(Newser) – Rodney King was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence yesterday after officers observed him committing "multiple infractions," TMZ reports. The 46-year-old King—whose videotaped beating by LAPD officers led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots—has had multiple run-ins with the law in the years since the riots. He has admitted struggling with alcoholism and recently appeared on Celebrity Rehab.
