In 2008, Quinton Rampage Jackson was infamously involved in a car chase in which he hits other vehicles, scared pedestrians, and was eventually stopped by armed police. This event recently came up again by Rampage himself when discussing his bout with Tito Ortiz. Rampage disclosed the new information to MMAJunkie:

While defending his former training partner and would-be opponent Tito Ortiz, Bellator light heavyweight and ex-UFC champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson made a startling claim about an infamous part of his personal history.

Jackson, 35, said a 2008 police chase that resulted in his arrest was the result of his effort to stop a suicide.

“All I was doing was getting to my friend because he really needed me,” he today told MMAjunkie Radio. “My friend was going to commit suicide.”

“They never talked about the outcome of things, and so now I’m branded as a certain type of person that did this and did that,” he said. “The true story is not even out there that I saved a life that day.”

“I thought I heard the voice of God telling me to go save Brian,” he said in an interview Thursday after his arraignment on two felony evading arrest charges. “I felt if I didn’t get to Brian, he would die.”

Now, he says, he believes he was irrational because of lack of sleep and nutrition.

“What was I thinking?” he said. “l know now that Brian was never in danger. …But I really thought at the time that he was about to die.”



The article also says that Rampage doesn’t recall being chased by the police or hitting other cars, but does remember, “driving over the median, almost hitting a woman at a bus bench on a sidewalk, driving on the wrong side of the road, and that something was wrong with one of his tires.”

So he remembers doing some illegal shit, but not all of it, and that’s why he should be let off the hook. The hell of it is, he says he accepts “full responsibility” for what happened. And yet he’s pleading not guilty. How does that work, exactly? He accepts responsibility, as long as there are no consequences attached? In other words, he’s content to say he’s at fault, but not be treated as such. Should be interesting to see how that argument plays in court.

Read the article ...

Jackson initially was charged with multiple felonies in connection with the case, but ultimately agreed to a plea bargain on lesser charges and served community service. Orange County District Attorney spokesperson Farrah Emami today told MMAjunkie that the office found no evidence that Jackson had anything to do with the reported miscarriage.

"The evidence actually indicated otherwise – he was not responsible," she said. "He's absolutely correct about that. He was not responsible for that miscarriage."

Court records show Griggs sued Jackson in civil court in May 2009 but withdrew her claim seven months later.

His friend was depressed because he could never become a banker.
