You’ve probably seen this OJ coverage a thousand times already, so long story short (“short” used loosely):
Sources say OJ Simpson and five other men barged into a hotel room last night, and at gunpoint, took various memorabilia once owned by Simpson.
It happened at the Palace Station Hotel last night at around 7:15. Alfred Beardsley, a memorabilia dealer, had secured various items once owned by Simpson. Beardsley has said he had the suit OJ wore the day he was acquitted of murder.
Beardsley tells TMZ he had arranged to meet with someone last night who was interested in buying the suit and other Simpson memorabilia. Beardsley says the man was actually a member of Simpson’s crew. He says the men stormed the room, two of had guns drawn.
Beardsley says the men claimed to be police officers. OJ and others demanded that Beardsley and two other men surrender their cell phones. Beardsley refused to do so. Beardsley says the group stole every piece of memorabilia in the room, including items signed by Joe Montana. They also took a case of never-released leather books of Simpson’s book, “I Want to Tell You.”
Beardsley says he made a 911 call, and cops subsequently obtained a search warrant for the room. CSI investigators took Beardsley’s phone and took DNA samples and photos of his body. Beardsley says one of the guys roughed him up.”
Simpson told The Associated Press auction house owner Tom Riccio called him several weeks ago to say some collectors “have a lot of your stuff and they don’t want anyone to know they are selling it.”
Simpson, who was in Las Vegas for a friend’s wedding, said he arranged to meet Riccio at the hotel and conducted a “sting operation.”
“Everybody knows this is stolen stuff,” Simpson said. “Not only wasn’t there a break-in, but Riccio came to the lobby and escorted us up to the room. In any event, it’s stolen stuff that’s mine. Nobody was roughed up.”
In my new book entitled, “Women Don’t Need Heads” I go into great detail about how it’s okay to saw a woman’s head off in her front yard and how you should kill any man who tries to return glasses to said woman since she doesn’t need glasses, because she doesn’t have a head attached to her body anymore. Buy my book, bitches.
Since I love you, and hate murderous piles of shit like OJ Simpson who visit my city and make clown-like attempts at vigilante justice, I recorded the Metro news conference for you (parts 2 and 3 after the jump).
