Two co-defendants have pleaded guilty to reduced charges and agreed to testify in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery and kidnapping case in Las Vegas.

Walter Alexander and Charles Cashmore were both in court today in Las Vegas. In return for their testimony against OJ Simpson, Clark County District Attorney David Roger agreed to drop charges including kidnapping, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy against both men.

These two upstanding individuals remain free pending sentencing.

This is more bad news for O.J. Simpson, who Alexander says "wanted guns" at the meeting with the memorabilia dealers he is accused of robbing.

It's looking worse and worse by the day for the Juice. Hopefully, lady friend and fellow criminal Christie Prody has been there to offer moral support.

O.J. Simpson "wanted armed men" with him when he went to confront the two sports memorabilia dealers he is accused of threatening and robbing at gunpoint.

That's according to a co-defendant who agreed to a plea bargain and agreed to testify for the prosecution against OJ Simpson in the kidnapping and robbery case.

"O.J. said 'Hey, just bring some firearms,'" Walter Alexander told police in a transcript of his tape-recorded statement obtained by the media.

Alexander told the police after his arrest September 15 that he and another man showed up with guns at the former football star's request.

That's when they headed over with him into a casino hotel room to retrieve various collectibles and memorabilia that O.J. Simpson said belonged to him.

"[O.J.] said ... 'we won't have to use 'em, but ... just to look tough, so that these people know that, you know, we're here for business,'" Walter Alexander said.

O.J. Simpson has denied guns were involved.

If Alexander's assertion turns out to be true, "it hurts OJ Simpson tremendously," Edward Miley, lawyer for co-defendant Charles Cashmore, said.

Charles Cashmore also has agreed to a plea deal.

Walter Alexander Mug ShotAnother one of the co-defendants in the O.J. Simpson robbery / kidnapping case has struck a plea deal with the D.A.

Bad news for the Juice!

Walter Alexander (pictured in mug shot) is expected in court this afternoon to plead guilty to lesser charges in the armed robbery case.

In return, Alexander is expected to testify against that raving lunatic O.J. Simpson and other co-defendants when the trial begins.

Orenthal James Simpson and three other upstanding characters - Clarence Stewart, Charles Ehrlich and Michael McClinton - are facing more than 10 different felony charges, including coercion and kidnapping.

In case you missed it, O.J. Simpson was arrested after robbing people in a Las Vegas hotel room. What happens in Vegas evidently stays there - in court.

Charles Cashmore also struck a deal last week and will plead guilty in exchange for his testimony. Cashmore is set to plead guilty to being an accessory to robbery, a felony that could get him up to five years in prison.

It was also recently revealed that O.J.'s girlfriend, Christie Prody, has a long list of legal problems and brushes with the law as well. Keeps good company.

Looks like O.J. Simpson's girlfriend learned from the best.

According to the Miami Herald, Christie Prody, 32, has been named in at least 18 police reports in Miami-Dade County since 2000, although only a few resulted in charges, and none led to jail time.

Guess you pick up some interesting things when you're dating a murderer.

Later this month, Simpson is due in court in Las Vegas to respond to charges of kidnapping and robbery - felonies that could send OJ to prison for decades.

But the football great's life between beating the rap for the 1994 murder of his ex-wife and her friend and the present day has been bumpy, to say the least.

The Miami-Dade police reports offer a glimpse of Simpson's life with Christie Prody since moving to South Florida after his "Trial of the Century" acquittal.

Below is a sampling - not even close to the whole list - of recent police incidents involving Christie Prody (above) and O.J. Simpson in South Florida ...

  • Christie Prody has accused OJ Simpson of entering her home illegally, stealing pages from her address book and erasing her voice mails.
  • Police have been called to break up loud fights between the couple five times in the past seven years.
  • Prody was ejected from a hotel near Miami International Airport in May 2000 for kicking and slapping Simpson.
  • She shoved him again on July 4, 2005, and then slapped one of his friends, according to various police reports.
  • Now-deceased sex tape broker David Hans Schmidt allegedly tried to shop a sex tape of OJ Simpson, Christie Prody and model Patty Kuprys, a video Simpson denied existed and threatened legal action over.
  • Christie Prody caused a rift between Simpson and his daughter Sydney, 21, in January 2003. Police found Sydney, then 17, alone in her bedroom. She told them she and O.J. were fighting because she did not like Prody.
  • Sydney's brother Justin, then 14, told investigators he got along fine with Prody ... after the local Department of Children & Families received 13 anonymous calls from Miami accusing Simpson of child abuse in 2003.
  • Prody was reprimanded by police in 2004 for using Simpson's disabled parking permit to park in a handicapped spot at Target.
  • Police recovered a stolen 30-foot motorboat - without its engines - from Simpson's property in 2003. It appeared Simpson had no involvement.
  • Federal agents raided Simpson's home in 2001 as part of an international drug investigation. Simpson wasn't charged in the Ecstasy ring.
  • Christie Prody was busted for marijuana possession in Southwest Miami last year. She paid a fine for the misdemeanor drug charge.
  • Prody was also fined by the city of Miami in 2002, pleading no contest to animal cruelty after her cat was found dead from abandonment.
  • Just two months ago, the Juice allegedly threatened to kill a local handyman who he hired to do some repairs, then accused of sleeping with Prody.

OJ Simpson has some serious rage issues.

Fortunately for a local repairman, only twice has he actually followed through on heated claims that he's going to kill somebody.

Simpson reportedly had an explosive altercation six weeks ago, after he accused his girlfriend of sleeping with an ex-con handyman.

According to the New York Post, O.J. Simpson arrived at the Gonzalez's home 30 minutes after leaving an angry voicemail in which he accused Janos Gonzalez - who Simpson had hired to work at his South Miami home - of sleeping with Christie Prody, the Juice's longtime girlfriend.

According to Marlene Gonzalez, O.J. parked his car - with his girlfriend in the front seat - in the Gonzalez family driveway and he approched Marlene, telling her that her husband had sex with Prody earlier that day.

Her husband heard the commotion and came outside to tell OJ to leave, to which Simpson responded, "Come over here. I'm going to f%*king kill you!"

O.J. Simpson then placed his hand behind him as if he were about to draw a gun, according to Marlene Gonzalez.

"I didn't know if he really had one," she said.

The confrontation lasted less than 15 minutes, ending when Mrs. Gonzalez called the police. O.J. then, you know, drove off.

The Gonzalezes filed a police report against O.J. Simpson, describing the incident as a verbal dispute - no weapons were used.

Janos Gonzalez has denied he ever met Prody, but said that he had heard about Simpson's relationship with her (police have responded to three domestic disputes between 2000 and 2005).

But police reports and court documents obtained by the New York Post and other sources show Prody and Gonzalez did have a past; police busted the pair inside Gonzalez's truck on August 22, 2006 for allegedly having drugs.

Miami police have not pursued the dispute case between O.J. Simpson - who was charged last week with kidnapping and armed robbery, among other felonies - and Janos Gonzalez. But give it time.

We're not the sharpest tools in the shed over here at The Hollywood Gossip, but even our fresh-faced, naive interns would be smart enough to know not to take a picture of O.J. Simpson with their cell phones.

If they worked in a courtroom, that is. Here, it would be cool.

Apparently, one courtroom employee is in hot water for just that - whipping out a phone and snapping an unauthorized OJ Simpson pic. TMZ obtained a letter written to the Juice, sent in care of his lawyers, apologizing for their actions, or as the court termed it, the actions of one of its "contract employees."

In the letter sent Thursday, the Executive Office of the Clark County Courts says a court reporter took a cell phone picture of Simpson as he left a court hearing this week, where he was arraigned on kidnapping charges and other really bad stuff.

The Clark County Court executive called the court employee's behavior "abhorrent" and told O.J. Simpson and his attorneys that it "would not be tolerated."

The letter says that the issue has been "addressed" with the employee, and the picture of OJ deleted. Unemployment benefits are good in Nevada, we hear.

We all love celebrity photos, and making a mockery of this disgrace, but come on man. Like you can't find O.J. Simpson mug shots plastered all over creation.

Hey, if there's one rule every criminal knows, it's that when you get arrested for things like kidnapping, armed robbery and murder on a semi-regular basis, you can pretty much expect people to start comparing your booking photos.

People love celebrity mug shots, after all!

The OJ Simpson mug shot from 1994 (left) should have been his last, but since he beat the rap for killing two people, we got to see the 2007 model, taken over the weekend after the Juice was arrested for kidnapping and robbery.

OJ Simpson booking photos: 1994, 2007. Juice certainly eats well!

It's hard to make any sense of the spectacle that is OJ Simpson, truly one of the more amazing humans of our time. But we do know two things for sure:

  1. He hasn't kept a low profile since getting away with murder, but rather has shown his true colors by attempting to flaunt and cash in on it.
  2. Guy hasn't eaten many salads since 1994.

In case you missed it, O.J. Simpson was charged with many felonies for his role in the alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia dealers in a Vegas hotel.

As of this morning, Simpson is free on $125,000 bail. He had to surrender his passport, but Mexico is only a three-hour drive from L.A., and they don't stop you at the border when you're going South. Gas up the Bronco, A.C.

Much to the dismay of millions (not) the Juice may never be loose again.

Sources report that OJ Simpson has been officially charged with kidnapping along with seven other felonies stemming from his crazed (and "alleged") armed robbery of a sports merchandise dealer in Las Vegas late last week.

The former football star and double murderer will face those charges, along with an additional misdemeanor, Wednesday morning in court.

Tuesday's charges differ slightly from the original six against OJ Simpson at the time he was thrown in jail Sunday, with prosecutors on Tuesday announcing that they had added felony kidnapping with a deadly weapon to the list.

If convicted, O.J. Simpson could face up to 30 years on each robbery count.

Three of the Juice's co-defendants were charged with the same felonies, as well as with a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to commit a crime.

The charges include conspiracy to commit a kidnapping, kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon, burglary with use of a deadly weapon, robbery with use of a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon and coercion with a deadly weapon.

All in a day's work for the slime of humanity, a criminally insane, knife-wielding killer who's somehow allowed to roam the streets of this country.

At Wednesday's hearing, projected to last just five minutes, bail will likely be discussed. Considered a flight risk, Simpson is currently being held without bail.

Here's hoping they let him out and he tries to flee for Mexico, sparking a massive manhunt. Al Cowlings is reportedly gassing up the Bronco as we speak.

What on Earth are the chances of O.J. Simpson committing armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel... and having it all recorded on tape?

Not great. Then again, O.J. Simpson is a rather exceptional human being, albeit in the worst conceivable way. So we're never that shocked.

It's The Juice!

The confrontation in a Las Vegas hotel room that led to O.J.'s arrest on robbery and various other charges paints a vivid picture of how angry the Juice got.

O.J. Simpson Mug Shot (2007)O.J. Simpson was arrested Sunday and ordered to be held without bail in connection with an armed robbery involving sports memorabilia that took place Thursday night in a Las Vegas hotel.

The former football star, 60, has been charged with two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two more counts of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit burglary with a firearm.

Authorities apprehended Simpson shortly after 11 a.m. in his room at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas and brought him to a police office.

So what happened? TMZ has obtained an audio tape of Simpson's confrontation (follow link to hear it) with the memorabilia dealer that led to his arrest.

In it, you can hear someone say, "You, against the motherf*%king wall!"

The tape was recorded by Thomas Riccio, who co-owns auction house Universal Rarities. Riccio met up with O.J. Simpson just before the confrontation at the Palace Station Casino on Thursday night.

According to reports, Riccio was on hand to help O.J. Simpson prove some memorabilia being auctioned by Alfred Beardsley was ill-gotten.

Riccio says he believed Simpson was going to confront Beardsley to give him an ultimatum - hand over the goods or Simpson would call the cops.

Riccio turned his Olympus digital voice recorder on before the group came in the room - a group that included Simpson and four other men.

Almost immediately, O.J. Simpson went wild, hurling profanities at Beardsley and another memorabilia dealer, Bruce Fromong.

The confrontation lasts six minutes. It is graphic and telling. Simpson is clearly the ringleader. Simpson repeatedly says, "Think you can steal my $h!t and sell it?"
