In 2007, OJ Simpson got a call from Tom Riccio, a collectibles broker who had worked with Simpson in the past. He informed Simpson that a couple of dealers had some of OJ’s personal property that went missing or were stolen from him.
“OJ was both angered and excited that a lot of his stuff he’d been looking for for many years was back in his grasp,” Riccio says during the series premiere of Mysteries Scandals. “He wanted it back. He came up with the idea to tell them that we had a rich OJ fan that wanted to buy this stuff. And that he would go there and try to get it back himself.”

A boy in Beaverton, Oregon called 911 on his own mother for driving drunk from the backseat of her car.
Nicole Norris, 30, was driving home from a minor league baseball team game Saturday night when her 11-year-old son called 911, according to Oregon Live.
Police arrived and Norris was cited for a DUI. Her blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit, an NBC affiliate reports.
