We're told ... the Riverside County Sheriff's Department deputies who initially stopped King in Moreno Valley, CA yesterday noticed Rodney exhibited physical signs of marijuana use.

King was detained and transported to a nearby station. After King submitted to a sobriety test, he was arrested for DUI.

We're told King also submitted to a blood test -- but the results are not in yet.  King posted bail and was released soon after his arrest.

Sheriffs are expected to submit the case to the Riverside County District Attorney's Office -- which will decide whether to prosecute King.

He does look baked. I've no more objection to his (potential) weed smoking as I would drinking, but obviously doing either and driving is stupid and he deserved to be arrested.

Marijuana?
Please.
How ridiculous and
now I have to watch the
poor guy's beating over
and over on the news. Don't
the cops owe him a favor after
that horrendous abuse?
Give me a freaking break.

What are the 'physical signs'??? Red eye? And to Tinalouise .. ALL rehab is a joke. Like diet and exercise unless the person wants to work at being sober they will not stop using... Rehab isn't a cure you know, it's a tool, like a diet plan or treadmill.. it's all up to the addict.

If his prosecutor is like Willie Nelson's prosecutor, Rodney could walk.

Finally, a report of somebody driving under the influence of MJ. Okay, this is one out of millions of DUIs that marijuana was solely responsible for the DUI that the police has reported.

I truely think they should let rodney pass. Then his beating can never be brought up by black people again. Fair and fair.
