(Newser) – OJ Simpson has managed to get himself in trouble again—from behind bars. After lunch, guards spotted the former football star, in a Nevada jail for armed robbery, concealing something under his prison outfit, according to the National Enquirer. Turns out there were more than a dozen cookies underneath, Gawker reports. "OJ just stood there with a goofy grin on his face as the guard kept digging inside his shirt and throwing the cookies on the floor," says the Enquirer's source.

Simpson has been urged to cut down on sugary foods due to diabetes, the Daily Mail notes. But "the temptation of the cookies in the prison chow line was too much for him," says the source. "When the guard started pulling cookies out of OJ's shirt, the other inmates started laughing so hard they nearly fell over." His punishment, per the Mail: just a warning.

Lets stuff all the cookies in his mouth. If they fit, we must convict. You know that nothing the law does to him would equal the carnage he caused. I love how in every picture he looks like a sad little falsely accused child. Ooh, look at me, I'm innocent, and you're hurting my feelings. How could you be so mean. Hey oj, go pound sand, or maybe have your cellie do it for you.

The world would have been and will be a better place without him. Being a big jock star erases all the pain he has caused in the world. Oh, I forgot he gets a free pass for past accomplishments, pay no attention to the two dead people.
