Don't recall hearing much about his life after that debacle in LA.

I know he was in and out of trouble w/ the law, for Drug and alcohol issues. Even appeared on that reality show 'Celebrity REHAB'. Must not have took b/c his fiancee stated he had a few beers , and smoked a little weed before he went on his final swim.

I'll really miss Rodney King. He was a riot.
