O.J. Simpson becomes victim of violence

The name O.J. Simpson is far removed from football glory and modernly synonymous to violence and brutality. Though he was acquitted for the horrific murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, guilt was found in the court of public opinion, leaving Simpson a societal outcast. But even before the slayings, police records show several calls to the Simpson home with reports of domestic violence. Last Sunday, Florida police received another.

According to the New York Daily News, Simpson was the aggressor in an in-house spat, and Simpson was also the victim. What began as an altercation between two females in the home, ended with O.J receiving a minor head injury, blood flowing from his mouth, and a cut lip. To sum it up in one sentence, O.J. got his ass kicked by his daughter. Coming to the defense of his girlfriend, Christie Prody, the juice was leveled by an angry Arnelle, who followed up her assault with a call to the local authorities explaining what she had done.

At first I found it odd that any woman would consider dating O.J. Simpson, considering the history, but I also think back to women sending love letters to Scott Peterson and Richard Ramirez behind prison walls. I guess everyone has their fetish, but I personally see nothing remotely attractive about Aileen Wuornos and her “wild side”.

The argument was supposedly sparked by Arnelle’s words about Christie’s alcoholism, so at least I can still say no woman in her “right mind” would date the former Trojan great. With his daughter getting her licks in, I think it’s time we set up dates with the Goldmans and Browns, and allow them to bring weapons to this celebrity ultimate fighting match. I’m sure they wouldn’t decline the invitation.
