Did OJ Rob a Guy?

Allegations of Guns Drawn

9/14/2007 12:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


OJSources say OJ Simpson and five other men barged into a hotel room last night, and took various memorabilia once owned by Simpson -- at gunpoint!

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 them with 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 editions of Simpson's book, "I Want to Tell You."

Beardsley told TMZ he was uneasy about the arranged meeting and did not have the suit in the room when the six men entered.

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.

Cops tell us Simpson was questioned but not placed in custody. There is an active robbery investigation underway.

Seriously    

If this is true, why the HELL is he walking? He told his lawyer he could not show for court in Florida, because he had business in Vegas? This guy is a COMPLETE CRIMINAL!!!! Will we wait until he kills someone else? This infuriates me.

I don't understand why they didn't arrest him when they brought him in for questioning. The POS can leave any time he wants. I hope he rots in jail for this.

Standards are badly needed.    

Now, javon, it's not right to bring race into this. A robbery is a robbery, dear, and you know that the Lord is color blind. I'll rap your knuckles with my yardstick, or I'll make you clean the blackboards.

Amazing    

Let's not make this a black and white thing. If OJ were white he's still be a killer!
It's the jury that should be locked up along with him.

If he broke into the hotel room or was allowed in, as he is told police, he is still in participation with premeditated and conspiracy to commit robbery with a deadly weapon. Get out of VEGAS , you idiot....

Dang! If he did this, he's the biggest idiot in history! Had he ever heard of "lay low"? I know after that trial years ago, you wouldn't hear from me hardly ever!

Well, if he did the murders (which I think he did), maybe this is his payback right now.

He's Boring now    

Babeho: The African American Community cant even rally to stop the killing they have imposed on each other in Philadelphia. Thus the call today by the Chief of Police of that city for 10,000 Black Men to come together to patrol the streets and try and "counsel" young Blacks out of killing one another.

How the heck are they going to come to rally behind one OJ Simpson? And why on earth would they or anyone for that matter. Tell you what, you go lead the Charge, leave your contact information for all interested parties to come see you and sign up.

Rally for OJ

First of all, to all the Africian Americans. Why would you back him. He hates being black. Or else he would stay with his color. He dates white women, he kills white women. He is the lowest of low. And he is getting his, he can't go to eat dinner without cameras or comments. So it doesn't matter if he got away with murder this time, he'll do it again and the law and public won't be so stupid next time. Trust me, he is getting his. If you travel down a dark road, you hit obsticles. He has lots.
