Why Was OJ Simpson Just Banned From a Las Vegas Hotel?

Adjust Comment Print

Simpson, 70, reportedly got drunk and was being disruptive to other Cosmopolitan Hotel guests at the Clique bar.

If you thought Simpson would live a quiet life after spending time in prison - he asked for privacy as he was released, which is kind of humorous given the latest news - then you were probably asking for a little too much.

Simpson will be on parole for the next five years after being convicted of breaking into the Las Vegas hotel room of a sports memorabilia dealer in 2007.

Staffers at the hotel told the website Simpson - who has been hitting up bars since his release from prison last month after serving nine years - broke glasses at the Clique bar inside the luxury hotel and casino beginning at about midnight. When security showed up, the ex-NFL star calmed down and became cooperative, the New York Post reports.

LaVergne denied that Simpson had been intoxicated while at the venue, on the Las Vegas Strip.

According to Simpson's attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, Simpson said all allegations of an altercation at The Cosmopolitan are false.

Laying low isn't really in Simpson's nature. Listen, I don't blame him.

The recently released ex-NFL star was cordial to security, but he has since been permanently banned from the hotel, sources claimed.

The former actor was acquitted of the double-murder of his ex-girlfriend Nicole Brown and her pal Ron Goldman in 1995.
