UFC Star Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson Charged With 2 Felonies in Police Chase

Ultimate Fighting Championship star Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has been charged with two felonies in connection with a July incident in which he hit cars and led police on a chase, TMZ is reporting.

He was not, however, charged with causing the miscarriage of a woman whose car he hit; authorities reportedly believe her miscarriage was unrelated to the crash.

According to TMZ, the Orange County District Attorney charged Rampage with one felony count of evading while driving recklessly, one felony count of evading a peace officer, three misdemeanor counts of hit and run, and one misdemeanor count of reckless driving. If convicted he could face up to three years in prison.

UFC has stood by Rampage, saying that exhaustion and a poor diet led him to become temporarily delirious, but that he is now healthy and not a danger to himself or others. Rampage is expected to step back into the Octagon late this year or early next year.
