    RIALTO, Calif. — Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by Los Angeles police led to deadly riots in 1992, was arrested after he allegedly threatened his daughter and ex-girlfriend, police said.

    King, 40, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of making criminal threats. He was being held on $25,000 bail.

    He was accused of threatening to kill his 23-year-old daughter, Candace, and her mother, Carmen Simpson, after the two got in a fight with King's current girlfriend, Dawn Jean. All three women live in King's home.

    The daughter, who called police, said King was armed with a handgun, but it turned out to be a toy, according to authorities.

    You are probably not far off with that one.

    A lot of violence for one individual even threats. Control issues.

    Did he win a settlement??? I can't seem to remember. I remember the case and the riots, but I just don't remember if he sued and got some money. Anyone remember?

    That was exactly my thought processes without the 3 million settlement. Too dysfunctional.....living arrangements, odd. Nothing healthy going on.

    He sure is. I think he got the DP on that one. But I could be wrong.
