OJ Simpson is being investigated by the Las Vegas police in connection to a break-in at a hotel room in the Palace Station Casino. Sources say OJ and several other men enter the hotel room of Alfred Beardsley, a memorabilia dealer, and took many memorabilia once owned by Simpson at gunpoint.
Beardsley tells TMZ he had arranged to meet with someone last night who was interested in buying the suit and other Simpson memorabilia. Beardsley says the man was actually a member of Simpson’s crew. He says the men stormed the room, two of them with guns drawn.
Beardsley says the men claimed to be police officers. OJ and others demanded that Beardsley and two other men surrender their cell phones. Beardsley refused to do so. Beardsley says the group stole every piece of memorabilia in the room, including items signed by Joe Montana. They also took a case of never-released leather editions of Simpson’s book, “I Want to Tell You.”
What did OJ have to say about this whole situation? He told the AP he was conducting a sting operation. OJ must still think he’s filming another Naked Gun movie.
