O.J. Simpson has been banned for life from the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a luxury resort casino and hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, after an alcohol-induced bout early Thursday morning, according to Us Weekly.
“O.J. was at the Clique bar around midnight. He’s been going to a bunch of their bars recently. He’s been spotted all over the hotel … O.J. was being very unruly, yelling at hotel staff and then knocked over glasses from the bar that shattered onto the floor,” a source told Us Weekly.
Simpson was reportedly asked to leave the casino shortly after the incident.
“It wasn’t the biggest scuffle, but he did cause a scene and it was clear to everyone around him that he was very intoxicated,” said the source.
The 70-year-old former NFL player is no stranger to trouble inside Las Vegas hotels. In 2007, he kidnapped and robbed a man at gunpoint after being accused of stealing his memorabilia. Simpson claimed he had gone to the Las Vegas hotel to reclaim his property.
‘The Juice’ was released just five weeks ago from Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada after serving nine years.
Simpson was at the center of arguably the most publicized court case in 1994 after his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman, were found brutally murdered outside Nicole Simpson’s condo in Brentwood, California.
O.J. Simpson was acquitted in the criminal case, but was later found liable in civil court.
Simpson is on parole after his recent release from prison. It is not clear whether he potentially violated conditions of the parole because he was not arrested as a result, according to Bleacher Report.
Simpson’s camp has not released a statement related to the most recent alleged disturbance as of the latest reports available.
