OJ Simpson Kicked Out Of Las Vegas Hotel For Drunken Disturbance
Simpson reportedly contacted his parole officer Thursday and underwent drug and alcohol testing, which returned negative results. Sources tell the website that Simpson was chucked out of the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas for being drunk and belligerent.

Guinness says more than 600,000 people are attempting to set records as part of the event. There are no control surfaces for direction, the suit is completely controlled by body movement alone.

Browning said he had to prepare for the attempt by performing core strength exercises so he had the muscle power to balance and hold his position in the air.

Yesterday, a British man broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest speed in a body controlled jet engine powered suit, reaching a speed of 51 kilometers per hour in an experiment conducted over a lake in England. The event this year saw almost 600,000 people around the world trying to set world records and make it into the book.
