After a police chase in the early hours of 3rd March 1991, Rodney G King eventually decides to stop his white Hyundai. King had been struck as many as 56 times with the batons. He suffered a fractured leg, multiple facial fractures, and numerous bruises and contusions. Rodney King was released without charge. On March 15, Sergeant Koon and officers Powell, Wind, and Briseno were indicted by a Los Angeles grand jury in connection with the beating.
