O.J. Simpson was taken into custody in Florida on allegations that he violated terms of his bail by trying to talk a co-defendant out of cooperating in a Las Vegas armed robbery case, court documents say.
Simpson, 60, is to go before a Nevada judge on Wednesday at the request of Clark County District Attorney David Roger.
The prosecutor filed a motion Friday to revoke Simpson’s $125,000 bail.
Court documents obtained by CNN say Simpson allegedly tried to reach co-defendant Clarence Stewart though his bail bondsman. That was a violation of the terms of his release, according to a transcript of his bail hearing attached to the legal papers.
Authorities say they have a copy of a voicemail Simpson left for Stewart, the court documents say. Simpson is quoted as saying:
“I just want, want C.J. that the whole thing all the time he was telling me that (expletive), ya know, I hope he was telling me the truth, don’t be trying to change the (expletive, expletive) now, (expetive, expletive). I’m tired of this (expletive). Fed up with the (expletive) changing what they told me.”
Simpson was freed on bail on September 19 following his arrest on allegations he and several friends burst into a Las Vegas hotel room and robbed two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint.
Simpson has pleaded not guilty to 12 criminal counts in connection with what prosecutors contend was an armed robbery.
