Rodney King stopped after traffic violation, police say
The stop took place about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday near Santa Anita Avenue and the 210 Freeway.
In recent years, King has battled substance abuse and in 2008 appeared on the reality TV show "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
In an interview with The Times, King said he was on the show to demonstrate he had reformed and was not the same person captured in the grainy videotape that showed him being pummeled by four Los Angeles Police Department officers in 1991.
