Clips From Last night: Arsenio Hall on Rodney King; Mark O'Mara on the jailhouse phone calls between George Zimmerman and his wife

Tuesday Arsenio Hall, television personality and the latest winner of "Celebrity Apprentice", stopped by "Piers Morgan Tonight" to announce his return to late night television. His new show will air next year.

Before his announcement, Hall spoke with Piers Morgan about the the recent death of Rodney King who's beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was the catalyst for a string of riots in the city after the police officers involved in the beating were acquitted. "I feel bad for Rodney," said Hall. "The whole back half of his life was kind of sad."

"This was a good guy," said Hall in response to the backlash towards King in his later life. "This is a guy who actually I've heard apologize to the people and happy that people forgave him for what he did. And this is a guy who got beat, you know. He was a sweet guy. He had a good heart."

Mark O'Mara, the defense attorney for accused killer George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case also spoke to Morgan on Tuesday and discussed the transcripts of the recently released jailhouse phone calls between Zimmerman and his wife. "There's no question that they were talking in this sort of simplistic kind of code," said O'Mara regarding Zimmerman and his wife's efforts to hide the truth about their finances. O'Mara added, "I would ask the question, who are they hiding the truth from?"

"The reality is, in those 30 hours of tapes, 154 phone calls, there's not one phone call that evidences their intent to deceive the judge," argued O'Mara. "Now, granted, they do not tell the judge the absolute truth. But if you listen to the tapes, there's not one tape there that suggests anything."

    I think they were trying to hide the money to avoid paying taxes to the federal government, and the judge also to get a lesser bond, wife says we do not have any money prior to the day before transfered money into different accounts. They are dis honest people. Zimmerman chuckles when he say hoodie. I do not find that amusing, when a life was taken. No matter what way Zimmermans attorney express it was still dis honest.

    I believe O'Mara is as big a liar (and as arrogant) as the Zimmermans. In the 4/17 call, Shellie told George that Ken (the person moving the $ from the PayPal, aka Peter Pan, account was meeting with O'Mara. Have no idea who this Ken is, but can't imagine they didn't talk about the website and PayPal account. Plus, I believe O'mara lied about the passsport too.I
