O.J. Fans Benched

Two Miami-Dade (Fla.) police officers who posed for snapshots with O.J. Simpson after responding to a 911 call last week have been placed on desk duty and now face an investigation. Field Training Officer Ralph De Jesus, 42, and rookie trainee Lonnie Allen, 29, have been relieved of patrol duty, Detective Vanessa Cook said Thursday. The officers met Simpson, 52, on Sunday after responding to a 911 call he placed from his girlfriend’s townhouse. According to a police report, Simpson said Christie Prody, 26, had been on a cocaine binge. Simpson later said that was a misunderstanding, and he had placed the call on behalf of one of Prody’s friends.
