The arraignment of former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (Pictures) has been postponed Friday pending further investigation into his July 15 arrest in Costa Mesa, Calif.

Jackson was arrested on suspicion of felony evading, reckless driving and hit-and-run charges following a chase by authorities that saw elite fighter’s Ford pick-up truck bounce off other vehicles, jump street medians and swerve onto sidewalks, which “caused pedestrians to flee in terror,” according to a Costa Mesa police department report.

This isnt really a shocker its give both sideds a chance to prepare for the arraignment. I love how they over dramatize everything like the “caused pedestrians to flee in terror,”. They make it sound like there was bunch of people running away screaming praying to god to help them. When the case is more likely that they just got to out of the way and were all like what was that. Now that's not saying I agree with what Rampage did because I don't. I just find it funny that the media has a way of making a everything seam way worse than it really is.

I heard they raised the "Terror Level" to red that day.
