"Police: Rodney King Slams SUV Into House

RIALTO, Calif. - Rodney King, whose videotaped beating led to the deadly 1992 riots in Los Angeles, was hospitalized with a broken pelvis after he lost control of his SUV while weaving through traffic at 100 mph and crashed into a house, police said..."

No need for a beating this time, it appears.

Rodney King and Lottery winners--TV show ideaColnagoFE

Hey...your comment just made me think of a new TV show gauranteed to be a big hit. It's a reality show following the lives of those who have just won the lottery or gotten some sudden windfall of money. I've heard rumors that big lottery winners often have all their money spent in a few years due to poor financial planning. And the public LOVES to see someone make something of themselves and then fall flat on their face. Kind of a twist on the E! True Hollywood story. Average Joe makes millions, blows it all on drugs, fast cars and hookers, and ends up worse off than before.
sounds sort of like Twilight Zone nmDougSloan

As Cedric's character said in the movie: Rodney King deserved to get his ass beat for driving drunk and rolling in a Hyundai.
