OJ SIMPSON MIGHT BE FACING SOME JAIL TIME
On Friday, TMZ broke a story involving O.J. “if I DID IT” Simpson and 4 men, who had apparently broken into a Las Vegas hotel and robbed a guy at gun point. Alfred Beardsley, a memorabilia dealer, had secured various items once owned by Simpson. Beardsley tells TMZ he had arranged to meet with someone last night who was interested in buying a suit and other Simpson memorabilia. Beardsley says the man was actually a member of Simpsonâ€™s crew. He says the men stormed the room, two of them had guns drawn.
Then later in the day, TMZ cleared everything up saying that it wasn’t him. We’ve all heard that story! Haha… He told The Associated Press that a sports memorabilia dealer called him up a few 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 says he’s in Vegas for a friend’s wedding, said he arranged to meet the dealer at the Palace Station hotel and conducted a sting operation. “Everybody knows this is stolen stuff,” Simpson told the wire service. “Not only wasn’t there a break-in, but [the dealer] 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.”
Now, today, September 16, 2007, the same site, TMZ of course has an update on the situation! If you check our their site right this second, you’ll see that their whole ENTIRE front page (15 posts) is dedicated to the O.J. Simpson story. No lie! Anyhow, he was arrested in Vegas earlier today (around 1 PM EST), and according to CNN, he is likely to be charged on three counts.
We’ll keep you posted!! Oh, by the way … I apologize for the dry spell last week. My offline life has been beyond hectic. But I’m back … for good. We’re going to be updating so much this week, it’s going to be hard to keep up haha. Just watch ;-)
