LAS VEGAS - O.J. Simpson said Friday that he was just trying to reclaim sports memorabilia belonging to him when he was involved in an incident in which police later named him a suspect.

Simpson told the Associated Press that he had been conducting a "sting operation" to collect memorabilia belonging to him when he was escorted into a hotel room at the Palace Station casino.

Simpson said an auction house owner called him several weeks ago to say some collectors "have a lot of your stuff and they don't want anyone to know they are selling it."

NBC affiliate KVBC-TV reported that a man alleged that Simpson and four other men, one with a gun, confronted him at his Palace Station hotel room.

The incident was reported late Thursday night, Montoya said.

KVBC-TV reporter Angela Martin said a man, whom she did not identify by name, had told her that Simpson and four others had entered a hotel room, with Simpson demanding he return what Simpson said were sports memorabilia stolen from him years ago.
