RIALTO, Calif. (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 SUV 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.
When asked about the damage done to the grass in front of the house he replied “Can’t we all just get a lawn?”
Update: One of the readers of The Corner also sent that pun to Jonah Goldberg.
