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.

This idiot will never learn. People who drink and do drugs then go out and drive are nothing more than garbage. They have no regard for anyone's safety but their own. Put him in jail where he belongs.

Really TMZ?!?! This **** happened a long time ago. Why are you still talking about a guy that got beat, won some money in a civil suit and use it all on drugs, then get's busted for it. Don't you have something better to write about?

TMZ writes? I've seen the show...They have a huge staff, and it seems like they post links to about five stories a day, with some poorly written 100 word captions and misspellings galore. My fifth grade English teacher wouldn't call that writing.

Harvey needs to scaling back some salaries.

Those pigs just can't get enough of giving Rodney King a hard time. California is looking more like cesspool everyday.
