Even More Information on O.J. Simpson Bail Revocation

The New York Post has published an article giving more information on O.J. Simpson and his latest brush with the law. Below is the article by Jennifer Fermino dated January 12, 2008.

The bail bondsman who received an expletive laced voicemail from OJ Simpson thinks the mysterious stranger who threatened to tell authorities about the phone rant worked for Ron Goldman's family.

Miguel Pereira, the owner of You Ring We Spring, also said the Juice owes him more than $18,750 for handling his $125,000 bail back in September.

Pereira ended up passing along the Juice's incriminating voicemail to the Clark County DA's Office, who ordered the Heisman Trophy winner to jail.

"I don't want to be held liable for it," Pereira told The Post, adding he said he thought that the mysterious stranger who knew about the voicemail worked for the Goldman family, who for years have been engaged in a bitter lawsuit with Simpson.

"I believe he's working for the Goldman family. He was asking a lot of specific questions," Pereira said.

But Fred Goldman said yesterday he knows nothing about Simpson's latest problems. "I'd like to tell you that is accurate but I don't think it's true," he said. "I wish, but unfortunately, no."

Pereira said he didn't think much of Simpson's message when he first heard it in November.
But he suspects the man who later called him was a private eye who had tapped Simpson's phone because it's the only way he'd know about the message.

"I believe that somebody was listening to Mr. Simpson's conversations," said Pereira.

When Pereira told Simpson why he passed the message along, he said the gridiron great groused, "Everybody's out to get me."

Pereira on Friday escorted Simpson from his home in Miami to jail in Las Vegas.

"Mr. Simpson was relaxed on the flight," said Pereira. "We were talking throughout the flight. He was expressing his concerns."

One of those pressing concerns for Simpson was his eagerly anticipated weekend card game.

"He was upset that he was going to miss his poker game that was planned at his house," said Pereira.

The plot thickens. I will keep abreast of this story and post more as it develops.

wah, wah, wah, give the baby a pacifier.

Note to Ron Goldman's father: be sure to get your lawyer to attach any winnings that Simpson may be getting at these games to squeeze more out of the Juice. If you can't have justice, a pound of flesh might have to do.

nunoftheabove: I agree. You know this guy has money. If he didn't, how could he afford to live.

I noticed the Juice was wearing his golf visor...any word on whether his clubs made the trip?

If he missed his poker game, I can imagine that he will be really upset if his tee time is delayed.

nunoftheabove: He probably felt he would be able to "WOW" the judge and get a quick nine in afterwards. I sure hope they nail him this time.
