O.J. Simpson reportedly was removed from the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas on Wednesday for allegedly being drunk and unruly. 

According to a TMZ Sports report, Simpson broke glasses at the hotel's Clique bar and was disruptive with hotel staff. Security was called to escort him from the premises, and he reportedly was permanently banned from the Cosmopolitan.

Simpson, 70, was released from prison Oct. 1 after serving nine years in federal prison for armed robbery and kidnapping. He is currently out on parole, and it's unclear if this incident would constitute any violation because he was not arrested.

The Hall of Fame running back has been seen frequenting Vegas establishments since his release but has not made public comments. Simpson was previously charged with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994 before being acquitted in 1995. 

The trial returned to the public spotlight in 2016, when FX and ESPN both ran original programming about the case.
