According to TMZ, one of the most controversial personalities in the history of America and professional football Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson, who has just been released from a prison in Nevada this October after being sentenced for armed robbery and assault, has been kicked out of a Las Vegas casino and even banned for life for being belligerent.
At The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Simpson was allegedly intoxicated and he became disruptive. TMZ stated that Simpson ‘was angry at hotel staff, and glasses broke at the bar'. Casino security escorted him out of the premises and therefore was banned for life from the property.
Simpson's lawyer Malcolm LaVergne said to the Associated Press that his client has indeed been banned, however Simpson was not intoxicated nor belligerent at that time. He also added that the Cosmopolitan gave no valid reason for the ban.
Since he has been released from prison, Simpson has reportedly been frequenting bars and other social events in Las Vegas.
It isn't clear if the incident shall affect his parole standing in any way. LaVergne said Simpson met up with his parole officer, who verified that Simpson was not under the influence of any illegal substances, and later he passed drug and alcohol tests.
Recently, TMZ has taken a video of Las Vegas hotel and casino tycoon Steve Wynn regarding the incident. When asked if Simpson would be allowed in his casinos again, Wynn said, "He's too much excitement for us."
O.J. Simpson, now 70 years old, has just become a free man after nine years behind bars. He was sentenced to prison for armed robbery and assault with a weapon in an ill-fated bid to retrieve memorabilia. He was scheduled to be released from prison on October 1, 2017, and he was set free shortly after midnight on that date. Currently, he's living in a gated community in Las Vegas.
Yes this guy is a lot of trouble, almost my age but I do not have such problems and i go eith my friends to our local casino every week, but no problems with alcohol or something else, no glasses broken not times casino security had to take us out from casino. This guy has to learn how to be normal person
We have seen in the past that casinos do no tolerate such behavior from anyone. They are even strict to dress code, and they have denied famous people entrance for this reason. It is a good thing though to see that rules apply the same to all the visitors.
Lol, what a funny news After his time in the prison, he need girls and games Now he was banned in a casino in LA.. But perhaps he can gambling in a casino in Macau, or must play online Or perhaps OS can play live charity games.
OJ is a filthy murderer, the blood was on his socks and he was trying to escape the police in his car. So people, don't just continue to idolize any sports person before you know sure he/she is a ahole or not. Mister Simpson had a lot of fans before this happens. So that means there is a lot of sheep who just like people because they are famous, beeeeeh. I hope OJ rots in a prison, he doesn't deserve to walk free on the streets.
This OJ Simpson has a mental problem. I do not know he is a criminal or not but his behavior is of an aggressive vagabond. I understand his life has been overturned but it is not a motive to provoke only scandals. I think he's a dangerous man which has to be kept under observation by police.
OJ Simpson is certainly a murderer and was acquitted only because the jury were with him of the same color ... I understand this was the first manifestation of tolerance in America .... it seems to me that he should have been in prison for life .... and now he left the prison and immediately got into a scandal
Posted by kiking: Sooner or later he will back right where he belong , JAIL .
this man certainly deserves to be put on another prison for a period maybe his mind will come to his head. If this is a civilized behavior then I'm a professional poker player. You realize I'm kidding and this man is dangerous. It is a shame to provoke scandal when nobody is looking for a fight with you.
well what do you know... dude has is in his mind- he cannot control himself, his aggression and it really doesn't matter how old he is, nothing changes its in his blood. but hey, at least these sort of people create a few headlines and give other people sth to talk about
I heard nightclubs or casinos in big cities like New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami, etc., have numerous patrons who can easily drop US$500,000 or more in one night. What's O.J. Simpson's actual net worth? Is he still wealthy?
