Earlier today, we posted a report that O.J. Simpson had been attacked at a Nevada Correctional Center where he's serving jail time and brutally beaten by a group of skinheads.
That report, coming from The National Enquirer, is false.
"There is no truth to that whatsoever," a Nevada Correctional Facility spokesman told CBSSports.com. "There was no altercation. O.J. is perfectly fine and healthy."
So, that's the good news: O.J. Simpson is safe and sound inside of jail.
The bad news? The National Enquirer has clearly lost all credibility.
That's only a half-joke -- they were white-hot with the Tiger Woods scandal, and it's a little surprising to see them completely whiff here, especially if they've got a -- hopefully not fabricated! -- quote from Juice's former business manager.
Which means maybe they'll be kind enough to hire someone who can go out and find the real assailants (since O.J. no longer has the money for that these days).
