O.J. Simpson banned from casino 'after being booted out'

He was released from prison on parole last month but O.J. Simpson hasn’t wasted much time in getting kicked out of a casino.

According to TMZ, the 70-year-old former NFL star was thrown out of the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.

Attorney Malcolm LaVergne told The Associated Press that Simpson received a tresspass notice from the hotel on Wednesday and no reason was given for the ban.

However, he denied the former NFL pro was intoxicated or belligerent.

He added that Simpson contacted his parole officer on Thursday and produced negative drug and alcohol tests.

Sources had told TMZ that OJ was allegedly drunk ad being unruly towards hotel staff.

One Twitter user spotted The Juice in Sin City and took to the social media site to share a picture of him.

They wrote: “Never know who you are going to see in Vegas…. yep, OJ Simpson (sic)”

Simpson was released from a Nevada prison on October 1 after serving time for his involvement in a September 2007 robbery in Las Vegas.

Last month, a cameraman caught up with Simpson, who was bound for Vegas, while he was sitting in the backseat of a car at a petrol station.

He said: “I’ve been in a car for the last five hours, so how do I know what it feels to be out?

“I’ve been in nowhere U.S.A. for the last nine years doing nothing. Nothing has changed in my life.”
