O.J. Simpson Released From Jail

LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson has been released from jail after posting $125,000 bail. Simpson was arraigned earlier Wednesday in connection with the alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia collectors at a Las Vegas hotel.

Simpson emerged at midday from the Clark County Detention Center. He walked deliberately and carried a black bag as he got into a car with his lawyer and drove away.

He said nothing to reporters.

Simpson's lawyer has said he expects the former football star to return to his home in Florida.

Simpson spent three nights in the Las Vegas jail after his arrest Sunday. He was freed about two hours after telling Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure that he understood the charges against him, including first-degree kidnapping, which carries the possibility of life in prison with parole.
