OJ Simpson, First Accused of Murder, Now an Armed Robber … Did Mark Fuhrman Plant this Evidence Too?
On the very day that the book “IF”, no … “I Did It” hit the book shelves and is a #1 best seller on Amazon, OJ Simpson once again find himself in trouble. The Goldman family defends the books release as a way of punishing OJ Simpson in their 11 year legal battle with him. Now for the latest in the OJ Simpson saga … “What happens to OJ in Vegas, will be broadcast to the free world”. If there is trouble to be found, OJ will some how seem to find it, then deny he had any responsibility in any of it. However, the OJ Simpson time-line of run ins with the law is quite the laundry list of events. This time OJ Simpson is a suspect in an armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel room.
O.J. Simpson says he only went into a casino hotel room to retrieve memorabilia that he felt was stolen from him. But police are investigating it as an armed robbery and named the fallen football star as a suspect Friday in yet another surprising chapter to his legal saga.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Simpson insisted there were no guns involved and he only went to the room at the Palace Station casino to retrieve stolen mementos that included his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture of the running back with J. Edgar Hoover. “It’s stolen stuff that’s mine. Nobody was roughed up,” Simpson told the AP. Las Vegas Metro Police Capt. James Dillon said the confrontation was reported as an armed robbery involving guns. But he said no weapons had been recovered and stressed that the investigation was in its “infancy.”
OJ Simpson finds out the hard way that what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas. Next thing he will be suing the Las Vegas for a false promotion ad campaign.
Mr. Simpson denied that any crime had taken place. Instead, he told The Associated Press, he and some people he had met at a cocktail party staged a “sting operation” on Thursday night intended to retrieve memorabilia, including Mr. Simpson’s Hall of Fame certificate, from a dealer he said had stolen it.
Welcome to the not so wonderful world of the OJ Simpson circus saga. Alfred Beardsley now wants to drop charges and have everything just go away. However, it may be too late for that as the genie is out of the bottle. Beardsley may have thought about this entire thing prior to his calling 911.
LAS VEGAS (AP) – minuteworld 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?” (Breitbart)
UPDATE II: BEARDSLEY SPEAKS TO DRUDGE REPORT [1:55am EDT]:
“I thought my conversation with Linda Deutsch [AP reporter] was off the record. It was a casual conversation. I have been ‘on O.J.’s side’ involving his past problems. But this is an entirely different incident. I called 911. If charges are pressed, I have an obligation to go to court. Period.” Developing…
