Police have allowed OJ Simpson to leave Las Vegas, despite claims that at least one of his associates was armed when he entered a hotel room in a dispute over the ownership of sports memorabilia. By one account, the former football and movie star and his gun-wielding entourage barged into the room on Thursday night to repossess memorabilia, claiming the items were stolen.

They include the suit he wore on the day he was acquitted of the murder of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman. Simpson says he politely requested that his items be returned.

Las Vegas police are now holding the memorabilia while they investigate the incident.
