According to hotel staff, O.J. Simpson, famously known as "The Juice," was intoxicated when he started to break glasses at the Cosmopolitan Hotel’s Clique Bar and Lounge at approximately midnight. Staff reported Simpson was yelling at them when he knocked glasses off of the bar. Security guards escorted the 70-year-old off of the premises, thus resulting in him being banned from the Hotel Bar. This information was reported by the New York Daily News, as well as many of facts listed below.

This incident comes shortly after The Juice was granted parole after a nine-year stint in the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.

He had been convicted of participating in a collaborative and armed robbery in 2007. According to sources, Simpson had been enjoying his new freedom by frequenting local bars in Las Vegas.

Simpson is innocent

Although sources say Simpson was drunk, Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm Lavergne, denies the allegations. He states Simpson was eating wings with a friend when he was escorted from the building for an unknown reason. Lavergne believes most accusations against Simpson are false.

Per the parameters of his parole, Simpson is able to consume alcohol; however, it must be consumed in moderation. His parole officer has the authority to test him at any given time for alcohol and drugs. Consequences could be significant as this violation happens just five weeks after his trial.

Prior to his robbery conviction, O.J. Simpson had been in a very public trial in 1995 for the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman. Millions of people tuned in for the infamous police chase of Simpson in his Bronco before he was arrested for the murders. The trial even got the attention of leaders and politicians overseas.

His life before crime

Although O.J. Simpson has made headlines for the last several years for various crimes, he was a successful football player and sports broadcaster before he began his life of crime. He began his football career at the University of South Carolina playing for the Trojans, winning the Heisman Trophy in 1968.

From 1969 until 1977, Simpson played football professionally for the Buffalo Bills as a running back.

After his football career, O.J. Simpson became a broadcaster on NBC. His last major assignment before his arrest in 1995 was at the Super Bowl XXVIII featuring the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills. The Cowboys had defeated Simpson’s former team, and thus began the downward spiral of O.J. Simpson.
