LOVELOCK, NV - A rumor that had O.J. Simpson at Renown Regional Medical Center recovering after being beat up is just a rumor. Nevada Department of Corrections Public Information Officer Suzanne Pardee said O.J. is safe, sound, and warm at Lovelock Correctional Center where temps hit a low of -13 degrees Wednesday morning.
Pardee said she's now sure how the rumor started, but she got a call from the National Enquirer earlier this week about the rumor. Simpson is serving a 33 year sentence for his role in an armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel in 2007. He is eligible for parole in 2017
