Las Vegas police arrested non-murderer OJ Simpson on Saturday on charges stemming from an armed robbery at a Vegas hotel. The police pinched OJ at his hotel room in the Palms Casino Resort on as-yet undisclosed charges.
Police also arrested Walter Alexander, and seized two guns suspected as the weapons involved in the armed robbery.
“I don’t know why they arrested him,” Simpson said Sunday. “I’ve stayed in contact with the police and the truth will come out.”
Simpson had already been questioned during the investigation into several items of sports memorabilia that were taken from collectors at a room in the Palace Station Hotel and Casino. Simpson has said the items belonged to him.
Alexander was arrested Saturday night and charged with two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of burglary with a deadly weapon, the source said.
OJ should get Johnny Cochran on the phone pronto. Oh wait… he can’t. Robert Kardashian, maybe? Nope, that probably won’t work either.

Las Vegas police confirmed today that OJ Simpson is a suspect in an alleged break in and robbery at an area hotel room. Alfred Beardsley, a memorabilia dealer, claimed OJ and five other men barged into his hotel room at Palace Station Hotel last night and took several items while holding him at gunpoint. Among the items taken was the suit OJ wore the day he was acquitted of murder.
Beardsley tells TMZ he had arranged to meet with someone last night who was interested in buying the suit and other Simpson memorabilia. Beardsley says the man was actually a member of Simpson’s crew. He says the men stormed the room, two of them had guns drawn.
Beardsley says the men claimed to be police officers. OJ and others demanded that Beardsley and two other men surrender their cell phones. Beardsley refused to do so. Beardsley says the group stole every piece of memorabilia in the room, including items signed by Joe Montana. They also took a case of never-released leather editions of Simpson’s book, “I Want to Tell You.”
Beardsley told TMZ he was uneasy about the arranged meeting and did not have the suit of clothes in the room when the six men entered.
Beardsley says he made a 911 call, and cops subsequently obtained a search warrant for the room. CSI investigators took Beardsley’s phone and took DNA samples and photos of his body. Beardsley says one of the guys roughed him up.
Police claimed they questioned OJ, but did not place him under custody. An active robbery investigation is currently underway.
