* MOCK-UP OF HOTEL ROOM BUILT FOR O.J. TRIAL
The site of O.J. SIMPSON's alleged hotel heist is to be recreated in the basement of Clark County Court in Nevada, where the former sports star is on trial for kidnapping and armed robbery. To save the judge and jury in the case from a trip to the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas, where Simpson and five associates allegedly burst in on sports memorabilia dealer Bruce Fromong and a business partner and demanded the return of stolen goods while wielding guns, the suite is coming to them. Skilled crime scene reconstruction workers have built an exact replica of the room in the courthouse's basement, so that jury members can get a feel of what happened last September (07) shortly before Simpson and his posse were arrested. Simpson and an associate, Charles Stewart, face life imprisonment if they're convicted. Both have pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping and armed robbery. (IG/WNWA/KL)

L’ex campione di football americano punta il dito contro i boss del noto albergo di Las Vegas.

O.J. Simpson ha avviato una causa contro l’hotel Cosmopolitan di Las Vegas accusando i manager di diffamazione.

La questione risale al 2017, quando l’attore di «Una pallottola spuntata» venne allontanato dal Clique Bar & Lounge in stato d’ebbrezza e per disturbo della quiete pubblica.

Secondo quanto riportato dal sito TMZ lo sportivo venne poi bandito dall’hotel. Ma Simpson assicura di non essere stato ubriaco e che quanto sostenuto dai padroni dell’albergo non sia mai avvenuto. In quella stessa serata, il giocatore della NFL sarebbe piuttosto stato ringraziato per la sua presenza come «special guest» dal manager del ristorante dell’hotel.

Il giorno dopo il 72enne ha ricevuto la visita di un ufficiale di polizia che gli ha somministrato i test di droga e alcol. Entrambi sono risultati negativi.

Il «fattaccio» è accaduto solo poche settimane dopo il rilascio di prigione di Simpson, arrestato per rapina a mano armata e sequestro di persona nel 2008.

«Un modello perfetto di libertà vigilata», leggono i documenti legali dell’ex stella della NFL.
