(Newser) – A Las Vegas judge set bail at $125,000 for OJ Simpson today on 11 counts issuing from his hotel altercation with sports collectors. The former football star entered no plea at today's hearing and was ordered to surrender his passport, the Los Angeles Times reports. His lawyer said Simpson will return to his Florida home as soon as possible.
