The Juice is loose once again. Pro Football Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson, who is currently serving for more years of his prison sentence in a Nevada prison for a Las Vegas hotel room robbery back in 2007, is apparently one hungry man.
According to a report from Patricia Shipp of The National Enquirer, Simpson was caught stealing some cookies from the prison’s cafeteria.
The former gridiron great was recently caught stealing sweets from the cafeteria of the Nevada prison where he’s serving a 33-year sentence for armed robbery. Guards noticed that the 66-year-old seemed to be hiding something in his clothes after lunch and seized more than a dozen oatmeal cookies from the would-be smuggler, a close source told The ENQUIRER.
I can’t blame the man. Oatmeal cookies are delicious.
Fellow inmates initially thought that Simpson had some sort of illegal contraband that would be a bigger violation, so when they found out that it was just some sweets, they erupted with laughter.
“Everyone thought he had smuggled in a cell phone or some other kind of contraband, so when the guard started pulling cookies out of O.J.’s shirt, the other inmates started laughing so hard they nearly fell over,” the Enquirer states.
Of course, this story should not be accepted as 100 percent fact, but it is entertaining nevertheless.
When you consider what Juice has been accused and convicted in the past, a petty cookie theft is mild.
Once Simpson is done serving the next four years of his sentence, he will be released on parole.
