O.J.'s Alleged Robbery

Caught on Tape!

9/17/2007 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

**WARNING: This audio contains graphic content. Listener discretion is advised.**

TMZ has obtained an audio tape of O.J. Simpson's confrontation with a sports memorabilia dealer that led to his arrest on felony robbery charges. In it, you hear someone say, "You against the motherf*****g wall."
Click to play!
The tape was recorded by Thomas Riccio, who co-owns the auction house Universal Rarities. Riccio met up with Simpson just before the confrontation at the Palace Station Casino on Thursday night.

We're told Riccio was on hand to help Simpson prove certain memorabilia being auctioned by Alfred Beardsley was ill-gotten. Riccio says he believed Simpson was going to confront Beardsley in the hotel room to give him an ultimatum -- either hand over the goods or Simpson would call the cops.

Riccio turned his Olympus digital voice recorder on before the group entered the room -- a group that included Simpson and four other men. Almost immediately, Simpson went wild, hurling profanities at Beardsley and another memorabilia dealer, Bruce Fromong.

The confrontation lasts six minutes. It is graphic and telling. Simpson is clearly the ringleader. Simpson repeatedly says, "Think you can steal my s**t and sell it?"

To hear much more of the confrontation, watch TMZ TV tonight.

We're told Riccio also recorded the police interview with Beardsley and Fromong. Riccio also claims he has audio of Beardsley and Fromong conceding they didn't have a right to the memorabilia. Riccio also says he has audio of Bruce Fromong saying he helped Simpson hide money in offshore accounts.

And there's this: Riccio's partner, Jeff Woolf, says Simpson left a message on Riccio's cellphone trying to convince him that there was no gun involved in the robbery.

This is all unimportant. We have thousands of nukes aimed at us...and thousands of nukes aimed at others. People are dying of AIDS. 12 American Children die of starvation each week...and we are the richiest country in the world??

There is a war going on right now. Hundreds of innocent Iraqis have died. American Troops are killing, and being killed. So-called terrorists are trying to kill us!!! Cuban leader Fidel Castro is claiming that a missile hit The Pentagon on 911, and not a plane...and that we have been duped about 911. Yet more proof that 911 was an inside job!!! Do a web search on Project Northwoods aka Operation Northwoods and witness the amazing similarities. And now, Alan Greenspan says in his new book that we attacked Iraq for oil, nothing else.

The Housing Market is crashing!!! Millions of Americans may lose their houses!!! Thousands of Americans, especially children, come up missing each year...and many are never seen again...and their kidnappers, and or, murderers never found or identified!!! Over one hundred serial killers are roaming the country at any given time according to the FBI. There is genecide in Darfur (The Sudan)!!! Global Warming is threatening a mass extinction level event that can wipe-out humanity!!! And yet...despite all this, O.J. Simpson is more important to the media than all of these stories clear and present dangers, and concerns???!!! The whole human race is suffering from mental illness if people can't see how insane this is!!!

No wonder why the human race is headed right down the damn sewer!!!

Oh no, I'm sure there weren't guns involved..... I'm sure that the occupants of the room willingly lined up against the wall and let OJ walk out with all their stuff.....

BTW, OJ? You don't own anything- you still owe $30M.....

Bet Goldman is bumming over this- no way OJ doesn't die in prison now........

Skank You, Y'all    


O.J. you egomaniacal, mendacious, slithering, arrogant, womanizing
murderous slime bag... I hope you rot in Hell. And jail.
You deserve EXACTLY what's coming to you. Ha. So glad to hear about you getting
caught! Just wish they didn't include your pictures. The sight of you makes me want to projectile vomit.

How much crack did you smoke before that photo? Well I'm sure you'll be seein' a lot
