Rialto, Calif. -- Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by Los Angeles police led to the deadly Los Angeles riots of 1992, was arrested for allegedly making threats following a fight between his daughter, his girlfriend and an ex-girlfriend, police said.
King, 40, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of making criminal threats. He was held on $25,000 bail.
Police were called to the King home shortly after 4:15 p.m. Authorities said King's live-in girlfriend, Dawn Jean, 29, got into a fight with daughter Candace King, 23, who also lives in the home.
The daughter allegedly assaulted Jean, leading Carmen Simpson, Candace King's mother, who also lives at the home, to get involved in the fight, police said.
King allegedly threatened to kill his daughter and Simpson. Authorities said the daughter, who called police, said King was armed with a handgun, but it turned out to be a toy.

Race is the biggest problem we face in this country. I don't have to explain it, do I? We all know what's going on."""
Stupidity is the biggest problem in the USA.
Followed very closely by being too lazy to get educated with the free schools offered from start thru high school.
You and your "brothers" & "sister" have spent all of your lifetimes refusing to be responsible, etc. etc. I could go on and on.
You are a class A PUKE, and you keep proving the police who apprehended you correct from the start of the chase of you that awful night. 6 different agencies tried to stop you.
May you rot in He!! for all the trouble you have caused.
"Shoulda shot him" FOR WHAT?
We just kill people now or have a dozen police beat them senseless..because they resisted arrest?
LOL...I just had to look at the thread to see how long it took for SOMEONE to say it...and it was YOU!
Now Rodney, you HAD to know something was gonna go down when you started dating a chick only six years older than your daughter! ;)
Man, what a life!
dang....what a prince
How do you beat someone who's sleeping?
I mean, sure, you have the advantage of surprise, but after you land that first pop, unless you're dealing with someone who's not asleep so much as comatose, he's gonna come up swinging.
Gee, that's only the 83 billionth time that question has been posed when Rodney King's name pops up. How original.
He might have beat her with a cowbell.
King was high on PCP - L.A. officers ordered him several times to put his hands up and he refused.
L.A. officers tried to subdue him - however, being high on PCP is akin to having super-human strength. Even after the videotaped nightstick beatings, King STILL wouldn't get down.
The rest, as they say, has been whitewashed by the MSM and was partially responsible for putting Clinton in the WH.
Yep...needs more cowbell.
Why can they can arrest someone for armed criminal action in a bank for using a toy gun and not in a house.
Easy, guys . . . I put my pants on just like the rest of you, one leg at a time. Except, once my pant are on, I make gold records.

I hadn't watched SNL for a long time, and DH and I watched the night of the infamous cowbell. It's so bad at our house, Hubby will taste the soup and say, "Pretty good, but it needs more cowbell."
So...the girlfriend and his daughter's mother live in the same house???? That's a recipe for disaster right there!! LOL!
"Don't Fear the Reaper" is apparently fitting to Rodney King.
"Asked if society has learned to get along since the riots"
What idiot asked this idiot this question?
it was said tongue in cheek. sorry I didn't make that clear.
but I sure hope you aren't defending this creep. he got what he deserved from those cops.
