TOYO Tires stays with Rampage Jackson, for now







TOYO Tires Rampage Jackson caught - Again!
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has been picked up by police again.
The new formula in getting tire sponsorships. Go nuts.

Sources say around 4:30 PM yesterday, friends who were hanging out with Rampage, waved down an Irvine police car after they were 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. We're told Irvine cops saw Rampage, deemed him a danger to himself and others, and took him to a hospital for observation. Rampage was very coopertive with police. Cops won't officially confirm if it's a psychiatric hold.
TOYO Tires pieces for sale!
That's right ladies and gentlemen, for the small price of $20 you can own your very own piece of the wildest, craziest, most splendiferous celebrity car chase since O.J. Simpson rumbled his white Bronco down the 405!One unlucky bystander, who "almost got hit by this big a** truck being chased" was crafty enough to pick up the pieces of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's reputation -- in the form of one shredded monster truck tire. Of course, the entrepreneur put up an ad for the tire on Craigslist, which the dudes from Deadspin.com happened to catch while trolling for used car parts.
Earlier reports:
Watch out (So-Cal) pedestrians -- Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was just released into the wild. After being refused from an Orange County jail for being "medically unfit" -- Rampage was treated an O.C. hospital and released on $25,000 bail.
Turns out, if local news had run the Rampage Jackson car chase live, it could have gotten Super Bowl ratings because it was one of the craziest chases on record, causing pedestrians to "flee for their lives." Just what a tire company wants in southern California, right?
As TMZ first reported, the just-defeated UFC champ was busted yesterday afternoon for alleged felony hit and run. Now we have the details -- and they're insane! Rampage was on the 55 Freeway in the O.C., hit two cars and got off the freeway. The chase was on. Rampage then began driving on the center divider. But it gets worse. According to the police report, Jackson then drove on the sidewalk, "causing pedestrians to flee for their lives." He started driving the wrong way on a crowded street, colliding with yet another car in an intersection. As he continued on, running several red lights, his tire disintegrated and he began driving on the rim.Rampage eventually got to the exclusive Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, where he again drove on the sidewalk, "causing pedestrians to flee in terror."Eventually, his car came to a stop and he was taken into custody at gunpoint. Cops took him to the Orange County Jail, but they determined he was "medically unfit" to be booked. Cops won't say if he was high.
Does TOYO Tires want to sponsor this guy?
