Thursday is a big day for O.J. Simpson, as the NFL legend goes in front of the Nevada Department of Corrections Parole Board in hopes of being granted his release. 

But he may have created a sticky situation for himself by masturbating in his cell, DailyMail.com reports

"OJ is facing a disciplinary hearing after being written up for masturbating in his prison cell," the site heard from a source. "He was caught by a female corrections officer making her normal rounds in late June."

Here's a picture of what he probably looked like when he was caught.

Apparently there are rules against self pleasure in the pen. Vice actually wrote about this subject earlier this year and tried answer the question that is no doubt on your mind: Why the hell would it be illegal to rub one out while on the inside? 

Public masturbation (and it's pretty much all public when you're locked up) along with any other kind of sexual behavior is banned in US prisons—kind of a surprise if you figured self-satisfaction was one of those few freedoms the incarcerated could keep.

According to Justin Long, a spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the rule exists to keep inmates and staff safe, since masturbation can be intimidating, offensive, or serve as a precursor to sexual assault or fights. 

It's worth noting that a spokesperson for the prison is denying that Simpson was busted busting one. "It’s total fake news. There is no truth to it,” a spokesperson told the website Law Newz

TMZ is also hearing that there's nothing to this story. "It is against Nevada Dept. of Corrections policy to release inmate disciplinary history to the public," the prison where Simpson is locked up said in a statement. "It is also against policy to release inaccurate information. No official from our department would have released the information in question."

But we'll just point out that Alan Butterfield, the writer of the Dailymail.com story, is the same tabloid sleuth who broke the John Edwards affair story for the National Enquirer.
