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.

OJ's weapon of choice is a knife, not a gun.

82 -- It remains in modern usage in the phrase to be hoist by one's own petard, which means to be harmed by one's own plan to harm someone else. Shakespeare used the proverbial phrase in Hamlet.

84. Who's dumber, Michael Vick or OJ?

Don't even put Vick in the same sentance with OJ. OJ took HUMAN lives not a couple of dogs. It was wrong but HUMANS rank way ahead of animals.

Use a newswire instead of one channel on your TV set!

TMZ, if you're going to do the transcript with the audio, please do it right.

OJ said, "I always thought you WAS a straight shooter." You typed "were."

Let's not help him with his inability to use a noun and verb correctly. I know, I know. You must have gotten distracted by the number of times he swore.

Hey #4. If your big concern is the REAL cruel WORLD why are you even reading TMZ?
Go save the world
and let TMZ fans enjoy our comment section without the ravings of a jacka$$ like you.

The OJ story is a great one to follow...he will hopefully get major jail time now.

We can probably guess what OJ yelled at Rockingham Road all those years ago on the night he savagely killed his ex-wife and Ron Goldman....
Just substitute the word 'wife' for 'stuff' in all his latest rantings on the tape.
Now all the moronic OJ lovers can see what hatred and filth this guy is made of.

just hope that there are no laws in Nevada that will have the judge throw out the tape evidence if there is a trial

laws against taping people without their knowledge or consent

some states have laws like that regarding phone conversatons--wonder if any states have laws regarding taping in person/in secret in a group of people?

sure hope not--at times like this I wish I had more legal knowledge
even Jeffrey Toobin on CNN said he was going to have to brush up on Neveda law to better comment on all of this-too bad there isn't the same law in each state

would hate to see him "skate" because of something like that
