O.J. Simpson

O.J. Simpson back in custody

It seems like O.J. Simpson still can't keep himself out of the spotlight.

The former football star allegedly violated the terms of his bail agreement with the state, prompting a District Court judge today to revoke the deal, according to court records.

The Associated Press is reporting Simpson, who is a Florida resident, is now in custody there.

In September, Simpson promised a District Court judge he would not have any contact – direct or indirect – with victims, witnesses or co-defendants related to his alleged involvement in a robbery that month at Palace Station. The judge accepted $125,000 bail.

Simpson, in a voicemail message transcribed in court papers, allegedly directed his bail bondsman to contact co-defendant Clarence Stewart: “don’t be trying to change s--- now.”

We shortened the quote, because much of his message was laced with obscenities.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released a statement saying that it is not involved in the Simpson situation, because the private bail bond company Simpson used in Las Vegas has revoked the bond — thus it is a civil matter between the two parties.

Metro also said it expected Simpson to arrive at the Clark County Detention Center later this evening
