Nevada police: 'No truth whatsoever' to OJ story

Posted by Will Brinson

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).

Report: O.J. Simpson brutally beaten in prison

Posted by Will Brinson

UPDATE: Turns out Juice is just fine, as a Nevada Correctional spokesman told CBSSports.com that there was "no truth whatsoever" to the story.

O.J. Simpson's been an afterthought since he went to prison, but a report today that he was brutally beaten by skinheads in his prison cell has him back in the media spotlight.

The National Enquirer, which gained noticeable sports cred when they broke the Tiger Woods scandal, reports that Simpson was "beaten unconscious in a brutal prison yard attack" and is now so messed-up mentally that he can't leave his cell.

"Unfortunately for O.J., a group of young skinhead punks were within earshot - and they were enraged," Bruce Fromong, a former business partner of Simpson's told the Enquirer.

The Enquirer's report indicates that Simpson decided to "brag about his sexual conquests of beautiful white women" and that didn't sit to well with a group of "white supremacists."

Simpson, now 63-years-old is apparently "afraid to venture out of his cell" following the reported attack.

Unfortunately, Simpson is probably a long shot to garner much sympathy for his situation, which says a lot about what he did to end up in the Nevada Correctional Center.
