O.J. Simpson had a lot to say about Donald Trump and the charge he just got this week.
The former NFL running back stated he wanted to share some of the greatest legal advice he has ever gotten.
“Do not talk about the case publicly.”
For those unaware, Trump, the current front-runner in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, was indicted on federal charges Thursday stemming from the former president’s alleged improper retention of classified records at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump is listed as a criminal defendant charged with at least seven counts involving obstruction of justice, conspiracy, and illegal retention of classified government material.
When it comes to being in a courtroom, Simpson knows all about it.
Back in 1994, an infamous car chase involving Los Angeles police and former NFL star OJ Simpson interrupted the NBA Finals between the Houston Rockets and the New York Knicks.
Midway through Game 5, the Rockets and Knicks found themselves tied at two games apiece, with their fifth clash of the series potentially pivotal in deciding who would go on to win the NBA Finals.
NBC’s broadcast of Game 5 suddenly switched to show coverage of Simpson evading police down a Los Angeles freeway.
Simpson was later arrested, put on trial, and eventually acquitted.
Many years later, he would be charged with a number of crimes, including armed robbery and kidnapping. A jury found him guilty of all charges. He was later sentenced to a minimum of nine years in prison, with a possible maximum sentence of 33 years. Simpson was granted parole in 2017.
He has essentially become a social media star ever since.
