Eight New Charges Filed Against O.J. Simpson

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson will face seven felony charges, one including kidnapping. County prosecutors have filed eight charges in all against O.J. Simpson in the Las Vegas hotel room confrontation.

The former football star was initially arrested on suspicion of assault and robbery with a deadly weapon and is being held without bail. If convicted he could be sentenced to life in prison.

Simpson is set to be arraigned tomorrow. Police say he and several other men stormed into the hotel room and made off with sports memorabilia. The items include Simpson 's Hall of Fame certificate, a gold Rolex watch and the suit Simpson wore on the day he was acquitted.

Authorities have said that they don't believe Simpson had a gun but that one or more of the men with him did. According to the complaint, Simpson prevented one of the collectors in the room from calling 911 on his cell phone by "ripping it out" of his hand.
