    TMZ has updated their story:

    http://www.tmz.com/2008/07/16/rampag...side-the-ring/

    Same TMZ article as before, but now it's being reported that he was deemed "Medically Unfit" to be booked, and is now in the hospital. Whoa. Ryan Gracie type situation?
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    This is the police's statement:

    A Motor Officer was monitoring traffic at the intersection of Newport Blvd and Broadway. He saw Jackson driving [south] bound weaving in and out of traffic, with a flat front left tire (and) speaking on his cell phone. The Motor Officer activated his lights and siren and initiated a traffic stop. Jackson ignored the Motor Officer and continued south bound on 17th weaving in and out of traffic to avoid being stopped.

    Jackson drove over the raised center portion of the roadway at Cabrillo Ave. He lost control and drove up onto the sidewalk causing pedestrians to flee for their lives. Jackson regained control and continued southbound in the northbound lanes of Newport Blvd. As he crossed through the intersection with 17th St, he collided with a vehicle legally in the intersection. Jackson continued south bound on Newport Blvd running several red lights. The rubber from his left tire began to disintegrate at the PCH overpass. Jackson continued southbound onto the Balboa Peninsula running several more red lights, causing pedestrians to flee in terror. Jackson’s vehicle finally came to a stop at 18th St and Newport Blvd in the city of Newport Beach. Jackson was taken into custody by Costa Mesa Officers without incident.

    Jackson was transported to the Costa Mesa City Jail and booked for; Felony Evading, Reckless Driving and Hit and Run. He was transported to the Orange County Jail and is being held in lieu of a $25,000.00 bail.

    Prior to Motor Officer Barnes actions, Jackson had been involved in two separate collisions on the south bound 55 FWY. The CHP is taking those reports.

    Jackson is a former Ultimate Fighting Champion title holder and fought under the name Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

    Wow!!! Although there were no drug or alchohol charges filed it sounds like he was pretty banged up to be driving like that.
