Rodney King Stopped by Police Just Before Anniversary of Beating
No, it’s not 1991, but Rodney King is still being pulled over by Los Angeles police. Police said Friday that King had been pulled over Wednesday night for driving erratically. The incident occurred just one day before the 20th anniversary of the infamous night when police pulled him over for driving erratically and brutally beat him. The 1991 beating, caught on video, eventually led to riots that killed more than 50 people. King said he still has nightmares about that night, and since then has battled substance abuse addiction.
