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.

What I want to know is why was he was pulled over or stopped while walking or whatever he was doing. Apparently there is no such thing as probable cause or reasonable suspicion anymore? OR, there is no such thing as a proper article anymore? Why leave out the most important details of a story and then call it a story? What was he doing? Why was he suspected? Did the cops abide by the law or is this a case of driving or walking while black?

Of course he'll get a pass....the police don't want to deal with another round of riots,etc. He was a druggie and a thug before the infamous beating, and even with rehab and a LARGE settlement, seems to have not learned anything.
