The man at the center of unrest in Los Angeles in 1992 has been arrested.
Rodney King has been jailed in Rialto, California, for allegedly threatening his daughter and ex-girlfriend. Police say King was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of making criminal threats. He's being held on 25-thousand dollars 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 say it turned out to be a toy.
