LAS VEGAS - Pro Football Hall of Famer, and one of the most controversial figures in American history, O.J. Simpson — who was released from a Nevada prison in October after serving time for armed robbery and assault — has been kicked out of a Las Vegas casino and banned for life for being belligerent, TMZ reports.
Simpson was reportedly inebriated at the Cosmopolitan in Vegas and became disruptive. TMZ said Simpson “was angry at hotel staff, and glasses broke at the bar.” Simpson was escorted off the premises by security and was banned for life from the property.
Simpson’s attorney Malcolm LaVergne confirmed to the Associated Press that Simpson was banned, but denied Simpson was intoxicated or belligerent. He also said the Cosmopolitan gave no reason for the ban.
Since he’s been out of prison, Simpson has reportedly frequented bars and other social gatherings in Las Vegas.
It’s unclear whether the incident will affect his parole standing in any way. LaVergne said Simpson met with his parole officer, who confirmed that Simpson was not under the influence of any substances.
TMZ recently shared this video of Vegas hotel and casino mogul Steve Wynn addressing the situation. “He’s too much excitement for us,” Wynn said when asked if Simpson should be allowed in his casinos.
