Rampage: Terror Outside the Ring

7/16/2008 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Turns out, if local news had run the Rampage Jackson car chase live, it could have gotten Super Bowl ratings because it was one of the craziest chases on record, causing pedestrians to "flee for their lives."

As TMZ first reported, the just-defeated UFC champ was busted yesterday afternoon for alleged felony hit and run. Now we have the details -- and they're insane! Rampage was on the 55 Freeway in the O.C., hit two cars and got off the freeway. The chase was on.

Rampage then began driving on the center divider. But it gets worse. According to the police report, Jackson then drove on the sidewalk, "causing pedestrians to flee for their lives." He started driving 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 disintegrated and he began driving on the rim.

Rampage eventually got to the exclusive Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, where he again drove on the sidewalk, "causing pedestrians to flee in terror."

Eventually, his car 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. Cops won't say if he was high.

Rampage is currently in an O.C. hospital.

The po po should have treated him like a 'KING'-Rodney, that is! What a jag-off.

This is completely out of character for him. As someone who knows this man, this is odd even for Rampage. I mean this is a guy who is nothing like the character he portrays on tv or in the ring ... hopefully it will all make sense.

Perfect example on TMZ "Over dramatizing" the situation to get press. Some day our children will have better things to do than waste time reading this crap like we do..............

Who The Hell Are You to Judge!!!!    

I hate freakin blogs because they only consists of low-life people that cant wait to pass judgment on someone else. I am not apologizing for him but everyone makes a mistake and it is not like he stays in the paper for something negative. So please give him a break. What he did was dangerous to him and could have have been deadly for others but I am sure he will learn from his mistake. Quentin keep your head up and this like all things will come to pass. You have to keep faith in the man above and he will provide and guide you in the right path. From your boy back in Memphis!!!!!M.M.

grrr    

Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that his truck has a HUGE ad for tires on it, and that one of his tires blew out during his chase. Talk about bad advertising!

And that truck is just gawd awful with all those ads on it.

rampage, love you love you love you, and you must be a pretty good driver to not have hit anyone... nice. Police just gotta find a way to mess with the black man... never ending.... whoever was there with the camera, thank god!! Otherwise it might be a dead rampage jackson.... one less act of police brutality is a good thing.. Rampage was probably trying to get into a crowd so the cops couldn't shoot him..

I know Quinton personally and am literally in shock of these events. There has to be some rational explanation that would cause him to display this uncharacteristic behavior. I just hope and pray he's all right and no one was injured.
