O. J. SIMPSON took the world by surprise yesterday, breaking his silence about his trial and unexpectedly quick acquittal. The football star, acquitted of double murder on Tuesday, telephoned chat show host Larry King during a live broadcast to tell his side of the story. Speaking for the first time about his acquittal, Simpson attacked prosecutors and legal commentators for distorting the trial evidence. In the phone call to the CNN TV programme Larry King Live, Simpson said: 'My basic anger is these misconceptions.' The former athlete interrupted the chat show host's interview with his leading defence lawyer, Johnnie Cochran. Simpson, who remained in seclusion at his mansion during the second day of his freedom, also offered a brief comment about his first reunion with his two small children - Sydney and Justin - whom he has not seen since being taken into custody more than a year ago. Before quickly ending the call, he said: 'It's been great.' Mr Cochran would not tell the chat show host whether the reunion had taken place in his mansion in Brentwood, California, or if his client had eluded more than 100 reporters waiting outside to rendezvous at a secret location. Simpson called the show to respond to a woman who phoned to ask about prosecution claims that a shadowy figure seen moving across the driveway of the football star's driveway was, in fact, the athlete returning from an attempt to hide the now notorious 'bloody glove'. He said the testimony from limousine driver Allan Park never showed this, only that there was a person near the front door. 'It was me, walking out of my front door, dropping my bags and going back in,' he said. Simpson's 'dream team' of attorneys claimed their client was packing at around 11 pm for a planned trip to Chicago. Simpson insisted that prosecutors and legal commentators constantly misconstrued the evidence. 'My basic anger is people I've heard say, 'I followed the case, I've heard experts say this was the testimony today' - and that wasn't the testimony today,' he told King. 'Fortunately for me, the jury listened to what the witnesses said and not [prosecutors] Marcia Clark's or [Christopher] Darden's or anyone else's renditions of what was said.' Simpson confessed that many nights he went back to his cell thinking: 'Were they in the same courtroom that we were in today?'
