O.J. Simpson is known by many as the man who bent the justice system. What’s true, is that he is the star of one of the most publicized trials in American history. He was released from Lovelock Prison on Sunday after serving a 9-year sentence for assault and kidnapping.
Nevada officials confirmed that the former North American footballer was released shortly after midnight from Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.
O.J. Gets a Low-Key Prison Release
While his release was as quiet as possible, people still were well aware of what the NFL star would be doing as soon as he was released.
Heading out to live on parole for the next 5 years, he was released in the dark and quiet of the night. Still, one reporter ambushed him as he was leaving the state prison.
“Y’all stalking me.”
He did not seem happy at all. He would have preferred to be unrecognized as he was putting fuel on his car.
The reporter was “invasive” according to The Juice’s reaction:
“None of your business… I’ve been in the car for the last five hours, six, so how do I know how it feels to be out of prison?”
Reportedly, Simpson went straight to McDonalds as soon as he got out and enjoyed his first post-prison meal.
