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 cant believe there are some who would actually defend OJ who arent getting paid??

I think those people are racist, he's black so he gets a pass??

You all are making the black experience in America a mute point with your blindness and obedience to Black leaders who like this sort of thing, and profit from it !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go to your local Adult Entertainment shop and buy one of those falic shapped soap-on-a-rope novelties. Mail it to OJ c/o the jail/jails he is at. That should be a big hit with him and his new found friends in prison. Maybe he will clean up!

Fed up with OJ    

I certainly hope justice is finally served and he goes to prison for a long time. No, I am not caucasian. I am an african-american that is appalled by is behavior in the past years, especially his recent book. He definitely had something to do with the murders. He's such a smug bastard. I hope he pays for flaunting his nose at the law.

Well, Well, Well....
There is an old syaing......"If it looks like a Duck, Walks Like a Duck, Quacks Like a Duck, Smells like a Duck? Chances are? It's a Duck!!!".....hopefully this will be the event that puts this low life douche bag away for a good 20 to 30 years! (Then again...the good Citizens of this Country will then have to suffer through all those idiots proclaiming "OJ is innocent!" and "Free OJ!"...which would be good for a laugh I suppose)

THUG !!! That is what he is and has always been behind closed doors. If someone has your stuff that you BELIEVE to be stolen then call the cops first.. but no OJ pulled the classic OJ.

I'm LOVING it that he is on audio , what a moron!
