O.J. Simpson has been banned for life from the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a luxury resort casino and hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, after an alcohol-induced bout early Thursday morning, according to Us Weekly.

Eventually, glasses at the bar broke because of the former National Football League star's behavior, prompting a call to hotel security. The news outlet says Simpson was "disruptive" and that glasses were broken at the bar.

The former Heisman Trophy victor was removed from the hotel by security, and reportedly banned for life from the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

O.J. Simpson was released from prison in October after serving almost nine years. "We're told Simpson was nice to responding security guards".

A witness, meanwhile, spotted Simpson inside the hotel shortly after midnight.

A person at the Cosmopolitan Wednesday evening took a photo of Simpson walking through the hotel. At least not according to a report.

Simpson's lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, told KTNV that there's no truth to reports that Simpson was drunk.

At this point, it's unknown how much Simpson had to drink or what the cause of the commotion was. Florida's Attorney General, Pam Bondi, was adamant about not allowing Simpson back into the Sunshine State, but an ABC legal expert believes Florida will have to take him. KTNV reported that Simpson is "taking steps to make sure that his probation officer is clear about what happened".
