    LAS VEGAS (Sept. 16) -- O.J. Simpson was arrested Sunday and faces multiple felony charges in an alleged armed robbery of collectors involving the former football great's sports memorabilia, authorities said.

    O.J. Simpson, seen here Sunday in the custody of the Las Vegas Police, was arrested in connection with an alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia that took place at a hotel. He had been named a suspect on Friday.

    Prosecutors were planning to charge Simpson with two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and coercion, said Clark County District Attorney David Roger.

    A conviction on the most serious charge, robbery with use of a deadly weapon, could bring a sentence of three to 35 years for each count, he said.

    "He is facing a lot of time," Roger said. http://news.aol.com/story/ar/_a/police-arrest-simpson-in-robbery-case/20070914101509990001

    I wonder if he will get off of this or if he is going to do time.

    Funny if he gets jail over this. Like the G-Men going after Al Capone over tax evasion.

    In any case, who will scour the nation's golf courses in search of the "real" killers if OJ gets put in the pen for a long time?

    It's just a plot by the racist Las Vegas police department trying to keep a brother down.

    I saw a quote on SportsCenter this morning from OJ. In part of it, he said something along the lines of "I'm O.J. Simpson. Why would I think I could get away with armed robbery?"

    I suspect he thought he could because he got away with a double-murder 12 years ago.

    I'm just mad that we have to hear his name in the news, again. I wish he'd just go away.

    I wonder....
    • OJ's not near the financial shape he was when he killed Brown & Goldman. How is he gonna afford to buy his freedom this time? I think the well's dry.
    • I wonder if he's got the money to hire the attorneys that can find 12 people in Nevada stupid enough to believe another conspiracy.
    • I wonder if he wore a glove to commit this crime.

    OJ still receives his NFL pension and still has his home. Plus, we still don't know how much $$ he has hidden away from the Goldman family.

    Everytime i turn on the news...all i see is something about OJ over the last 2-3 days: :BangHead:
    They even pre-empted Hannity's American and 1/2 Hour News Hour last night on FNC to talk about this.
    It's like a bad nightmare...hopefully i'll wake up soon!

    Maybe the inmates of Nevada will solve the problem.

    Who, besides me, wants to reach through the TV screen and knock that smirk off his face?
