Celebrity GUNMAN ATTACKS O.J. By People Staff Published on March 22, 1999 12:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email O.J. Simpson was slightly injured Tuesday when he struggled with a gunman, Los Angeles’s KCBS-TV reported. Simpson’s hand was cut by the barrel of the gun during the afternoon incident, which took place in Griffith Park after O.J. had played golf. The attacker “came out with a gun and tried to get me to go with him, and we wrastled,” Simpson told the TV station. Simpson also said he bit the assailant during the attack and then tried to chase him in his car. He was talking to Burbank police on his cellular phone at the time, but officers told him to end the chase, he said. Burbank police confirmed Simpson was at their station, but they referred all calls to the Los Angeles police, who are handling the investigation. An LAPD spokesman did not have any information on the incident. NBC News reported that robbery seemed to be the motive for the confrontation.
