Where there’s ‘Smoke’ there’s OJ. The 66-year-old disgraced gridiron great has hired himself a fellow felon – Willie Hartwell, aka Smoke – to protect him in prison.
OJ has been worried about attacks from aggressive inmates at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, where he has been incarcerated since 2008.
Smoke is only 44-years-old, he’s 6′ tall, weighs 180 pounds and his physical build is described as ‘large’ on the Nevada Criminal Identification Demographics records. And he’s prepared to watch OJ’s back for a few favors.
‘Obviously, OJ can’t give Smoke any cash money but since he still gets bucks from his books every month through his family and from his female fans, Smoke tells OJ what he wants from the commissary — extra food, toiletries, stamps to send out letters, magazines – and OJ will get it for him!
Rumor was that ‘someone in the prison found OJ attractive.’ The DA told him the prison officials reported back ‘We know nothing about THAT!’ — but their tone was very tongue-and-cheek. When Fred pressured the DA and asked ‘what does that mean?’ the DA responded; ‘it means exactly what you think it means.’
Goldman said the DA gave him the impression that OJ had, indeed, been sexually attacked.
Normally, guys named “SMOKE” are good for protection or weed, either way OJ will be locked up until at least 2017.
