Jeremy Jackson, cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter: The Comeback”, has been arrested in Oxnard, California and charged with seven felonies, including two counts of forcible rape. The arrest was made in late June.
Jackson, who is 26 years old, is currently being held in a Ventura County jail, for lack of $1,000,000 bail.
The exact details of the arrest have not yet been made available.
Along with the rape charges, Jackson was also charged with kidnapping to commit another crime, first-degree residential burglary, assault with a firearm, dissuading a witness by force or threat, and criminal threats. Three additional felony charges were also levied against Jackson at his arraignment which included two counts of sexual assault and an aggravated sex crime charge.
Jackson was kicked off “TUF” when he left the house to meet a woman, which is a clear breach of the rules. He returned at the season finale only to injure his neck in a loss to Pete Spratt. He has only fought once since then, winning a fight in March of ’07.
Jackson’s next court date is Wednesday, when he expected to enter a plea to the charges before him.
