Default OJ Simpson kicked out of, banned from Las Vegas hotel

Quote:
Simpson was at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas Wednesday night, but he won’t be welcomed back again, judging by what happened while he was there. He was thrown out of a hotel bar for “getting wasted and then being extremely unruly,” according to a report from TMZ Sports.

Uh oh... isn't he still on parole?

Sure hope his PO doesn't give him a "whiz quiz", then violate him...

He has been tested by the agency after reporting the alleged incident to his PO and was clean.

I was just reading on another forum that apparently in Nevada, you CAN drink while on parole, so long as your BAC never goes above .08 (the point of being "buzzed").

That would seem pretty hard to prove, as the human body metabolizes one drink per hour, so even being tested the next day after being drunk the night before might show inconclusive results.

I wasn't aware that other states were more liberal in their tolerance for alcohol for those on parole. I always just assumed it was a blanket restriction, and testing positive for any amount of alcohol was enough to potentially violate you.

Really who cares. He's going to do whatever he wants just for attention.

I guess you haven't been really exposed to more then what you have read here or what you have personally learned everyone's parole is different. I know it sounds stupid but its a fact some can do whatever as far as drugs or drinking and never be tested. That's my problem with the system, makes for some totally screwed up parole's!!!

Apparently so. I'm just thinking back to the last (only) time I accepted parole, all of us new releases had to show up at the P&P office for orientation on a Wednesday night. I remember it well. For me, it was literally the day after I had been released from prison.

Before the meeting even began, the agent doing the presentation said "I smell alcohol on someone's breath -- someone better fess up or you're ALL getting tested before you leave." Sure enough, no one fessed up, so he had one of his assistants fetch a breathalyzer kit, and one by one, we all had to line up on our way out, and give a quick blow into the device.

Two people blew positive. They had both just gotten out of prison less than a week before. They were both placed in cuffs and arrested back to jail that very night, I saw them show up on the local sheriff's department arrest register and everything.

I just assumed that was the norm everywhere, but maybe it's just an Idaho thing.

At least OJ is consistent in his behavior--short sighted.

Basically who cares what he does. It's just more publicity for him and something else to put in his book

I would imagine no business would want him hanging out at their casino. Rather lose one customer than hundreds. Not sure if what they did is legal but if it is it’s understandable.

NGC gives broad discretion to permanently 86 someone. And, for what it is worth, not all permabans are actually permanent. My guess is that it will be lifted in six months or so, if not before the Super Bowl. Although, as I recall, the Cosmo lacks a sportsbook, so they don't get the draw by having him on site during the Super Bowl.

However, I am guessing there is A LOT more to this story than has been leaked to the media. Situations like this do not occur in a vacuum, especially when you get hipster idiots that want to try and get their 15 minutes of YouTube fame (you know, like too many of the patrons of the Cosmopolitan).

There are also enough fame chasers that, as a general rule, casinos benefit from someone like OJ being on the premises. Those fame seekers on The Strip bring in money to gamble with, and may even gamble beyond their means for a shot at saying that were near OJ in a High Roller pit or at one of the bars on the premises.
