It's OK, OJ is looking for the Murderers.: After having not done anything really dumb in a while, O.J. Simpson was accused yesterday by DirecTV of stealing satellite television signals. The Washington Post reports:
"The El Segundo, Calif.-based company wants the former football star to pay $20,000 for the use of illegal electronic devices and attorneys' fees...Federal agents removed satellite television equipment from Simpson's house in the Miami neighborhood of Kendall during a search Dec. 4, 2001. DirecTV claims the devices were two pirate access devices known as "bootloaders."
The raid occurred as the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration and Miami-Dade County police were investigating Simpson and others in an alleged Ecstasy and satellite-theft ring. Simpson was never charged. DirecTV claims Simpson bought, made or distributed the devices and other equipment to steal the broadcasts."
Well I guess the good news is that Simpson wasn't involved in the Ecstasy ring. Whew! That really could have impeded any progress made in finding the real killers of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
