(Newser) – TMZ has obtained a tape apparently documenting OJ Simpson's attempt to rob a sports memorabilia dealer with several gun-toting confederates. in the six-minute recording OJ spews profanity and repeatedly impugns the rights of the owners to sell memorabilia with his autograph. "You think you can steal my s*** and sell it?" a voice like OJ's repeats several times on the tape. Another voice orders someone against a wall.

An auctioneer who went to the Vegas confrontation Thursday at OJ's request had turned on his digital voice recorder before entering the room. Simpson has been booked on charges of armed robbery stemming from the confrontation in Vegas. Meanwhile, "If I Did It," his thinly veiled confession to the Brown/Goldman murders, is the No.1 seller on Amazon and a potential windfall for the Goldmans, who won the rights as part of a court settlement.
