O.J. SIMPSON TURNED AWAY FROM EXCLUSIVE LAS VEGAS CLUB
O.J. Simpson has been denied access to the clubhouse at the Red Rock Country Club because he wasn’t with a member, it was learned Tuesday.
Simpson, who was released from prison Oct. 1 after a nine-year stay, is reportedly living, golfing and socializing at Red Rock Country Club with his unidentified friend.
“It wasn’t like he was banned because he was a bad guy,” a club member told Norm.Vegas. “He didn’t realize he had to be a member. It was pretty innocent.”
Simpson, the 1968 Heisman Trophy winner who broke the NFL rushing record in 1973, was arrested on Sept. 16, 2007 at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino and charged with 12 felonies, including armed robbery and kidnapping, in a case involving his sports memorabilia. Simpson told the police he was trying to reclaim his stolen possessions.
