O.J. Simpson has been contacted by Las Vegas authorities and is cooperating with the investigation after being named as a suspect in an armed robbery of "various sports-related products" in a hotel, according to news sources.

"Mr. Simpson is cooperating with the Las Vegas Police Department during this investigation," Capt. James Dillon said at a press conference.

Dillon said O.J. Simpson was and remains one of the suspects in the case, and that the former double-murderer football star was initially asked to undergo questioning after being contacted by police at a Las Vegas hotel.

At the time of the press conference, Dillon said O.J. Simpson was not in custody, nor was he restricted from leaving Las Vegas.

Las Vegas detectives expected to question Simpson later Friday and possibly into Saturday. No word on whether they have at the time of this post.

Dillon provided few details of the case. When asked if guns were used, he said, "We have reports from the victim that there are weapons involved."

None of the alleged weapons had been recovered, said Dillon, though some of the sports items involved in the case have been.

Earlier Friday, Simpson admitted it.

Going into the hotel room, that is. He says he only went in to collect memorabilia that belonged to him, though, and did not break into the premises.

The break-in was reported at the Palace Station casino late Thursday night, police spokesman Jose Montoya told the Associated Press.

"Simpson made the comment that he believed the memorabilia was his," he said. "We're getting conflicting stories from the two sides."

The alleged victim was identified by TMZ as Alfred Beardsley.

A sports memorabilia collector, Alfred Beardsley says Simpson and his posse posed as customers who wanted to buy the suit Simpson wore when he was acquitted in the murders of his ex-wife Nicole and Ron Goldman.

Beardsley says they entered the room and two men drew guns. He said O.J. Simpson was calling the shots during the alleged robbery.

O.J. Simpson claims he was merely running his own personal "sting" operation, and went into the hotel room to get back things he says are his.

Las Vegas police say O.J. Simpson is a suspect in a Thursday night break-in of a Palace Station hotel room ... involving sports memorabilia.

Was good ol' Orenthal the knife-wielding maniac trying to get his #32 jersey or Heisman back? Is that six-figure NFL pension not enough? Who knows.

The ex-NFL star was supposed to be in Miami today, according to TMZ, for a deposition in a bankruptcy case involving his eldest daughter, Arnelle - but it was canceled because the Juice said he was going out of town.

Hotel sources in Las Vegas report that O.J. did not have a room booked for himself, but confirm that Simpson was spotted in the hotel Thursday night.

Most scumbags of this nature would be content committing a double murder and getting off, but apparently, O.J. Simpson is intent on continuing the crime spree.

Las Vegas Police spokesman Jose Montoya said O.J. Simpson was released, and is believed to still be in Sin City. Sounds like a regular Ocean's 11 caper to us!

Except for the fact that, you know, none of the people in that movie ever killed two people in cold blood, then rubbed it in the world's face.

We know we're in the minority here, but we frickin' despise this guy? Could yuo tell? Man, only O.J. could make Michael Vick look like a patron saint.

Saturday marked the 133th running of the Kentucky Derby, and the stars flocked to the home state of Tara Conner to enjoy some mint juleps, horse racing and outlandish outfits.

Below (left), we see happy new dad Larry Birkhead with two women, who have been identified as Priscilla Barnstable and Patricia Barnstable Brown. Think he's shopping around for new mothers for Dannielynn? Either way, there's no doubt that Larry's lookin' sharp.

Lovable Larry

To Larry's right, we have Kid Rock, who always feels at home in the south and in new girlfriend May Andersen. In addition to rocking a super-cool hat and shirt, Kid took some time out to publicly diss Kevin Federline during an interview.

Elsewhere, Star Jones and her husband, Al Reynolds, took in the events, looking happy and almost normal by her standards. If she's going to bust out a ridiculous hat, at least Star picked an appropriate event with the Kentucky Derby.

Lastly, we have O.J. Simpson. We can't really see what he's wearing at the Derby, but we chose to include him because: 1. He was at the event. 2. It's nice to see that known murderers who will one day rot in the fiery pits of hell can at least enjoy the sport of kings.

Which Kentucky Derby outfit is your favorite?

Michael Richards and Mel Gibson, who, when combined, apparently despise Jews and blacks and gays, can at least take solace in the fact that they haven't killed anybody.

Unlike the crazy motherf*%ker below.

O.J. Simpson Mug Shot III

It appears that O.J. Simpson, whose upcoming, "hypothetical" tell-all book was pulled by Fox, may have had an accomplice in the murders that a jury said he didn't commit: Prozac.

Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, says the Juice was high as a kite on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the 1994 killings.

"O.J. is very much out of his mind... [which] was complicated by the Prozac," says Gilbert, who adds that Simpson continued wolfing down the drug to help him withstand the pressure as cops put the heat on him.

He believes Simpson's altered state from the Prozac allowed him to commit murder and avoid cracking. Over the years, the drug has been blamed for sparking violent and psychotic behavior. In the wake of Simpson's attempt to cash in with a book, If I Did It, and TV special, Gilbert (like the rest of us) is sickened:

"I can't forgive him for the way he has conducted himself since [the murders]. He's the kind of guy who, were he on the Titanic, would have taken two life preservers for himself and watched his kids drown."

He probably would. Feel free to take about 25 bottles of Prozac, Juice. Today. Surely Pete Doherty can set you up with his dealer.

O.J. Simpson has confessed.

Hypothetically, that is.

It's The Juice!

The former football great, who was acquitted in criminal court 11 years ago of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, reportedly has been paid a whopping $3.5 million to write about the double murder that shocked and riveted the nation in 1994, according to MSNBC.

But Simpson is not actually confessing to the murder, people. Oh no.

He's writing a "hypothetical" book -- one tentatively being called If I Did It.

THG NOTE: This is akin to Anna Nicole Smith authoring a memoir called If I Married a 90-Year Old Billionaire, Then Sold The Last Living Pics of My Dead Son For More Money, or to a lesser degree, Lindsay Lohan writing a tell-all book called If Those 386 Guys Boned Me.

Simpson, who is probably one of the worst people alive not named Kim Jong Il, seeing as he brutally murdered two humans and now stands to profit off of it, talks early on about how he fell in love with Nicole and how the marriage collapsed.

The only member of the NFL's 2,000-yard single-season rushing club to also slash the throats of other people goes on to describe in gruesome detail the killing of his ex-wife and Goldman -- stipulating that the murder scenes are "hypothetical."

Yet the descriptions are reportedly so detailed and so realistic that readers are left with little doubt as to what really happened.

Because of double jeopardy laws, O.J. Simpson can never be tried for the murders again. But was later ordered to pay over $30 million after being convicted in a wrongful death civil suit.

The victims' families can't have his six-figure annual NFL pension plan, of course -- and Orenthal plans to spend the earnings from this new book quickly, MSNBC reports, so those greedy bastards can't touch that either!

Wow. And we thought Mel Gibson had issues. Buy some nice summer clothes with those book royalties, Juice -- we hear hell is pretty damn hot.
