Rodney King has been charged with misdemeanor DUI, according to reports.
Stemming from his arrest July 12 in Riverside County, Calif., King was charged after officers claim they witnessed Rodney committing “multiple infractions.”
Police eventually suspected he was under the influence and arrested him. King told CNN he was under the influence of a “medical marijuana prescription.”
Rodney King was added to our celebrity mugshots gallery shortly thereafter.

I was just high.
That’s basically the explanation Kacey Jordan has given for last week’s alleged suicide attempt, during which one of Charlie Sheen’s former goddesses texted a number of disturbing messages and was found by police on a hotel bed, surrounded by pill bottles.
Was she really trying to kill herself?
No, says the woman whose real name is Courtney Roskop. She tells TMZ: “I was not trying to kill myself. I was held at Northwestern University’s psych ward for 48 hours, and was evaluated by many mental health experts who all agreed that I was pretty with it. And not psychotic.
Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry may seek sole custody of her child after the arrest of Jonathan Rivera for pot last week in New Jersey. One can understand.
One can really understand in light of the additional fact that Rivera, who goes by Jo, continues to deny that he was ever arrested … even though he was.
Rivera got popped for “being under the influence of marijuana,” while his brother, who was pulled over, ended up charged with even more serious offenses.

According to sources, Kailyn confronted Jo about the arrest and he insistedMore >
Baby daddy Jonathan Rivera of Teen Mom 2 quasi-fame spent Valentine’s Day behind bars for allegedly smoking marijuana, according to news reports.
Rivera, who stars alongside baby mam Kailyn Lowry and their son Isaac, was popped with brother Edward Rivera. Radar Online broke the story.
He has a long way to go to catch Jenelle Evans‘ rap sheet, but he got popped at 11:30 p.m. on February 13 on suspicion of being under the influence.
According to the report by the Lopatcong Township Police Department, Rivera was a passenger in his brother’s Honda Civic when it was pulled over.

It goes without saying at this point, but Michael Jackson did not go out on a high note in 2009. Stress, desperation and medication were all taking their toll.
The star was so worried he couldn’t perform his 50 London concerts, he worried out loud that promoter AEG would cut him loose and he’d have nothing left.
To illustrate just how stressed out he was, he would wonder aloud if he, one of the richest entertainers in history, would end up working at McDonald’s.
NOT OKAY: Michael Jackson was exhibiting all the warning signs.

Bree Olson, just one of many porn stars that have spent a night with Charlie Sheen, was arrested on Thursday in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Police suspected the “actress” of driving under the influence of alcohol.
According to TMZ, Olson was unhurt in a single car accident. She subsequently failed a breathalyzer test, blowing (insert obvious joke here) a .19. As a result, Bree was arrested and later released on $750 bail.
It can be awfully confusing when it comes to Sheen and adult film stars, but Olson was among play things with whom Charlie partied in Las Vegas last month. She may have had aMore >
On this week’s episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, Kim Kardashian pretended to be upset by last year’s naked pictorial in W Magazine.
It was a virtuoso performance, capped by Kim crying that she was misled because the photos were “full-on porn” and then stating: “I’m never taking my clothes off again, even if it’s for Vogue.” We have three responses:
- That sucks for Kris Humphries.
- This is an example of Kim Kardashian at her best/most nauseating: posing naked, playing a victim and still managing to shill for a company.
- We wonder how many takes it took for Kim to make her tears look
Former first round pick Laurence Maroney has been a bust in the NFL. Now, the running back has been busted by the police.
According to the St. Louis Police Department, Maroney was one of five people arrested in a car last night that was stopped because cops observed “several occupants” smoking what they believed to be marijuana.
Three firearms (a .45-caliber handgun, a 9mm pistol and a .223 -caliber rifle) were found inside the car.
While authorities acknowledge that Maroney possesses a valid “Conceal and Carry” permit, it is still unlawful to carry a weapon while under theMore >
Brandi Glanville, the slightly unhinged ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian, was officially charged for an October DUI arrest, the L.A. County D.A.’s office reports.
The model, whose husband cheated and left her for LeAnn Rimes in 2009, was pulled over on Sunset Boulevard Oct.29 and failed a field sobriety test.
Brandi has been at odds with Eddie over LeAnn’s parenting (and everything else) since their split. This isn’t likely to bolster any of her arguments.
Brandi Glanville may have lost her mind … and shirt.
She has now been charged with two misdemeanors: driving under the influence of alcohol orMore >
(HMG Gossip News) – Celebrities are known for their lavish lifestyles and that could not be more evident than in the cars that they drive. Often seen in top of the range vehicles they are the envy of many, especially when they are also able to carry out modifications to make the car more personal and better than any other on the road. However, just because they can afford the best does not necessarily mean that they have the ability to drive them well, or the discipline to be the designated driver on a night out. Within Hollywood there are continuous reports of stars being arrested for DUIMore >
Paula Abdul may be gone from the American Idol judging table, but her influence on pop music remains.
