An article on TMZ.com has more details on Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s arrest yesterday. Jackson was arrested with his face down in the middle of the street with cops’ guns pointed at his head in Orange County, California after crashing into 2 cars, fleeing the scene and leading police on a 5-minute car chase. As noted yesterday, he was charged with felony hit and run and felony evading arrest and was taken to a hospital last night for evaluation.
According to another report on TMZ.com, Rampage was on the 55 Freeway when he hit 2 cars. Instead of stopping, he got off of the freeway and the police chase was on. Rampage then began driving on the center divider. According to the police report, Jackson then drove on the sidewalk, “causing pedestrians to flee for their lives.” He started driving on the wrong way on a crowded street, colliding with yet another car in an intersection.
As he continued on, running several red lights, his tire blew out and he began driving on the rim. He eventually got to Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, where he again driving on the sidewalk, “causing pedestrians to flee in terror.”
His car eventually came to a stop and he was taken into custody at gunpoint. Cops took him to the Orange County Jail, but they determined he was “medically unfit” to be booked. No word on whether drugs were involved. Rampage is currently under evaluation at an Orange County hospital.
Another TMZ article noted that in an interview a day before the arrest, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson revealed that he had been battling depression, injuries and weight issues. The article goes on to point out that throughout the entire interview, Rampage’s ramblings painted the picture of a guy who just wasn’t right.
