Rodney King slams SUV into house, breaks pelvis
    #1460668 - 04/15/03 04:25 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

RIALTO, California (AP) -- Rodney King, whose videotaped beating led to the deadly 1992 riots in Los Angeles, was hospitalized with a broken pelvis after he lost control of his sport utility vehicle while weaving through traffic at 100 mph and crashed into a house, police said.

King, 39, was spotted Sunday by a police officer who said King was speeding and weaving through traffic in his 2003 Ford Expedition when he slammed into a utility pole, a chain-link fence and then the home, police said. No one in the home was injured.

King was in fair condition Monday afternoon, hospital spokesman Jorge Valencia said. His condition was not available Tuesday as hospital officials did not answer phone calls.

Police said they suspect that King was intoxicated, and a blood sample was drawn to determine his blood-alcohol level. Test results have not yet been released.

King was not arrested, but a report detailing the crash circumstances will be submitted to prosecutors, police Lt. Kathy Thompson said.

King, who is black, was chased by police through the San Fernando Valley in 1991 and was captured on videotape being beaten by four white officers.

After their acquittal, riots broke out and lasted for four days, leaving 55 dead and more than 2,000 injured. The mayhem caused $1 billion in property damage.

King later received a $3.8 million settlement from the city of Los Angeles in 1994.

He was convicted of spouse abuse in 1999 in San Bernardino County and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and four years' probation.

King pleaded no contest to three counts of being under the influence of PCP and a count of indecent exposure in October 2001.

A judge gave King a year in a drug treatment center even though a prosecutor argued King should spend a year in county jail.

Rialto, where King lives, is 53 miles east of Los Angeles.

they should've beat him worse the first time. I guess he didn't get it.

King was not arrested

Were they afraid to arrest him or something?

poor, poor rodney king. i bet all this drug use and reckless behavior is a result of psychological trauma from being beaten by the police. i guess it was worse than they thought... they should pay for some counseling and increase the amount of the settlement he got from the state of california....

:wink:

Nah.... since the pelvis is already broken, it would REALLY hurt to be beaten there.

Check his rap sheet and the details of the events that made his name a household word.

The cops should not have beat him, but he's a low-life weasel.

is there a place where we could find all the crimes he's committed since they played the drum solo on his head? It seems like everytime you pick up a paper Rodney is doing something else wrong....the cops are afraid to arrest him.

I'm well aware of that. The guy is a clueless fool who needs another good beating to knock some sense into him.

I'd rather it wasn't done by cops though since a whole bunch of clueless assholes will look on it as "racist" and probably riot again, when in reality it was just the cops beating some asshole who needed a good pounding.

i agree, we had the same issue in Detroit. It was the Malice Green case where a cop smacked this crack head upside the head with a flashlight and killed him.

So two cops beating someone to death with flashlights because they suspect he's using drugs is ok in your book?

Do you use drugs?
