A source close to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has shed new light on the former light heavyweights bumper car escapade a couple weeks ago.
According to our source, Jackson had been up for days without food and was “clearly not in his right mind” when the incident occurred, however, there appears to be a little more to the story.
Our source indicates that Jackson was fumbling around with a contact lens that was giving him trouble while driving and subsequently lost the lens. He was apparently searching for it when he sideswiped at least two vehicles, mildly injuring one woman.
A frightened, paranoid Jackson, who had again, been up fasting for days, then acted on instinct and fled the scene and eventually the police.
Jackson pulled over after giving police a brief chase and was fully cooperative with authorities after that point.
A hearing is set for Aug. 15 in which more details of the case should be revealed. The UFC is looking at a November return date for the popular fighter, possibly against Wanderlei Silva.
