Rodney King Arrested For DUI

The world’s most famous victim of police brutality has fallen foul of the law again.

Rodney King, whose beating at the hands of police sparked the 1991 Los Angeles riots, has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Southern California.

The Moreno Valley Police Department said officers pulled King over after seeing him commit several alleged traffic violations.

He was booked into jail for investigation of DUI, and bail was set at $2,500.

King was the black motorist whose beating by four white police officers in 1991 exposed racial wounds and led to devastating riots.

He has struggled with sobriety and appeared on television’s Celebrity Rehab.

A police spokesman said no arraignment date has been set.
