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.

TMZ asked me to comment, as it asked you to comment!!! That's why they have a blog on their web site. Hello??? Rome (America) is burning...and yet, so many of you fools would rather eat, drink and make merry. But I'll remind you, that history repeats itself.

America has only been the leader of the world since it obtained, and used the nuclear bomb in 1945...now, 62 years later, China is within 2 and a half years of equaling the nuclear strength of the United States. After that point of critical mass, they will best us militarily in every way, shape and form imaginable.

And if that weren't bad enough...China is getting ready to takeover as the world's economic leader...and will crush the United States--and yet, you...and the mass media are worried about O.J. Simpson???!!!

With fools like you, America deserves to fail...and to fall. But don't say I didn't warn you...because I just did!!!

TMZ, get your facts straight ... his "friend" had the gun ... not OJ. Now his "friend" is a state witness and will surely turn on him. The fact remains ... OJ never had a gun. Everyone who has been interviewed has indicated that.

yeah Read the News, it would almost be better for him if he DID have the gun, because not having it makes him the, oh what's the word....RINGLEADER, the MASTERMIND - the little guy with the gun get's to turn state, tell what he knew and go free after a few months (maybe less) while the "big fish" catches all the MAJOR, FELONY charges.

Don't just read the news, Read the Laws.

There is a super volcano at Yellowstone Park capable of blowing up 600 square miles of America at any time, leaving behind a nuclear winter that can cover the skies of the whole world. Needless to say, if that happens, nobody here will be growing any crops!!! And that means, farm animals will die, and you won't be eating...neither will your relatives.

There is also the matter of the southern ice shelf. Half of it is in danger of breaking off thanks to Global Warming. Should that occure, within 6 and a half hours, all cities on the East Coast, save for cities west of the Appalachian Mountains, will be destroyed by a giant tidal wave...and the goverment won't have time to evacuate or warn millions of Americans...nor will they even try.

And yet, you are worried about O.J. Simpson???

Get your collective priorities straight!!!
