O.J. Simpson ran into trouble at Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan Casino last year. He was kicked off the property for allegedly acting drunk and disorderly.

Now, TMZ reports that Simpson might sue the casino for $100 million over what he thinks is an unjust ban.

Here’s an excerpt from TMZ:

O.J. Simpson and his legal team are gearing up for a massive lawsuit against The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for permanently booting him from the premises.

Simpson’s attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, said in a letter Friday O.J. will seek at least $100 million after he says the casino, “singled out Mr. Simpson amongst his non-African American friends and subsequently expelled him for what turned out to be a fake reason while he peacefully visited the Cosmopolitan.

What Happened to OJ Simpson at the Cosmopolitan Last Year?

As I reported back in November, Simpson supposedly drank too much at the Cosmopolitan and began treating staff members poorly.

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

Simpson is currently under parole after spending 9 years in federal prison for armed robbery. And while he’s allowed to consume alcohol, excessive consumption is a clear violation of his parole.

Simpson Banned from Cosmopolitan

Following the 2017 incident, the Cosmopolitan banned Simpson from their property.

“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,” said Malcolm Laverne, Simpson’s attorney.

O.J. has yet to go through with the lawsuit yet. But if he does sue, this will be a huge case to watch in 2018.
