O.J. Simpson would have made Detective Frank Drebin proud for his good deed when he hunted down the owner of a missing wallet and delivered it back during a face-to-face visit on the guy’s doorstep.
Through his attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, Simpson tells The Blast, “I got out of my car at the [Summerlin] PGA Tour store and saw the wallet laying next to my parking spot.” He says he opened up the wallet to look for the owner’s contact info and found two different addresses, but no phone number.
Simpson explains that he too knows what it’s like to be caught in a stressful situation, because he admits “Two weeks earlier I had lost my drivers license so I know how frustrating it is to have that happen.”
He says, “I went home and looked him up on the computer and found the correct address and dropped it by that evening on my way home from dinner,” adding that “I just did what I hope most people would do in the same situations if the roles were reversed.”
As we reported, Simpson was released last October after spending 9 years behind bars for a 2008 armed robbery conviction.
