It’s not over …

— TMZ.com reports that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has been picked up by police again. Around 4:30 PM yesterday, friends who were hanging out with Rampage, waved down a police car after they became worried about his behavior. 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. The police saw Rampage, deemed him a danger to himself and others, and took him to a hospital for observation. He was very coopertive with police. Police officers would not officially confirm if it’s a psychiatric hold.
