OJ Simpson says he went into a casino hotel room only to retrieve memorabilia that he felt was stolen from him. But police are investigating it as an armed robbery and named the fallen football star as a suspect in yet another surprising chapter to his legal saga. In an interview with The Associated Press on Friday, Simpson insisted there were no guns involved and that he went to the room at the Palace Station casino Thursday night only to get stolen mementos that included his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture of the running back with former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. "It's stolen stuff that's mine. Nobody was roughed up," Simpson told the AP. The ex-NFL football star and actor has been a tabloid staple since his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman were killed in 1994. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges, but a jury later held him liable for the killings in a wrongful death lawsuit. Simpson has had to auction off his sports collectibles to pay some of the $33.5 million judgment awarded in the civil trial.
