In a time before professional athletes were regulars on the nightly news for all the wrong reasons, former NFL running back O.J. Simpson made headlines after being accused of killing his ex-wife (Nicole Brown Simpson) and her friend (Ronald Goldman). When Simpson failed to turn himself in, an all-points bulletin was issued for his arrest. As he was spotted driving his white Bronco in Orange County, the most memorable low-speed car chase in history began.
Networks instantly began covering the chase live as the NFL hall-of-famer was bobbing and weaving his way through traffic like he used to do during his playing days. This all transpired during a time when shock TV was king, and millions were glued to what could have been a bloody, deadly situation. The time for voyeurism had arrived in America, and O.J. led the charge.
