Las Vegas police have arrested O.J. Simpson, the former football star acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend, on charges related to an alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia.

The charges against Simpson will include robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary with a firearm. Another man also has been arrested in connection with the case.

Simpson says the collectibles taken were his property and that he and his companions did not have guns.

Ina Jaffe talks with Noah Adams about the arrest.
