Sherdog is reporting that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s arraignment, which was scheduled for tomorrow, has been postponed pending further investigation into his arrest. Jackson was arrested on July 15 for suspicion of felony evasion, reckless driving, and hit and run charges. The District Attorney’s Office of Orange County gave these comments regarding the postponement:
“The district attorney’s office is responsible for filing charges and that case is still under investigation based on some new evidence that has been discovered,” said Farrah Emami, spokesperson for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
“There were different incidents that occurred in different jurisdictions. There was Highway Patrol, there was Costa Mesa, there was Newport Beach. We’re looking at all of this as one potential case,” said Emami. “The recommendations of the police are taken into consideration, but it could be more charges or less charges, depending on what the evidence reports.”
By no means am I a lawyer and by no means do I know what this postponement means for Jackson. But I do know that the longer this thing goes on, the worse it is for Jackson. The quicker that this thing can get buried and put behind Jackson, the better it is for him personally and professionally.
