LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas say O.J. Simpson faces multiple felony charges days after an alleged armed robbery of collectors involving sports memorabilia.

Police say the charges against Simpson will include robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary with a firearm -- all felonies.

At least one other person has also been arrested.

Simpson has said he and other people with him were retrieving items that belonged to him. He has also said there were no guns involved and that he went to the room at the casino only to get the mementos.

Authorities say Simpson is being held at Las Vegas police offices pending the arrival of his lawyer.
