Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jeremy Jackson Arrested for Sex Crimes

Jeremy Jackson was already a footnote in MMA history for his appearance on The Ultimate Fighter 4, where he was kicked off the show for leaving the TUF house to meet a woman. Unfortunately, it now looks like he’ll be remembered for something far more disturbing — a sex-fueled crime spree late last month that resulted in an arrest and charges of forcible rape (two counts), kidnapping to commit another crime, first-degree residential burglary, assault with a firearm, dissuading a witness by force or threat, and criminal threats.

MMA Junkie confirmed the charges last night, reporting that the 26-year-old is being held in a Ventura County jail, with bail set at $1 million; Jackson is due in Ventura County Superior Court on Wednesday, where he’ll enter pleas to the charges. For more details, you can check out his entry on the Ventura Country Sheriff’s website. (Ed. note: Link appears to be effed up. Go here and search by his name.)

After being kicked off TUF 4, Jackson was invited back for the finale card where he suffered a neck injury in a loss to Pete Spratt. He’s only competed once since then, winning a TKO over Hector Carrilo at Total Combat 19 in March 2007. A month later, the Ventura County Star published a profile on the journeyman fighter, which detailed his traumatic childhood, the death of his brother, and his battle with alcoholism.

Wild, on the Jim Rome show yesterday they reported that an ex college football player from Miami was arrested and released on bail for 3 counts of rape. His name I believe was Jeremy Jackson, I'm curious now, maybe I heard wrong.

@ KCiac:

The police record (new link in the post now) says the Jeremy Jackson in question is a 26 year old male with blonde hair, blue eyes, 5'10", 199 lbs. I'm not familiar with the football player...does he fit that description?
