Trucker’s Attacker Gets In More Trouble

Associated Press

One of the four men convicted of beating trucker Reginald Denny at the start of the 1992 Los Angeles riots was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for violating parole by possessing a gun.

Antoine Miller, 23, could be eligible for release in seven months.

His conviction stemmed from an August 1994 incident in which, authorities said, he argued with people in a car, then pointed a handgun at them and pulled the trigger. The gun jammed, and no one was hurt.

Miller was one of four men charged with beating Denny. He received 27 months’ probation for the beating.
