Rodney King

Pulled Over By Police

-- Cited

3/3/2011 10:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rodney King had another clash with police this week -- the day before the 20 year anniversary of his infamous beating -- but this time, Rodney was only hit with a citation for driving without a license ... TMZ has learned.

Cops in Arcadia, CA received a complaint about a man driving recklessly in a green Mitsubishi Tuesday afternoon ... and when they located the vehicle, they saw King behind the wheel.

A spokesman for the Arcadia Police Department tells us King was pulled over when cops witnessed the car making an unsafe lane change -- and when they approached the vehicle, King admitted he had been driving with an expired license. 

We're told King was cited for the license -- not the reckless driving -- and immediately called a friend to drive him home.

And absolutely nothing else happened.

Can't we all just drive without a valid license? Er, I mean, can't we all just get along? If you drove recklessly, you would have gotten a ticket for it. But, Rodney King? He gets a pass for that because they felt guilty about the last time or were scared what would happen if they did their job. Well, nice to see they didn't beat the cr-p out of him just for driving while Black without a valid license.

He's single-handedly responsible for the now exemplary behavior by the LAPD . . . So much so he inspired their motto . . . "The LAPD -- We'll Treat You Like a King!!"

He must be out of settlement money from the first time. He was hoping he would get another whop ass. Looks like a no money maker this time. Next time call them names, and give the finger, you have to work harder to get good settlements these days.
