RIALTO, Calif. -- The man at the center of unrest in Los Angeles in 1992 has been arrested.
Rodney King has been jailed in Rialto, Calif., for allegedly threatening his daughter and ex-girlfriend. Police said King was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of making criminal threats. He's being held on $25,000 bail.
King is accused of threatening to kill his 23-year-old daughter and her mother after the two got in a fight with King's current girlfriend. All three women live in King's home.
The daughter, who called police, said King was armed with a handgun, but authorities said it turned out to be a toy.
