O.J. Simpson

Ahead of the decision in O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, some embarrassing news has surfaced from his time in prison.

According to the Daily Mail, the former NFL star was caught masturbating last month by a female corrections officer making her normal rounds… and could potentially derail the parole board’s decision.

“OJ is facing a disciplinary hearing after being written up for masturbating in his prison cell,” a source told the paper. “He was caught by a female corrections officer making her normal rounds in late June.”

What’s wrong with pleasuring yourself in prison? Apparently it’s actually illegal. According to a report from VICE, there’s a rule against masturbation by prisoner to “keep inmates and staff safe, since masturbation can be intimidating, offensive, or serve as a precursor to sexual assault or fights.”

Despite the report, TMZ has published a conflicting report that says the story is fake.

An alleged statement from Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada claims it never happened. “It is against Nevada Dept. of Corrections policy to release inmate disciplinary history to the public. It is also against policy to release inaccurate information. No official from our department would have released the information in question.”

Did O.J. get caught beating it or not? And, will he be released from prison? Sound off in the comments below.
