O.J. Simpson questioned in connection with Vegas break-in

Update at 11:04 a.m. ET: The local Fox affiliate says it interviewed a man who claims to have witnessed the incident that sparked the investigation.

Thomas Riccio, who says he works for an auction house, says "a customer had contacted him recently and said he had personal items that had belonged to O.J. Simpson. The customer claimed to have confiscated the items from Simpson because Simpson owed them money ... Simpson, perhaps believing the items were still rightfully his own, walked into a hotel room at Palace Station on Thursday night along with several other people and reclaimed the items in question, Riccio said. Simpson did not use force when entering the room and was unarmed, and never acted violently during the ordeal, Riccio said."

Update at 11:20 a.m. ET: Police are now identifying Simpson as a "suspect," according to the AP.
