Rodney King out on bail after DUI arrest


Officials said they observed him commit several traffic violations Tuesday afternoon and pulled him over.

They gave him a field sobriety test and eventually booked him.

King's videotaped confrontation with the /*Los Angeles Police Department*/ and the eventual acquittal of the officers involved led to the 1992 riots.

King has had several run-ins with the law since then and has struggled publicly with sobriety.
