Authorities charge Simpson with two counts of murder. He gets into his infamous white Ford Bronco with friend Al Cowling at the wheel and takes cops on a slow-speed chase. Over 90 millions viewers tuned in to the chase which was being aired on live TV.
Simpson surrendered at his home after sitting in his car for almost an hour and later consulting with lawyer Robert Shapiro and family members inside his house. A .357 Magnum, Simpson’s passport, clothes, a fake mustache and beard, and $8,000 in cash was found in the vehicle.
