RODNEY KING

Rodney King, the black motorist whose 1991 videotaped beating by Los Angeles police officers led to some of the nation's most destructive race riots, has died at age 47.

His death was confirmed to the Associated Press by Suzanne Wickham of Harper Collins, who published King's 2012 book The Riot Within My Journey from Rebellion to Redemption.

King was stopped for speeding in March 1991 by four officers who hit him more than 50 times, kicked him and shot him with stun guns. A bystander videotaped the beating.
