LAPD arrested King on suspicion of residential burglary, and she reportedly remains in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail, per the report. 

“Tristan King has been located,” Lieutenant Rudy Flores of the Santa Monica Police Department tells Los Angeles Magazine. “She was arrested by LAPD Olympic Division on May 2.”

“According to our detectives, it was burglary,” Flores said.

“Her family has been updated and she was removed from the system as a missing person,” said Flores.

King’s next court date is May 16.

Rodney King made headlines in the early ’90s after his brutal beating by members of the Los Angeles Police Department was caught on video. The acquittal of officers in 1992 sparked the violent LA riots. King died in 2012.
