The man was arrested on Saturday was charged with two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary with a deadly weapon.
Although the alleged victim, memorabilia dealer Alfred Beardsley told police that he does not wish to press charges at this time, following an apology from ex-friend OJ, it is now out of his hands.
â€œI want this thing to go away. I have health problems,â€ said Beardsley, of Burbank, CA. He said he â€œhad no desire to fly back and forth to Las Vegas to testify,â€ according to Sky News.
OJ and a group of about five men allegedly took the dealer by surprise the other day when he allegedly robbed the memorabilia sellers at gunpoint.
Simpson says he was taking matters into his own hands because since his problems with the law, he doesnâ€™t believe that the police are helpful during situations like this. The now 60-year old Simpson said he was just trying to retrieve personal items that he claims are his, including family photos and the suit he wore when he was acquitted of murder back in 1994.
Many collectors made a lot of money from Simpson memorabilia seized from his possession to help pay the civil suit won by Fred Goldman after the murder acquittal in the death of his son waiter Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.
Simpson says this whole thing is just a big misunderstanding and he thinks heâ€™s done absolutely nothing wrong
