Looks like things continue to go badly for O.J. Simpson. Sometimes you wonder if his getting away with murder comes back to haunt him every so often. Just last Sunday his oldest daughter Arnelle punched his lights out after an argument about O.J.’s girlfriend.

Cops rushed to the Florida home of O.J. Simpson after his eldest daughter knocked him to the ground in a brawl over his girlfriend Christie Prody, sources said.
“Arnelle had a fight with Christie over Christie’s behavior. That’s what started the whole thing,” a source told the Daily News.
“Christie has some problems with drinking, and Arnelle got mad. O.J. said ‘Don’t talk to her like that,’ and Arnelle pushed him.”
The source said Arnelle, 39, called 911 in a fit of guilt after she toppled the 61-year-old on Sunday, giving him a minor head injury.
The police report does not mention O.J.’s fall, but the National Enquirer, which first reported the row, quoted a source saying O.J. was “cut on the back of his head, blood was coming out the side of his mouth and his lip was cut.”
The Enquirer said Arnelle was furious with O.J. for dishing out money to Prody, 32, while his high school sweetheart – Arnelle’s mom, Marguerite Whitley – has to work at WalMart to make ends meet.
Arnelle also lashed out at OJ for “ditching” Whitley to marry Nicole Brown Simpson, the Enquirer reported. O.J. was acquitted of Nicole’s murder in 1995. Two years later, a civil jury found him “responsible” for the killing.
“It wasn’t a big deal,” the source said of Sunday’s scuffle. “He wasn’t all cut up.”
The police report says the altercation ended when Arnelle agreed to leave O.J.’s house “in order to let things calm down.”
I know Arnelle is the daughter and O.J. is her dad, but can you blame her for how she feels? Her mom is working at WalMart to make ends meet and it’s obvious O.J. doesn’t give a damn. And this is the same O.J. Simpson whom many (not all) in the black community rallied around during the O.J. trial.
