rampage arrest

"Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has been picked up by police again. Sources say last night an Irvine police car was waved down by people near the place Rampage was staying who said he was acting weird. This, of course, following the insane chase the day before in which the UFC fighter hit several cars in his monster truck and was arrested at gunpoint. We're told Irvine cops saw Rampage, deemed him a danger to himself and others, and took him to a hospital for observation. Cops won't officially confirm if it's a psychiatric hold."

More on this developing story shortly -- will attempt to confirm whether or not it is indeed accurate. For more on Rampage and his recent troubles click here, here and here.

UPDATE: This is from Lt. Rick Handfield of the Irvine Police Department via on the most recent situation:

"We did go out to the residence where he was staying at 4:31 p.m. PT (on Wednesday in the city of Irvine, Calif.). We were asked to assist with him and make sure that he was safe and not a danger to himself or others. He was exhibiting some unusual behavior that his friends that were there felt concerned.... At the conclusion of our contact, we did detain him and take him to be seen by mental health professionals. We left him with the mental health professionals."

It's apparent that Rampage is having a really tough time right now. Let's hope he gets the treatment and attention he needs during this time to get back on track.
