Former UFC light-heavyweight champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's recent reckless driving arrest was a source of great hilarity at the time, what with all the sidewalk- and median-driving in a monster truck adorned with the visage of Rampage himself. But it's like I always say: it's all fun and games until someone's unborn child dies. Sadly, one of the victims of Rampage's rampage lost the healthy fetus she was carrying, and Jackson may likely face both criminal charges and a civil suit.
Holli Griggs, 38, lost a baby boy as a result of the crash, and her healthy pregnancy ended as a result of the drunken driving crash caused by fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, her fiancee [Bill Krebs] told the Daily Pilot newspaper… Krebs and Griggs are considering legal action, but "no amount of money will bring back my son," Krebs told the Daily Pilot…
The Orange County District Attorney's office said it is evaluating the medical complications and evaluating whether to charge Jackson in connection with the fetus's death. California law allows a person to be charged with murder if he or she exhibits an "abandoned and malignant heart" that results in a malicious death of an unborn child.
I'm no legal expert, but I'm pretty sure that translates to "Rampage is fucked." People tend to be less friendly to you if you've been charged with fetal homicide. It's like being accused of kitten rape. Crimes against cute things are terrible for PR.
