Rodney King Pleads Not Guilty To DUI Charges

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Rodney King has pleaded not guilty to DUI charges stemming from his arrest in July.

King pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges in a Riverside courtroom Monday afternoon.

King, whose police beating triggered the 1992 Los Angeles riots, is due back in court later this month.

He gained unwelcome fame back in 1991 when he was beaten by four white LAPD officers. A year later, the officers’ acquittals triggered days of rioting that killed 55 people.

    I am so glad that I don’t live in California any longer. Now I realize why I left when I read your posts. Don’t respond because I won’t be reading posts any longer or subscribing. I hope you have the same fate in Fullerton only worse.
