
We’re told Irvine cops saw Rampage, deemed him a danger to himself and others, and took him to a hospital for observation.
Cops won’t officially confirm if it’s a psychiatric hold.

Maybe further contemplation of his controversial loss by questionable decision finally got to him and he's snapping. Perhaps being Champ meant more to him then he knew. Oooorrrr he's just having a bad couple of days. He's one of my favorite personalities, I'd hate to see him go. It's the media and that dang Britney Spears thats making our kids and Pro MMA fighters act the way they are today.

I remember one of the first times I say him interviewed on a Pride fight. He said what he liked most was that he got paid to slam a MFer and whip his ass without having to go to jail.

Rumor has it that he got arrested again today in Irving, Ca for being a danger to himself and others, and was admitted to a psych ward for examination.

You've got to take into consideration that the Pride belt meant a lot to him too. He said he just got it after working so hard for it and lost it.
No way the UFC was giving him a title shot, Chuck vs Forrest=big $$$. Rampage vs Wandy 3 = Big $$$. Hell i'm sure they'd want to hype up a Shogun vs Rampage 2 before he ever saw a title shot.
I'd be depressed as sh*t if I was in his situation too.

"Though authorities had originally stated that no one had been injured, the OC Register reported that a pregnant Huntington Beach woman was hospitalized after her car was sideswiped on the freeway."

jackson is going through a mental breakdown and ppl should understand that this is something serious. jackson was not dui or had any illegal substances in his car. yes what he did was wrong and he definitely could have hurt ppl, but this is deeper than just somebody breaking the law.
