Rodney King just can't catch a break.
He was pulled over by police on Wednesday, just one day before the 20th anniversary of his infamous beating that was caught on tape.
Police in Arcadia, Calif. received a complaint when King was spotted driving recklessly in a green Mistubishi. Cops pulled him over and cited him for driving with an expired license. He was then released from the scene.
King reportedly called a friend to drive him home.
Wow. We really can't believe the irony with this guy. Although, with his troubled past, we do kinda feel for him.

Oh good lord, just leave this douche in the gutter where he belongs!
Despite his apparently successful stint on Celebrity Rehab 2, Rodney King's ex-girlfriend claims that he started smoking crack the minute he left the show!
Dawn Jean says:
“When he got out of Sober House, I’d say it was two weeks before he was high again. We were in the backyard cleaning the pool and everything, and he reached up and I’m like 'what are you doing?’ and he just reached up and pulled this stuff down and I was like 'Oh no. Oh Lord, here we go again.' I think he really, truly wanted the money. That was it…that was it. Only when he would get low on money…that’s when he would stop. But as soon as some more money would come around, it was on again. He always said [to me] he’s been doing this forever…he ain’t gonna stop. That’s him and his life. That’s what he wants.”
She even claims when he came back on the following season to talk about his sobriety, he was effed up on crack! GEESH!
"They paid him for that one day…I was right there because I took him and he was not sober. As a matter of fact, he pulled an all-nighter the day before and he had to take a nap the day of the taping before the driver came and got him. That’s his image that he tries to carry…that he’s still sober, that he’s trying to be this positive person. But he fools everybody, the way he fooled me at the beginning. I just was stupid enough to stay with him. But he’s not sober. It’s all bull. It’s just a bunch of bull. That’s all.”
Wow. Those are some pretty hefty allegations.
