Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, has been arrested on charges of felony evading, reckless driving and hit-and-run. is reporting that the just-defeated UFC champ was on the 55 Freeway in the O.C., hit two cars and got off the freeway. Police then started pursuing him.

Rampage then began driving on the center divider. 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 driving, running several red lights, his tire disintegrated and he began driving on the rim.

His Ford truck advertises his sponsor, Toyo Tires. It seems they don’t guarantee their tires in police-chase situations. reports that Toyo Tires currently has no intentions of dropping Jackson.
