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.

    I hope my family is not one of his victims if this guy ever kills someone in a auto accident the only ones to blame is the JUSTICE SYSTEM and then it will cost the taxpayers again put this clown in jail this has to be his 5th or 6th offense time to lock him up no room send him to Arizona they can house theses people cheaper in fact instead of releasing these clowns that the state is thinking of releasing make a deal with other states Nevada, Arizona would be happy to keep these guys and it would save the taxpayers more they house them cheaper than we can any way.
