Cops Say Jackson Went On Rampage

7/15/2008 7:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson got busted just minutes ago, and is currently in custody on the way to the clink -- but not before he was ordered to the ground, cops nearby with guns drawn.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Rampage was in a car crash near Newport Beach (that's near Laguna Beach in the O.C.) and then split the scene. Cops gave chase and eventually caught up and charged him with felony hit and run and felony evading arrest.

Here's the deal about the dumbest hit and run ever. Notice the truck he tried evading police in -- the one with the giant picture of him plastered on the side!

We're told there could be additional charges. No word yet on whether Rampage resisted arrest.

Bad week. He got his ass handed to him last week (courtesy of Forrest Griffin) and just got it handed to him again.

Story developing ...

Losing to Forrest is one thing...man Rampage....you got dinged bad. I think the UFC could possibly wash their hands from this idiot for a while.....Im sure hell show up on Spike fighting a retard vs. retard mactch. Rampage vs. Jesse Taylor. Looks like he took a page out of jesses book.

I think it's really lame of TMZ to steal these pictures.

A poster on Sherdog.net broke this story, not TMZ.

Sorry.

Yeah! Good for you, stay with your own kind, not on my freeway. Don't make me put down this blow-up doll and jump through my PC monitor to teach you a lesson bucko! I may be a 98 pound scrawny white dude who's afraid of my own shadow in real-life, but on here I'm like the Highlander or Neo from the Matrix dude! Don't make me do it! Go ahead, and see if I don't unleash a fury of stale corny racist jokes on your behind!

The OC?? The OC!!!! That's where I live!!! Yea, for the OC!!!!When I saw "Jackson", I thought, "Michael Jackson? No, I don't think so" "Jesse Jackson; umm, I don't know". But it is another Jackson... I don't even know who he is... I guess there is some Calif. justice....

Other websites are reporting that TMZ stole these photos. Looks like the big news here is how TMZ obtained these photos and why apply the water mark.
