A pregnant Huntington Beach woman whom former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson reportedly sideswiped during his high-speed chase from police in California earlier this month has apparently had a miscarriage.
According to a report in the Daily Pilot, Holli Griggs was driving her Cadillac Escalade southbound when Jackson’s truck sideswiped her as he drove along the middle of the highway at approximately 45 mph while fleeing from Costa Mesa officers. Doctors reportedly noticed problems with Griggs in the days following the accident and a recent ultrasound confirmed that she had lost her baby.
Huntington Beach district attorney Farrah Emami has stated that while prosecutors have yet to file any formal charges against Jackson, her office is currently undergoing an investigation into the matter. However it has yet to be determined whether or not it was the accident that caused Griggs to lose her child.
Jackson was released on bail one day after his incident with police. UFC President Dana White reportedly paid the sum. Jackson was brought in by police for a mental evalution later that week after police received a call from worried friends and family about Jackson’s behavior. He will face violations of felony hit-and-run, evading police, and reckless driving on August 15th in court. Despite all of the above, the UFC is reportedly interested in matching Jackson up in a rematch with Wanderlei Silva at a planned November event.
