“Rampage” Jackson Stays Out of Jail, Gets Probation For Reckless Driving Freakout

(Nothing says ‘law-abiding citizen’ like a mohawk in court.)

You can officially cross legal issues off the list of things that may keep “Rampage” Jackson from returning to the UFC, at least for now. An Orange County judge struck down his felony conviction for evading police and – get this – congratulated him for a job well done successfully completing 200 hours of community service in penance for misdemeanor reckless driving. Just goes to show you that a wild chase that ends with police drawing their guns on you and ordering you to the pavement can still end with an ‘atta boy’ from a judge, as long as you carry it the right way.

‘Page vowed to stay out of trouble from now on, telling the OC Register, “I don’t see myself doing anything crazy again…I want to be a positive role model.” Jackson’s lawyer said his community service consisted of seminars with young people and Marines, and he did more than the amount required by the court.

The mohawk gave Jackson the rare chance to use his court appearance to plug his upcoming "A-Team" movie, saying he had to keep rocking it since filming is still ongoing, adding “it’s going to be a great movie, (especially) for fans of the TV series.” That is, except for those fans of the TV series who will inevitably feel that their happy childhood memories have been brutally raped.

Just further proof that the merican "justice" system is a joke. All it takes is a little money and some connected friends and it doesn't matter what you do. Take a life, terrorize pedestrians, endager the lives of THOUSANDS of people, and the judge CONGRATULATES you for completing the 200 hours of community service, which likely included alot of standing around signing autographs............ WHAT A FUCKING JOKE. FUCK HAMPAGE, I HOPE HE GETS KILLED BY A DRUNK DRIVER IN A POLICE CHASE.

Thats one of the few surefire ways in murica to stay out of jail and get your cake and eat it too,
get in a movie.

As if a guy playing Mr.T in a big budget hollywood remake wasn't getting off scott free in hollywood.

You'd have as much luck trying to sue George Clooney.

However he did not vow to stop making shitty movies. It wouldn't surprise me to see him try and remake "Action Jackson" or "Dolemite."

I would pay good money to see the episode of Cops that features Rampage going on a rampage.

Didn't a pregnant woman lose her baby because of his rampage? If so he's lucky not to be charged with manslaughter.

Maybe he just gave her one of his babies and they called it good.
