Rodney King has been released on bail after a DUI arrest by Moreno Valley police.

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.
