The Hall of Fame football player left Lovelock Correctional Center with an unidentified driver at 12:08 a.m., Brooke Keast, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Corrections told The Los Angeles Times, saying simply: "He is out".

Before his release, 70-year-old Simpson expressed a desire to return to Florida, but implied that the state's attorney general did not want him there.

Why the early release?

The Nevada Department of Corrections released a photo and video of his departure on their Facebook page.

Simpson served nine years of a 33-year sentence for a botched armed robbery and kidnapping.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of murder charges in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, and her friend Ronald Goldman, 25.

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, pretty much the entire island of Puerto Rico is dark, hot and running out of supplies - quickly. President Donald Trump waived laws forbidding foreign ships from transporting goods between US ports and Puerto Rico Thursday.

According to the Associated Press, Simpson was with close friend Tom Scotto after being released from prison. I am sorry things turned out the way they did.

"I had no intent to commit a crime", he said. I don't think anyone could have honored this institution better.

"There is no doubt he is going to Florida", Simpson's Attorney Malcom LaVergne said.

Simpson also plans to get an iPhone and get reacquainted with technology that was in its infancy when he was sent to prison in 2008, his attorney said.

Lavergne said his client will eventually live in Florida although he's not certain when.

"I do not know where he's going".

Numerous national media outlets had reporters on the scene awaiting the release, but apparently Simpson was able to avoid the glare of publicity with his early morning release.

In July, Simpson was granted parole on the remaining counts for which he was convicted stemming from a 2007 Las Vegas robbery.

In July, the former football star went before the parole board, and after being called a "model inmate", it was decided he would be released.
