OJ Says Girlfriend Not On Juice

O.J. Simpson reportedly called 911 about a domestic dispute - of sorts, reports CBS News Correspondent Julie Chen.

Simpson and his girlfriend, Christie Prody, deny she was the object of a call Simpson made to the police emergency line asking for help finding her after an alleged drug binge.

"We have a problem here," Simpson was heard telling the 911 operator. "I'm trying to get a girl to go to rehab. ... She's been doing drugs for two days with Pedro Guerrero, who just got arrested for cocaine, and I'm trying to get her to leave her house and go into rehab right now."



male voice: "October 10,1999 18:15 hours, complaint desk, position number 1."
Operator: "Where's your emergency?"
Simpson: "We have a problem here. I'm trying to get a girl to go to rehab..."
Operator: "Does anyone need rescue?"
Simpson: "She's been doing drugs for two days with Pedro Guerrero, who just got arrested for cocaine, and I'm trying to get her to leave her house and go into rehab right now."
Operator: "Is anyone hitting anyone right now?"
Simpson: "No, no. It's nothing like that."
Operator: "Does anyone have any weapons?"
Simpson: "No, no..."
Operator: "Does the girl need a rescue?"
Simpson: "No she doesn't need a rescue..."

-sounds of number being dialed-

Simpson: "Hello..."
Operator: "This is the police department."
Simpson: "She left and I don't know what to do about it. I'm frustrated...arrested for having 15 keys of cocaine recently. This girl has spent the last two days doing drugs with him. Me and a friend just came to say you're going into a rehab. She got mad. She just go into her car. She drives a Mercedes...she lives in the...now she's loaded out of her mind...driving around somewhere. I don't have her driver's license number but she needs to be stopped."
Operator: "What color is the Mustang?"
Simpson: "It's white with a black top."
Operator: "Is she black or white?"
Simpson: "She's a white girl."

-pause-

Simpson: "Okay thank you. I have to go to see if I can find her."
Simpson, 52, called 911 Sunday night from Prody's townhouse in southwest Miami-Dade County while the couple argued.

According to the police report, the woman Simpson was referring to is Prody. Simpson told officers the couple argued when he demanded she seek treatment for drugs.

But Prody said she had not been in the apartment at all and that Simpson was trying to get help for a friend, not her.

"Everyone's names and all of the things, it's a total misunderstanding," Prody told WSVN-Channel 7 Monday night. "It had nothing to do with O.J. and I. No problems between the two of us. This is a friend of ours."

In an interview ith the television station Monday afternoon, Simpson said: "There was a disturbance that I thought they should know about. It had nothing to do with me, nothing to do with my girlfriend. So don't go there."

Still, a spokesman for Miami-Dade police told the television station in a release that it stood by the officers' report.

Two police officers went to Prody's townhouse and only found Simpson.

According to the police report, Simpson told Prody he was going to take her to the hospital for treatment. She responded that she would call the police if he didn't leave.

The officers gave Simpson a domestic violence information brochure and left.

Monday morning, detectives from the Miami-Dade Police domestic crimes bureau went back to Prody's home and spoke with her.

"She explained that she was fine and that there was no problem of a domestic nature," said detective Juan DelCastillo, a spokesman. "She showed no signs of injury or impairment."

Guerrero, one of three co-MVPs in the 1981 World Series, was charged with cocaine conspiracy in Miami federal court Oct. 1. Drug Enforcement Administration agents picked him up at his home and accused him of agreeing to put up the money for a nephew to buy 15 kilograms of cocaine.

He posted a $100,000 bail bond pending trial.
