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.

I'm afraid that the fact that the conversation was taped without his knowledge will be thrown out of court and he will be free again. God, I hope not.

so sick of you people    

I am so sick of you people. The last time I checked, O.J supposedly killed that gold digging slut and her boy toy by himself. Since none of you "GOOD CITIZENS" were there, none of you really know who the killer is. Why are you so frantic to fry O.J and not Robert Blake. He killed that poor woman in cold blood. And the biggest crook of them all is Papa Goldman. He is the QUEEN of all gold diggers.He's a grave robbing gold digger. I am not saying OJ is innocent. I don't know, I wasn't there. And since when do we care when crooks get robbed by crooks. They are no better. If everyone hates him so much, why are they all trying to profit from him. Zip is right about this world and the people in it. Some of you same sheet wearers have skeletons in your closets. And as for you "pretty STUPID white girl" the joke hasn't gotten to the pucnhline yet. " SISTAH" may get the last laugh after all.

I'm so glad the fool he really is has gone down at last. I can't beleive after killing his wife
and someone else, he was set free. His time has come to pay for all he has done bad. By the way, this means we can really have a party on his behalf that he's in jail right where he belonged all this time. Now this ia a celebration at last. Now, go get the money from where he has it and pay back the big bill that's on his ass.

Just like Al Capone, murder is NOT what you will be going to jail for, but for the honor of the people that you DID kill, hopefully you will not be able to "black football star" out of this one!Once trash, always TRASH. Some people just don't learn. Are you going to say that you were "looking for the killers" of Nicole and Ron? Good luck with that story.

OJ is an ignorant thug. With or without the recording, we all know that he lacks class, integrity and compassion. Perhaps this is all merely the harvest of his wrongs...
