Rodney King, who these days resides in that garden spot known as Rialto, was popped on suspicion of driving under the influence Tuesday afternoon.
Valley police officers pulled the civil rights martyr over about 2:45 p.m. near Frederick
Street and Brabham Drive.
According to cops, the stop was prompted by multiple vehicle code
violations (and presumably involved no multiple nightstick lashes to the noggin).
King was arrested after a field sobriety test and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.
