    Reginald Oliver Denny (born January 22, 1956), 36 years old at the time, was a construction dump truck driver. On the first day of the rioting, Denny was attacked by four men, pulled from his International Road Tractor and brutally beaten, sustaining serious head trauma and other injuries. There was no apparent motive outside of racial hatred. As a result of the injuries he suffered during the attacks, Denny had to undergo years of rehabilitative therapy, and his speech and ability to walk were permanently damaged.[1]

    After the 1993 trial of his assailants, he appeared on the Phil Donahue Show to shake hands with one of the assailants, Henry Keith Watson, after Watson apologized to Denny for the attacks.

    Denny has largely avoided the media and rarely speaks about his ordeal. As of 2007, he works independently as a boat motor mechanic in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, where he moved after an unsuccessful lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles.[1]

    Damian "Football" Williams[edit]
    Damian "Football" Williams, probably the best-known of the assailants, was a 19-year-old with a criminal record including arrests for auto theft and robbery but no convictions. A football star in high school, he dreamed of becoming a professional football player and briefly played in a semi-professional league. When he was 16, he dropped out of school and joined a gang called the "8-Trey Gangster Crips".[3]

    Williams became the most recognized participant of L.A. riots due to the live news broadcast of his attack on Denny and his memorable nickname, which was repeated frequently in news media. By computer enhancement of the videotape, which revealed an identifying tattoo, Williams was identified as the man who had assaulted Denny with a brick.[4] Although the Denny beating received great publicity, Williams and his companions also assaulted and beat several Asian and Latino motorists who were passing through the area. Williams was charged with attempted murder, assault, and mayhem.[3]

    In 1993, Williams was convicted of mayhem and misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to 10 years. In 1997, Williams was released for good behavior, but in 2003, he received a life sentence for the 2000 murder of Grover Tinner, a drug dealer.[3] He was sentenced to a minimum of 46 years, and is currently incarcerated at Calipatria State Prison.[3]

    Antoine "Twan" Miller[edit]
    Antoine "Twan" Miller was a 19-year-old who lived with Damian "Football" Williams' family. Miller's mother was a drug addict, so as a child, Miller was sent to live with his grandmother. When he was 12, his grandmother killed his grandfather and was convicted of this murder, leaving Miller homeless. Miller had previously been arrested for joyriding. On February 1, 2004, at the age of 31, Miller was shot and killed in a Hollywood nightclub.[5]

    Henry Keith "Kiki" Watson[edit]
    Henry Keith "Kiki" Watson was a 27-year-old former U.S. Marine and an ex-convict who had served time for robbery. After his release from prison, he married, had children, and was working two jobs. According to Williams, Watson was known around the neighborhood as a "gentleman"[citation needed]. After he was freed from jail in 1993, he appeared on The Phil Donahue Show and apologized to Denny for the attacks. Later, he would serve three years in prison for a narcotics conviction. Fifteen years after the attacks, Watson said during an interview: "Nobody specifically sought out Reginald Denny to cause him any harm. We got caught up in the moment, just like everyone else."[6] As of 2007, Watson still lives in Los Angeles and operates his own limousine service.[7
