Video of the Day: It's been 15 Years Since the O.J. Chase

Yes it's been 15 years since O.J. hopped in his white bronco, and tried to elude the police. Of course he was be chased by the police because his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman were found stabbed to death outside of the Juice's condo. Also what was amazing about this chase, was that there was an NBA Finals game being played at the time. During game 5 of the NBA Finals between New York and Houston was interrupted to show the chase.

The whole ordeal is crazy when you think about it. The bronco chase was just the beginning. The criminal case was a circus with a cast of characters that movie script writers can only dream about creating.

First you have O.J.'s legal team. Johnnie Cochrane was the lead lawyer. He will be always remembered for this infamous line "If the gloves don't fit, you must acquit." Then you had Robert Kardashian, you is more famous because of his daughters. The juice could have fielded an entire football team with his legal team. Which was what exactly what Simpson needed and he got what he paid for. I mean he did get acquitted.

You also had Kato Kaelin living in the Juice's house. He was a key witness.

You had Ron Goldman's father, Fred, who looks like Yosemite Sam.

And who can ever forget the racial tension of this trial. Because the juice is an African-American, the black community rallied behind him. And because both Nicole Brown and Goldman were white, the Caucasian community rallied behind them.

Whether you believe O.J. was guilty or innocent of the crime, it doesn't matter. The chase and trial will live on forever.
