    O.J. Simpson suspect in break in

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,296758,00.html


    Investigators questioned O.J. Simpson and named him a suspect Friday in a break-in at a casino hotel room involving sports memorabilia.
    The break-in was reported at the Palace Station casino late Thursday night, police spokesman Jose Montoya said. He said investigators determined the break-in involved sports collectibles.
    "When they talked to him, Simpson made the comment that be believed the memorabilia was his," Montoya said. "We're getting conflicting stories from the two sides."
    Simpson was released after he and several associates were questioned, but he is considered a suspect in the case, Montoya said. He is believed to be in Las Vegas.
    "We don't believe he's going anywhere," he said.


    Simpson has not been arrested. Investigators in the casino case planned to give their report to prosecutors Friday, Montoya said. The district attorney's office will decide whether to pursue charges.
    Hotel sources told TMZ that Simpson was spotted in the hotel Thursday night, and that he did not have a room booked for himself.
    Sources also told TMZ that Simpson and five other men barged into a Palace Station hotel room last night around 7:15 p.m. and at gunpoint took various memorabilia once owned by Simpson.
    Alfred Beardsley, a memorabilia dealer, had secured various items once owned by Simpson. Beardsley has said he had the suit Simpson wore the day he was acquitted of murder.
    Beardsley told TMZ he had arranged to meet with someone Thursday 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 them had guns drawn.
    Beardsley says the men claimed to be police officers. Simpson 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 editions of Simpson's book, "I Want to Tell You."
    Beardsley said he made a 911 call, and cops subsequently obtained a search warrant for the room. CSI investigators took Beardsley's phone and DNA samples and photos of his body. Beardsley said one of the guys roughed him up.
    The Heisman Trophy winner, ex-NFL star and actor had been scheduled to give a deposition Friday in Miami in a bankruptcy case involving his eldest daughter. But it was rescheduled because Simpson had told attorneys that he would be out of town.




    This is only part of the above link. The rest went on a tangent about his book, but I'm not giving that thing any publicity

    That's weird. Why didn't he just go to the cops? Or to an attorney? Doesn't he realize that what he did is against the law, no matter what the provocation? The man's slipping.

    And in a case of a massive flip flop of position...

    Simpson accuser now 'on O.J.'s side'

    By KATHLEEN HENNESSEY and LINDA DEUTSCH, Associated Press Writers 35 minutes ago

    LAS VEGAS - A sports memorabilia collector who accused O.J. Simpson of armed robbery said Saturday that he was "on O.J.'s side" and wants the case dropped.

    "I want this thing to go away. I have health problems," said Alfred Beardsley, the collector who told police on Thursday that Simpson and several other men stormed a Las Vegas hotel room and stole memorabilia at gunpoint.
    Beardsley, of Burbank, Calif., told The Associated Press he is not interested in pursuing the case.
    "I have no desire to fly back and forth to Las Vegas to testify," he said. "How are they going to have a witness who's on O.J.'s side?"
    Beardsley said he called police only because the items were valuable and if he had not reported them as stolen he would be "held accountable for all the stuff." Beardsley said Friday that Simpson had called him to apologize.
    Lt. Clint Nichols said later Saturday that Beardsley had not formally withdrawn his complaint and that another collector in the room, Bruce Fromong, had not indicated that he wants to drop the complaint.
    Earlier, Las Vegas police said they were questioning one of the three or four men who were thought to have accompanied Simpson to the hotel room. No arrests had been made and police were still trying to determine what took place before Simpson left the room with memorabilia he says was stolen from him, Nichols said. Police think a weapon was involved and want to review hotel surveillance tapes.
    Simpson told The Associated Press on Saturday that he did he did not even consider calling the police to help reclaim personal items he believed were stolen from him, because he has found the police unresponsive when he needed help ever since his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were killed in 1994.
    "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."
    "I'm at the point where I don't rely on the police and this is not a police issue anyway," he said, expressing hope that it will soon be resolved.
    Simpson, 60, said he was just trying to retrieve memorabilia, particularly photos of his wife and children. There were no guns and no break-in, he said.
    As police try to determine what happened in the hotel room, they must unravel the contorted relationships between the erstwhile athlete and a cadre of collectors that has profited from his infamy since the slayings of his ex-wife and Goldman. He was acquitted of murder in 1995, but was found liable for their deaths in a civil case.
    Fromong considered Simpson a close friend. Beardsley had collected Simpson items for years.
    On Saturday, Simpson declared: "None of these guys are friends of mine."
    Attempts by the AP to reach Fromong on Saturday were unsuccessful.
    Simpson, who lives in Miami, said he expected to find the stolen items when he went to an arranged meeting Thursday.
    The man who arranged the meeting, according to Simpson, was another man who makes a living on the fringes of the celebrity.
    Thomas Riccio, a well-known memorabilia dealer, made headlines when his auction house, Corona, Calif.-based Universal Rarities, handled the eBay auction of Anna Nichole Smith's handwritten diaries.
    Simpson said Riccio called him several weeks ago to inform him that people "have a lot of your stuff and they don't want anyone to know they are selling it," Simpson said.
    Along with the personal photos, Simpson expected to find one item in particular: the suit he was wearing when he was acquitted of murder.
    It's not clear where they got the suit, but Beardsley, a former real estate agent and longtime Simpson collector, and Fromong had been trying to sell it for several months. They'd recently tried eBay and the celebrity gossip Web site TMZ.com.
    Simpson said Beardsley and Fromong were attempting to profit off personal items including the wedding video from his first marriage.
    In an interview with TMZ.com, Beardsley noted that during the alleged robbery in the hotel room Simpson appeared surprised the pair were the ones selling the items.
    "Simpson was saying that 'I liked you, I thought you were a good guy,'" Beardsley said.
    Simpson accused Mike Gilbert, a one-time associate, of stealing the items from him. He said he believes Gilbert stole items from a storage locker once held in Simpson's mother's name.
    Attempts to reach Gilbert by phone were unsuccessful.
    As Simpson's licensing agent in the late 1990s, Gilbert admitted snatching Simpson's Heisman Trophy and other items from his client's Brentwood home as payment for money he said was owed to him. He later turned the items over to authorities, save the trophy's nameplate.
    Gilbert swore he'd go to jail before turning the nameplate over to the Goldman family, which was trying to collect on the $33.5 million civil judgment it won against Simpson. Gilbert later surrendered it under court order.
    As questions swirled around the curious cast of characters and their mysterious meeting, media scrutiny and public interest that has dogged the fallen athlete was in full swing.
    By Saturday afternoon, Simpson's new book, "If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer," was the top seller on Amazon.com
    None of the men will profit from the book's sales. After a deal for Simpson to publish it fell through, a federal bankruptcy judge awarded the book's rights to the Goldman family.

    Smile O.J. Finally Busted

    O.J. Simpson Arrested in Vegas Robbery
    By RYAN NAKASHIMA, Associated Press Writer
    2 hours ago

    LAS VEGAS - O.J. Simpson was arrested Sunday and faces multiple felony charges in an alleged armed robbery of collectors involving the former football great's sports memorabilia, authorities said.

    Simpson was arrested shortly after 11 a.m., Capt. James Dillon said.

    Prosecutors were planning to charge Simpson with two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and coercion, said Clark County District Attorney David Roger.

    A conviction on the most serious charge, robbery with use of a deadly weapon, could bring a sentence of three to 35 years for each count, he said.

    "He is facing a lot of time," Roger said.

    Simpson was being held at Las Vegas police offices pending the arrival of his lawyer, who was expected later Sunday, Dillon said.

    "He was very cooperative, there were no issues," Dillon said.

    At least one other person has been arrested and police said Sunday that as many as six people could be arrested in connection with the alleged armed robbery that occurred in a room inside the Palace Station casino-hotel on Thursday.

    Simpson, 60, has said he and other people with him were retrieving items that belonged to him. Simpson has said there were no guns involved and that he went to the room at the casino only to get stolen mementos that included his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture of the running back with J. Edgar Hoover.

    Simpson told The Associated Press on Saturday that he did not call the police to help reclaim the items because he has found the police unresponsive to him ever since his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were killed in 1994.

    "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."

    The Heisman Trophy winner, ex-NFL star and actor lives near Miami and has been a tabloid staple since his ex-wife and Goldman were killed in 1994. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges, but a jury later held him liable for the killings in a wrongful death lawsuit.

    Police said two firearms and other evidence were seized at a private residence early Sunday.

    Walter Alexander, 46, of Arizona, was arrested Saturday night on two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary with a deadly weapon.

    He was released without bail on Saturday night, Dillon said.

    Besides the two firearms, police said they seized other evidence during early morning searches of two residences, Lt. Clint Nichols said.

    "It was evidence of a crime that was committed," Nichols said. "And I believe we recovered some clothing that the individual was wearing in the commission of the robbery."

    Simpson said auction house owner Tom Riccio called him several weeks ago to say some collectors were selling some of his items. Riccio set up a meeting with collectors under the guise that he had a private collector interested in buying Simpson's items.

    Simpson said he was accompanied by several men he met at a wedding cocktail party, and they took the collectibles.

    Alfred Beardsley, one of the sports memorabilia collectors involved in the alleged robbery, has said he wants the case dropped and that he's "on O.J.'s side."

    Holy Christ! He's going to do it again!
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    I heard this on Rush Limbaugh as a parody as OJ was about to get arrested.

    OJ: Whats the problem, officer?

    Officer: Taking you to jail, you should have gone there the first time.

    OJ: Where's my Lawyer, where's Johnny Cochran.

    Officer: Dead.

    OJ: Oh no, what am I going to do now?

    Sequel: If I had done it -- Part 2

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
