Shocking news being reported by Daily Pilot, Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson went on a bit of a Rampage in his truck this afternoon and was ultimately apprehended police after a short chase.
The driver of a lifted, gray pick-up truck left crashed cars, shredded tires and sparks in his wake this afternoon when he led police on a short pursuit from the southbound 55 freeway exit onto Newport Boulevard where he hit at least three cars, police officials said.
The driver, whom police could not immediately identify, hit two cars at 19th Street and Newport Boulevard, then drove away at about 1:13 p.m., said Lt. Paul Dondero. A Costa Mesa police officer saw the driver southbound approaching 17th Street and tried to pull him over, police said. There, he hit at least one more car before continuing to run, now heading south toward the Balboa Peninsula, Dondero said. Some time after that, the truck blew a tire but continued to drive on its rims, Dondero said.
The driver eventually gave up, pulled over and was arrested, police said. The whole chase lasted about five minutes, Dondero said.â€
