Being strung out on Red Bull usually doesn’t contribute to many incidents of crime. But then, many of us aren’t Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. In yet another follow-up/story change to the historically bizarre insanity that was his monster truck trip through Los Angeles and Orange County, we are now told what else is to be blamed: The Secret.
Jackson’s big night started with energy drinks (or so we’re told, was he not drug tested after arrest?) and ended with a marathon session of watching the New Age DVD “The Secret”.
The chase apparently ended in front of friend Brian Talbert’s home. Rampage had spent the night before watching the DVD of “The Secret” over and over again, and then remembered he had loaned a copy to Talbert, and became obsessed with getting to him to make sure he watched it.
As John Edwards — the Senator, not the dead people talker guy — knows, getting mixed up in that New Age stuff can ruin one’s life.
Jackson’s dash through sunny suburbia was a seemingly altruistic scramble to save a friend that had the pesky side effect of contributing to a woman’s miscarriage and raising auto insurance rates for everyone within several postal codes of his home. Jackson tells the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER:
“I thought I heard the voice of God telling me to go save Brian,” he said in an interview Thursday after his arraignment on two felony evading arrest charges. “I felt if I didn’t get to Brian, he would die.”
Now, he says, he believes he was irrational because of lack of sleep and nutrition.
“What was I thinking?” he said. “l know now that Brian was never in danger. …But I really thought at the time that he was about to die.”
Glad we got that cleared up.
