Rodney King's Been Shot!

11/29/2007 4:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rodney KingRodney King, famous for a videotaped beating from Los Angeles police back in 1991, was shot and wounded on a San Bernardino street corner late Wednesday.

King called Rialto police just before midnight to report the shooting. According to Sgt. Don Lewis, King was struck in the face and arm -- with what appeared to be pellets or birdshot. When police arrived at King's home, they reported that King and others inside appeared drunk. The man got shot in the face -- he deserves a drink!

King was taken to a local hospital, and his wounds were not believed to be life-threatening.

Wow, he is one lucky SOB. Shot in the face and the injuries aren't life threatening. Wonder if he brought it on himself.

lol.....needless to say, he was NOT destined for a life of productivity or success.....I mean he's a loser....everyone knew it back then, everyone knows it now.............the fact is when he was beat excessively by the police it was WRONG, no one of any color should be assaulted by that police for that long and that one said he wasnt a loser, he just didnt deserve to almost die at the hands of the cops! ...............he needs like, a job?
