Jeremy Jackson, a two-time veteran of the UFC and a controversial cast member of the fourth season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, was reportedly arrested last week on multiple charges, which include rape, assault, kidnapping, and burglary among others.
The news comes from our friends at MMA Junkie, who have confirmed Jackson’s arrest with officials from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department in California. His inmate page via the department’s official website can be found here. (Did anyone else know Jackson was only 26?)
Jackson is currently being held behind bars at the Todd Road Jail with bail set at $1 million. He is scheduled to appear in front of a judge on July 16th and will enter his plea at that time. The police department has yet to officially comment on the arrest nor release any details regarding Jackson’s actions.
The total list of charges facing Jackson includes two counts of forcible rape, 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 also reports that Jackson was charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of sex crimes after his arrest as well.
Jackson was defeated both times in his UFC bouts, suffering submission losses to Nick Diaz and Pete Spratt respectively. He most recently competed at a Total Combat event last March, defeating Hector Carrilo by TKO in the first round.
