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.

WHAT?    

Plays a lot of golf for having arthritis? HUM... Oh, lawyers took him off of his meds. during the trial I bet so the wet, dried, shrunk leather glove w/swelled hands AND latex gloves would not fit. Didn't have to make him stop the meds. though, mine went in the garbage just from getting them wet from the snow. Boy I can remember the ringing in my ears with that one from the OJ trial. Wonder why the prosecution did not admit into evidence same brand/size -wet to dry and not wet at all with one of the trial lawyers hands? Or say *at least* OJ's meds. On them/or not during trial? Prosecution should have known better w/leather!!!!

Another classic racism in America. Just because he was acquitted murdering 2 white people, they want a pay back. I tell u what, when the truth comes out, he will be acquitted again. Stop rushing to judment, because he will be acquitted.

Pitiful. Just pitiful. You got away with a crime once but not this time. It's a different world OJ. EVERYONE has computers now, cell phones with cameras, juicey sites like TMZ. There's no place to hide anymore. You've pissed the world off more than a few times and now we've got you. I think it's time that justice system JUICED YOU. You're just hateful, violent, self-important trash. Aren't you even concerned as to how this will effect your children????? How about thinking of them for once. You took their mother from them. Now you're dragging them through your mud once again. Psychopathic loser.

If OJ goes to jail, he will be killed (unless he is kept from general population).
