O. J. Simpson is a damn fool. Probably as a result of a drunken musing, he told his bail bondsman to contact a co-defendant in his sports memorabilia theft case, a clear violation of his bail agreement. O. J. is too damn old to get locked up. It serves no purpose, but that’s exactly where his old arse is going.
The Associated Press picks up the story, “O.J. Simpson was taken into custody Friday in Florida and will be brought before a judge next week on allegations that he violated terms of his bail in a Las Vegas armed robbery case, court officials said.”
“Clark County District Attorney David Roger alleges that in a November voice message, Simpson told his bail bondsman to contact co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart and express frustration about testimony given at hearing where Simpson, Stewart and a third man were ordered to stand trial.”
“I’m tired of this (expletive),” Simpson is quoted as saying in a transcript that was included in Roger’s motion to revoke bail filed Friday. “Fed up with (expletive) changing what they told me. All right?”
Simpson had been instructed by Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Joe M. Bonaventure in September not to have any contact with anyone involved in the case — not even by “carrier pigeon.” Simpson was to go before a judge Wednesday.
