O.J. Simpson was recently released from a Nevada prison after serving 9 years for kidnapping and armed robbery. And he’s already getting himself into trouble after being banned from a Las Vegas casino.

The 70-year-old football legend was reportedly drunk at The Cosmopolitan casino. Oregon Live reports that his parole conditions state he can have alcohol, but not consume in excess.

Malcolm LaVergne, Simpson’s attorney, confirmed that his client did indeed receive a trespassing notice from the Cosmopolitan.

“Cosmopolitan exercised its right to issue a trespass notice. Any private property in Nevada has the right to tell any person that you are trespassing and please don’t come back if you comeback you are subject to a misdemeanor arrest,” Laverne said.

Simpson’s Attorney Denies the Allegations

While LaVergne admitted to the trespassing notice, he said that Simpson wasn’t intoxicated at the Vegas Strip-based casino. Simpson, who’s living in Vegas, has since met with his parole officer and passed drug and alcohol tests.

Drunk and Abusive Allegations

TMZ reports that Simpson was drunk and being abusive towards staff at The Cosmopolitan’s Clique bar.

“We’re told Simpson was angry at hotel staff and glasses broke at the bar,” TMZ stated, “Security showed up and removed Simpson from the hotel. We’re told Simpson was nice to responding security guards.”

Us magazine had a similar story, citing a source who said, “It wasn’t the biggest scuffle, but he did cause a scene and it was clear to everyone around him that he was very intoxicated.”

A report from KABC in Las Vegas has a witness on record saying that Simpson wasn’t drunk, despite others in his party heavily consuming wine.
