Looks like our old friend O.J. Simpson can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The difference now is that this time there is proof and enough proof that could put Simpson away for some time. Simpson has been charged with half a dozen felonies in connection with an alleged armed robbery in Las Vegas. Simpson and five others allegedly burst into a room at the Palace Station Hotel & Casino last Thursday night and took sports memorabilia from a man at gunpoint.
Police reportedly have surveillance video from the hotel of the robbery, with four men wanted in connection with the crime still at large. If convicted, Simpson could face up to a century in prison and will be arraigned this morning. Of course O.J. is speaking out on the incident, stating that it was just a debate over the memorabilia, which was mostly of him and his career, and that no guns were involved. Hmmm, I guess we’ll see on that one, Juice. And what by chance are you going to say when a video shows otherwise? Maybe that you didn’t know the men that came in with you with the guns to confront the man and take the merchandise?
O.J. says the stuff in question, like video from his first wedding, a pic with him and former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, and his Hall of Fame certificate, was stolen from him and in the wrong hands. The Police in Vegas stated at this point it does not really matter who owned the merchandise, it was the matter of how Juice and his thugs tried to take it back that was in question. Juice said he didn’t call the police to help get back his stuff because he felt they were against him ever since he got off on killing his ex-wife Nicole and her pal, Ron Goldman. Gee, wonder why Juice?
“The police, since my trouble, have not worked out for me,” he said, noting that whenever he has called the police “It just becomes a story about O.J.” Goldman’s father Ron, who for years has been on Juice’s case, was in a rather happy mood when hearing about the charges Sunday. “He’s believed for years, decades, that he’s entitled to do anything he wants, and the legal system and society has basically agreed with him,” Goldman said. “This time, hopefully, he’ll get what he deserves. He’ll get jail time.”
O.J.’s book, “If I Did It,” which is technically in the hands of the Goldman’s since they own the rights by a court order, is the hottest seller around the US, as it’s number one on Amazon.com as well as Barnes and Noble.com. Maybe Juice can write another novel in jail after this latest incident.
