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.

Skank You, Y'all    



Dear VAL-
Compliment accepted.
And I also couldn't agree with you more about Oprah. You hit the proverbial nail on the head. She's a phony farce. Never liked her... never will.
Oprah & O.J. deserve eachother in my book!

Justice    

Its to bad that you can not get the death penalty for armed robbery, thats the only way simpson could get justice. He killed Nicole & Ron Goldman, then after he was acquitted he had the nerve to brag about it because he knew that he could not be re tried for the crimes. I hope he remembers that the time you spend on earth is short, but the time you spend in Heaven or Hell is for eternity, and simpson WILL NOT be going to the first place. Burn baby burn!!

4. 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!!!

Don't look now, but you're slowly being erased. Your soul is being ripped off by the vultures. Your personal information being sold , you're address, S.S. phone numbers,background,personal information (GOOGLE).Internet investigations, for hefty prices. O.J., today you tomorrow. This is the real identity ripoff. They even show criminals and all unwanted people how to reach your home address step by step. No one is safe. LA FEMME

Oh, geez. I can't believe that 11% of people who took that poll think no guns were drawn. I guess those are the morons that are going to be on the jury this time, too, eh? What do you people need to see that OJ is a friggin' criminal? You probably wouldn't even believe it if he came out and told you. Stupid friggin' morons.

Wow, an "Olympus digital voice recorder". What would have happened had it been a Toshiba one? Or a Sony?

You never know...

Zip #4 You really need to post on some political forum. This is an entertainment site. And what is more entertaining than seeing this maggot in jail (where he should have been for the past 13 years).

Ain't it lovely? The thug is on tape! Kinda like finding the glove on his property, huh? Lest we all forget, remember that although we all know he committed the murders, he was still walking free to commit this crime.

The interesting part will be watching how he pays for the acquittal this time...isn't he supposed to be broke or paying the Goldmans?

Finally! Hoisted by his own pitar (or something to that effect - Shakespeare (:-) ...
If he can go into a ballistic tirade over something like that, think what the two victims 13 years ago were subjected to when confronted by a raging maniac before their ultimate demise. Too bad there wasn't a tape on that one.
