Beardsley: OJ Apologized to Me

9/15/2007 6:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has spoken exclusively to Alfred Beardsley, the man who was allegedly robbed at gunpoint by OJ and members of his crew.

Alfred states that OJ apologized to him several hours ago, and says OJ feels as if the whole situation has been blown out of proportion. He also says OJ said he felt bad, and that it wasn't supposed to happen that way.

OJ then went on.


According to Beardsley, Simpson says that police advised him to "work it out amongst themselves" in order to resolve the property issue. Beardsley says the cops have not contacted him since the event. A police report has been filed in the incident.

Mr. Beardsley also said that he and OJ have known each other for years and that, "they fight like brothers." Beardsley feels as though the tip OJ received from another memorabilia dealer was to "set up" the situation that unfolded in the Palace Station Hotel.

Alfred tells TMZ that Simpson stormed the room Thursday night, after being told by another memorabilia dealer that Beardsley had personal items of his, including childhood photos and the infamous suit worn by OJ the day he was acquitted of murder. Those personal items are what OJ wanted back the most as they contained photographs and other mementos of close members of his family including his mother.

Aside from the fact that both these guys are clearly not telling the whole story; since when does anyone get to storm into a room of any sort, with or without guns, remove property force someone to turn over their cell phone, 'rough' people up and not be arrested the very minute they are identified and located?

John Gotti would be proud of OJ- the Teflon has been passed on from murderous thief to another.

It SEEMS like Beardsley is BACK PEDDLING now. I can't even imagine a police department in the ENTIRE world would tell a SUSPECT to "work it out" with the victim. You know what I think? I think OJ & Beardsley set this whole thing up to take AWAY from the Goldman's book coming out. This murderer has some brass ones. And, if what people are saying is true about Juror #5 in the Spector case, that justice WORKED in the OJ trial, then OJ may have a new friend soon when the SKANK Spector walks. OJ can give him tips on how to hide money so the Clarkson faily gets nothing, because as sure as $hit, Spector WILL lose on the civil suit.

PEOPLE! WE CREATE THESE MONSTERS. WE GOTTA STOP WITH THE HERO WORSHIP ALREADY!!!

I have 3 boys and they fight like brothers. They have never pulled a gun on each other to take something from the other and if they did you'd better believe the police would be involved to "work it out". I can't believe the police told them to work it out. WTF?! Since when did it become okay to take something from another person at gunpoint? I guess that since OJ is above the law though that he can just waltz in wherever he wants and do whatever he wants. This is pathetic!!! He's going to cross the wrong person one of these days and get his own.

I'm confused. How did that guy get OJ's personal pictures and clothes? Was OJ selling them in the past? Can anyone explain what's going on?

The only way cops would tell someone to work it out is if NO weapons are involved. How the heck did this story get sblown up the way it did?

This was a set up by that Goldman character. A man that reflects his religion by showing that you can make money off his son's murder. That fact that the disgusting book that exploiates the murder of his son that he quickly retracted his condemtion of the book book as soon as he relized thta he could make some money on it, no matter what the content of that book represent.

Goldman should be ashamed of himself.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Hhmmmmmm? Publicity on a book release day? Possible civil discussions? Possible dropping of charges? Angry quasi-fraternal feelings? Interesting.
Still wondering if gun play is a normal part of this relationship. Sounds like something only OJ, in his twisted skull, could have come up with. Who knows now.
Also sounds like someone forgot their brains in their other set of pants on that day.
