(Newser) – OJ left a Vegas detention center today after paying his $125,000 bail and hearing a list of charges against him and his alleged cohorts. His lawyer said that OJ will plead not guilty to all charges, including robbery and kidnapping with a weapon. Simpson, 60, gave up his passport but can return home to Miami or travel throughout the US, CNN reports.

In other OJ news, one of the heist victims was arrested today on a fugitive warrant, and a fifth suspect, Charles Cashmore, turned himself in after being seen in a surveillance video. Thomas Riccio, the dealer who set the memorabilia meeting in motion, said he made an audiotape of the encounter "because I've had problems in the past." OJ can be heard cursing and barking orders on the recording.
