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.

Interesting! Simpson killed two people and the whole country is going bonkers because he supposedly was involved in getting back some of his possessions, which were probably taken from him illegally anyway. Meanwhile, neo-nazi Bush has killed almost a million followers of Islam and there's hardly a whimper from the compliant Americans. How sad!

If the courts had done their job and convicted this criminal we could all rest a bit easier. US courts are nothing more than a place to pay cash after committing heinous crimes. If you can afford to line enough pockets here in the good ol USA you don't go to jail.

Comment #49 "I'm a non-racist tighter" is the FUNNIEST comment I have ever read...and I'm a bit of a "comment junkie" as well as an "OJ junie." I'm still laughing. :-0

This event is Karma he will get the justice he did not get in killing his wife and Ron Goldman. The criminal justice system has not forgotten him and this stupidity will get him what he deserved for the killings not this stupid incident. He thinks he is still in the movies playing a cop with a gun.

If you are a friend of O.J. then get him to read this. O.J. you need very professional spiritual counseling, copy these proverbs written by William Rock Honey of Chattanooga Tenn. e-mail www.themightygod101@yahoo.com and
read them every day to make sure this never happens again.
Proverb: Alcohol Abuse, Illegal Drugs and Anger will cost you more than you want to pay!
Proverb: A silent mouth gathers no trouble!
Proverb: Do a good and bad balance sheet before you act!
These proverbs have changed and saved many a life and just might have saved O.J. the millions of dollars and his home had he learned them and followed them. This is the real help O.J. needs, so he can then change his life. The Ultimate God, which is The Creator of us all. You are an extension of God and should act like God is watching you, because he is. God has a camera on us, there is no escape!
