Rodney King Shot

POSTED: 12:04 pm PST November 29, 2007
UPDATED: 12:13 pm PST November 29, 2007

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- Southern California police said 1991 police beating victim Rodney King has been shot, but the wounds are not life-threatening.

Rialto police Sgt. Don Lewis told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that King was hit in the face and arm by shotgun pellets on a San Bernardino street corner Wednesday night. He bicycled to his home in Rialto to call police and was taken to a hospital.

Police said when they arrived at the home, King and others there appeared drunk and few were cooperative in providing information.

San Bernardino police Lt. Scott Paterson tells the San Bernardino County Sun that the shooting may have involved a domestic dispute.

King was beaten by Los Angeles police in 1991 and the officers' subsequent acquittal on criminal charges sparked deadly rioting in 1992.

Nah, he's been too busy. You figure after he won his $3.8 million dollar civil case he was arrested in 1999 for beating the shit out of his wife. Then in 2001 he was ordered to undergo a year of drug treatment after pleading guilty to three counts of being under the influence of phencyclidine (angel dust / PCP) and one count of indecent exposure. Then in 2003 he was arrested again for speeding, running a red light while being under the influence of alcohol. Similar charges from his 1991 arrest.

Rodney is doing just fine. Minus being shot in the face with bird shot, he has his own bicycle, gets drunk with his boys, beats the shit out of his wife, drives drunk while trying to out run the police and still seems to have a love for PCP.

All is good with Rodney. I see a Nobel Peace Prize in his future.
