Posted: Updated:
Widespread rioting broke out across Los Angeles on the night of April 29, 1992. Earlier in the day, a jury acquitted four LAPD officers of nearly all charges in the videotaped beating of Rodney King. News 8's Gina Lew was in the middle of the mayhem just hours after the rioting erupted.

P.S. - The rioting lasted six days causing more than $1 billion in damages and 53 riot-related deaths.
