Posted by Courtney Pilchman | Sep 04, 2008 | 0 Comments

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson known within the Ultimate Fighting world as a champion fighter was charged with two felony counts of felony evading stemming from a police chase.

Jackson, who lives in Irvine was also charged with several misdemeanor hit-and-run charges causing property damage and misdemeanor reckless driving. If convicted on all charges, Jackson faces a possible three years in state prison.

Jackson was arraigned in the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana and bail was set at $250,000.

According to reports, Jackson was driving his truck on the 55 freeway when he crashed his truck into two cars at the end of the 55 and 19th Street.

According to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, witnesses say they saw Jackson on a cell phone and weaving while driving. When an officer pulled up behind Jackson and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, Jackson sped away.

Moments later, Jackson crashed into another vehicle, drove into oncoming traffic and jumped a curb causing pedestrians who were waiting for a bus to scatter.

Holli Griggs, a resident of Huntington Beach was driving a Cadillac Escalade and was one of the vehicles hit by Jackson. Griggs, later suffered a miscarriage, however, the OC District Attorney's Office says the miscarriage was not a result of the crash.
