After 9 Years, O.J. Simpson is Released From Prison; Makes His First Statement [VIDEO]

After serving nine years for a Las Vegas kidnapping and armed robbery, an upbeat O.J. Simpson walked out of a Nevada prison with little fanfare early Sunday to start a new life as a parolee.

The former NFL star left prison shortly after midnight local time, and was picked up by a friend, according to Brooke Keast , a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Corrections.
“I told him, ‘Don’t come back,’ and he responded, ‘I don’t intend to,’ ” she said. “He was upbeat, personable and seemed happy to get on with his life.”
Unlike previous instances, where controversy followed wherever he went, Simpson was released in the middle of the night to avoid media attention.
“Our biggest concern was our safety and the public’s safety and not wanting anybody, paparazzi, to follow him,” Keast said. “He left through a big blue door through the front gatehouse and exited quietly. He looked down because he didn’t want to be photographed.”

Just hours after his nine-year robbery sentence ended, the New York Post published a short video of Simpson’s at-times terse interaction with reporters — especially one who asked him what it felt like to be out of prison.

“I’m in a car for the last five hours, so how do I know how it feels to be out?” he asked.

The vehicle he had been riding in when reporters caught up with him early Sunday morning in Amargosa Valley, Nevada, was a white SUV.
