O.J. Simpson was charged with seven felonies on Tuesday. Simpson, 60, added suspicion of assault and robbery with a deadly weapon along with kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping to his court documents, said District Attorney David Roger.
If Simpson is found guilty of the robbery at Palace Station casino, he is looking at life in prison.
"If it was anyone other than O.J. Simpson, he would have been released by now," Simpson's lawyer, Yale Galanter said.
Witnesses said they didn't think Simpson had a gun, but the people he was confronted with were armed.
Alexander, one of the men arrested with Simpson, told "ABC's Good Morning America" he thought Simpson was being set up because another memorabilia dealer who tipped him off recorded everything on tape.
