Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and his attorney, Carol Lavacot, were present for their pre-trial hearing today at the Orange County Courthouse, however chief prosecutor Keith Bogardus was not. Bogardus was held up in a preliminary hearing for a different case and was not able to attend the hearing. The hearing has been postponed until October 24th.
The court proceedings are stemming from Jackson’s arrest on July 15th, when he lead Costa Mesa Police on a car chase. He allegedly hit multiple innocent vehicles during his pursuit, and was finally pulled over by police at gun point.
The 30-year old Rampage pleaded not guilty on August 28th for two felonies and four misdemeanors.
Although the fallen champion is dealing with his off-Octagon troubles, Rampage will be making his return to the cage against former PrideFC foe Wanderlei Silva at UFC92 on December 27th at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
