FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say an ex-girlfriend of O.J. Simpson has been arrested on a robbery charge.

Lt. Joel Vettel tells The Forum that officers were called to the West Acres Shopping Center Saturday night and found mall security officers holding two women.

Vettel says officers believe that 37-year-old Christie Prody, of Moorhead, Minn., tried to steal the other woman's purse and the two women ended up on the ground. Mall security officers stopped the fight.

In April, Prody was charged with stealing painkillers from a Moorhead couple while working as an in-home nursing assistant. That case is pending.

Prody had a 13-year relationship with Simpson after the NFL Hall of Famer was acquitted in the 1994 slaying of his ex-wife.

A message left with Prody's attorney was not immediately returned.
