OJ Simpson has literally gotten himself caught with his hand in the cookie jar while serving time in prison.

The National Enquirer first reported the incident in which the ex-NFL star, whoís serving a sentence for an incident that occurred at the Palace Station hotel and casino back in 2007 where sports memorabilia was stolen at gunpoint, has been reprimanded for trying to steal more than a dozen oatmeal cookies.

Simpson, who is diabetic, broke Nevadaís Lovelock Correctional Centerís rules when attempting to take the cookies.

MSN reported that Simpson was let off with a warning by the guards, but apparently suffered from the humiliation he faced when left to face other inmates. MSN also reported eating the cookies would have been a direct violation of his doctorís orders.

The National Enquirer spoke to some of the other inmates about the incident. One inmate said Simpson had been dealing with the diagnosis and had been trying to diet to remain healthy, but after a couple of weeks broke down and went on the hunt for sweets.

MSN reported Simpson recently weighing in at around 300 pounds and suffers from high blood pressure.
