Rodney King Cuts Reckless Driving Plea Deal
Mr. Can't We All Just Get Along was not present for the plea and sentence: 20 days of home detention with an ankle monitor, three years of probation, nine months in a sobriety education program and a $500 fine.
In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

Authorities later claimed his blood alcohol level was 0.6 percent. Riverside County prosecutors say they cut the plea deal because they were unsure whether they could convince a jury King had been driving at or above the legal limit of 0.8 or higher.
