Rodney King is an American who was involved with the LAPD police brutality case, he has a net worth of $1.25 million. Rodney King has earned his net worth from his lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department. King was born on April 2, 1965 in Sacramento, California. King was convicted and sentenced to 2 years imprisonment for the robbery he committed in November 1989. King robbed a store in Monterey Park, California in which he used an iron bar to threaten and hit the store owner. King is divorced and has three children, it was confirmed on September 9, 2010 that he has plans to marry Cynthia Kelley, who was a juror in the civil suit he brought against the City of Los Angeles. The police beating of King occurred on March 3, 1991, the whole incident was video-taped by George Holliday who was an innocent bystander. The video shows how officers repeatedly hit king with their batons. Other LAPD officers who were present just stood around and watched and no one stepped in to help stop this brutal beating. Later the four officers were tried in a state court, three of them were acquitted and no verdict was reached for the four one. The results of this trail are what caused the 1992 Los Angeles riots. During a federal trial for civil rights violations two of the four LAPD officers were found guilty and sent to prison, however the other two were acquitted of all charges. As a result of the civil rights trail King was awarded a $3.8 million dollar settlement, he used some of the funds to start his own Hip-Hop music label titled Straight Alta-Pazz Recording Company. Like his father, King is an alcoholic and has attended rehab several times as well as appearing on the second season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and he also appeared on Sober House, which is a Celebrity Rehab spin-off.
Rodney Glen King (born April 2, 1965) is best known as a victim in a police brutality case involving the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on March 3, 1991. A bystander, George Holliday, videotaped much of the incident from a distance.
The footage showed seven officers surrounding the solitary King, with several LAPD officers repeatedly striking a helpless King with their batons while the other officers stood by watching, without taking any action to stop the beating. A portion of this footage was aired by news agencies around the world, causing public outrage that increased tension between the local black community and the LAPD and increased anger over police brutality, racism and social inequalities in Los Angeles.
Four LAPD officers were later tried in a state court for the beating; three were acquitted and the jury failed to reach a verdict for the fourth. The announcement of the acquittals sparked the 1992 Los Angeles riots. A later federal trial for civil rights violations ended with two of the officers found guilty and sent to prison and the other two officers acquitted.
King was born in Sacramento, California to Odessa King, who had four other children. His father died at age 42. King grew up in Pasadena, California.
In November 1989, King robbed a store in Monterey Park, California using an iron bar to threaten and hit the store owner. He was convicted and sentenced to two years imprisonment.
At the time of the beating, King was divorced and had three children.
On the night of March 2, 1991, King and two passengers, Bryant Allen and Freddie Helms, were driving west on Foothill Freeway (Interstate 210) in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. Prior to driving on the Foothill Freeway, the three men had spent the night watching a basketball game and drinking at a friend's house in Los Angeles.
