O.J. Simpson Arrested - Expected To Use Concussion Defense

Murder didn't seem to work out for getting O.J. Simpson behind bars, so now we're going to see if robbery, or possibly armed robbery, is going to do it.

Former football star O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted in 1995 of murdering his ex-wife, has been arrested in connection with an alleged armed robbery last week in Las Vegas. Simpson faces felony charges, Capt. James Dillon of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told reporters. The Thursday night incident was reported by a sports memorabilia dealer as an armed robbery in his room at the Palace Station Hotel & Casino.

Orenthal James, or O.J., Simpson has previously told police and the media that he did nothing wrong in Las Vegas. "I'm not walking around feeling sad or anything. I've done nothing wrong," Simpson said. He told reporters that "golfing buddies and some of their friends" accompanied him to a meeting at the Palace Station Hotel & Casino to help him retrieve sports memorabilia, personal photos and other items he said had been stolen by a former sports agent. "You've got to understand, this ain't somebody going to steal somebody's drugs or something like that. This is somebody going to get his private (belongings) back. That's it. That's not robbery."

Oh.

Great, another media circus to distract us from more weighty matters. O.J. reportedly plans to use a "concussion defense", where he will claim that repetitive concussions received during his football career reduced his ability to recognize armed robbery as a criminal activity punishable by imprisonment.
