LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson is in custody in Florida on allegations that he violated terms of his release on bail by calling one of his co-defendants in a Las Vegas armed robbery case, a court official said Friday.
Prosecutors allege that Simpson, identifying himself as "Miguel," telephoned Clarence "C.J." Stewart on Nov. 16 and expressed frustration with Stewart's testimony at a preliminary hearing, court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer said.
That was two days after a Las Vegas justice of the peace ruled that Simpson, Stewart and another co-defendant should stand trial on 12 charges, including kidnapping and robbery.
Clark County District Attorney David Roger was filing a motion Friday to revoke Simpson's bail, according to a court clerk.
Simpson was to go before a judge Wednesday.
"We understand he's in the custody of his bail bondsman in Florida right now and will be brought to Las Vegas for the hearing," said Elana Pitaro, a clerk for District Court Judge Jackie Glass.
A bail bondsman at You Ring We Spring bail bonds in North Las Vegas declined to comment.
Simpson was freed Sept. 19 on $125,000 bail following his arrest on allegations he and several friends burst into a Las Vegas hotel room and robbed two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint.
Simpson has maintained that he was retrieving items that belonged to him. He and the two other men are scheduled to stand trial April 7.
His lawyer, Yale Galanter, did not return phone messages seeking comment.

The excuses from the prosecution roll...
"The glove didn't fit."
"He was getting back his own memorabelia(sp?)."
"The phone device used in this bail violation was not registered to him."
