Former NFL Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson, a former murder suspect and convicted robber, was recently accused of stealing cookies from the cafeteria of Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center.

A source told The National Enquirer that that guards busted Simpson, 66, after he tried to conceal more than a dozen oatmeal cookies in his clothes after lunch.

"Everyone thought he had smuggled in a cell phone or some other kind of contraband, so when the guard started pulling cookies out of O.J.'s shirt, the other in­mates started laughing so hard they nearly fell over," the source said. "O.J. just stood there with a goofy grin on his face as the guard kept digging in­side his shirt and throwing the cookies on the floor."

Physicians told Simpson, who suffers from diabetes, that he needed to avoid sweets and exercise more or his health would continue to deteriorate.

"But the temptation of the cookies in the prison chow line was too much for him," the source told the National Enquirer. "O.J. has been trying to diet since the doctors talked to him, but he loves sweets, and after a few weeks he couldn’t take it anymore."

Simpson got off with a warning instead of an official write-up, which could have affected his prison time.

The Associated Press reported in July that a Nevada judge granted Simpson parole on some of his 2008 convictions for kidnapping and armed robbery involving the holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel. 

The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners cited Simpson's "positive institutional record" for his parole.

Despite the parole, the former football great still faces at least four more years in prison for the charges.

Once Simpson's parole is effective on Oct. 2, he will begin serving the minimum term on four concurrent sentences for using a weapon during the 2007 robbery.

Simpson was acquitted in 1994 for the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman, in a sensational trial that garnered international attention.
