Why was O.J. Simpson banned from hotel-casino on Vegas Strip?

O.J. Simpson has been banned from a hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip, his attorney confirmed to The Associated Press but denied the recently paroled former football star was drunk or belligerent at The Cosmopolitan on Wednesday.

Simpson received a trespass notice from the hotel but was given no reason for it, attorney Malcolm LaVergne told The AP on Thursday.

According to LaVergne, Simpson subsequently contacted his parole officer and on Thursday underwent drug and alcohol tests, which were negative.

The Cosmopolitan, in a statement to The AP, says it doesn’t comment on its guests.

Simpson, paroled last month, served nine years in Nevada state prison for armed robbery related to a botched attempt to retrieve some of his memorabilia in Las Vegas.
