Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, instructed KTNV that there’s no fact to reviews that Simpson was drunk. LaVergne stated that his shopper often orders one drink and sips from it whereas socializing, and that Simpson was at Clique to eat hen wings.
LaVergne added that the resort’s choice to ban Simpson was apparently made earlier than his shopper arrived Wednesday, and as soon as notified, Simpson left quietly. TMZ reported that Simpson has been “frequenting bars at the hotel since his release from prison.”
“Like most things I deal with related to Simpson, 99 percent of this is bulls—,” LaVergne instructed the New York Daily News.
Simpson, who’s on parole till Sept. 29, 2022, is allowed to devour alcoholic drinks “but not to excess.” He is topic to alcohol and drug checks every time they’re demanded by Nevada’s parole and probation division, and can be thought of in compliance if his blood-alcohol ranges are beneath .08 %.
