J. was suicidal He claims Simpson pulled trigger during chase, but gun misfired By MICHAEL FLEEMAN The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — O.J. Simpson tried to shoot himself in the head during the slow-speed Bronco chase but the gun misfired, his friend and attorney Robert Kardashian told ABC's "20/20." The once- fiercely loyal Kardashian, who recently revealed his doubts about Simpson's innocence, said in the interview to be aired tonight that Simpson was self-obsessed and suicidal on the day of his arrest. After threatening several times to kill himself at Kardashian's Girl Scout attacked while selling cookies By The Associated Press LONG HILL, N.J. — A woman was in jail Thursday, accused of inviting a 9-year-old Girl Scout into her home, dragging her into a bathroom and stifling her screams with a towel. The girl's father and brother, who had been waiting outside, ran inside the house when they heard a scream and snatched the girl, Lt. Michael Peoples said. Veena Thacker, 50, was charged with aggravated assault, criminal restraint and endangering the welfare of a child. The girl was not injured in Sunday's attack. house with a gun wrapped in a towel, Simpsoft slipped away with Al "A.C." Cowlings in what became the slow chase, Kardashian said. "At one point when I was talking to O.J. on the telephone — he was in the Bronco — and he said, 'Bobby, I put a gun to my head and I pulled the trigger, and it didn't go off,' " Kardashian told interviewer Barbara Walters. "Did you believe him?" Walters asked. "At first I thought it was a joke," Kardashian said. "After I hung up, I realized that he was telling the truth." Kardashian, who has known Simpson for 25 years and who may be a witness in the wrongful-death lawsuit, spoke unflatteringly of his old friend, describing him as a spoiled ex-athlete concerned only with himself. Asked if Simpson would have given up his life for a year and stood by Kardashian's side in court — as Kardashian did for Simpson — Kardashian replied, "No, I don't believe he would." Kardashian confirmed earlier reports that Simpson badly failed a lie detector test shortly after the slayings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. "I was devastated," he said. "I didn't know what to believe.... O.J. said, 'Every time I heard Nicole's name, my heart was pounding, I would, I would get emotional and' — that type of reaction." Meanwhile in court, Simpson suffered more setbacks in his civil trial. Judge Hiroshi Fujisaki denied Simpson's request for papers linked to Faye Resnick's stay at a drug treatment center and police documents relating to former Detective Mark Fuhrman. Fujisaki found that Simpson's lawyers filed their requests for the police papers after a court deadline, and the request for the Resnick documents was moot since they had been destroyed. I BUILDINGS.
