    Rodney King Detained For Driving Under Influence

    By Bill Robles | AFP – 10 hrs ago

    Rodney King -- whose videotaped beating by Los Angeles police led to race riots that devastated the city in 1992 -- was detained Tuesday on suspicion of driving under the influence, police said.
    In his latest brush with the law, King, 46, was pulled over in the Moreno Valley area east of Los Angeles, according to Courtney Donowho of the Riverside County sheriff's office.
    "A field sobriety test was conducted, and Mr King was detained and taken back to the Moreno Valley station for further testing," she said, adding: "I don't know yet whether he will be cited and released, or arrested."
    King rose to national fame nearly two decades ago after he was beaten by baton-wielding Los Angeles police following a high-speed car chase.
    Four officers involved went on trial the following year for use of excessive force but were acquitted, sparking the devastating 1992 Los Angeles riots that left more than 50 people dead and caused around one billion dollars in damage.
    Since the events that catapulted him into the spotlight, King has had several brushes with the law.
    He was arrested in 2005 for making threats to kill his daughter and his daughter's mother after the two women got into an argument with his then-girlfriend.
    He was also arrested in 2003 for allegedly punching a girlfriend. He had also pleaded guilty to reckless driving after crashing into a house with his car.
    In November 2007 he was treated in hospital after an incident in which he was shot and wounded in the face, back and upper torso, in the Los Angeles suburb of San Bernardino.
