O.J. Simpson’s famous car chase unfolded on TV screens across the U.S. 25 years ago. The NFL icon was in the back of a white Ford Bronco while his best friend, Al “A.C.” Cowlings, was behind the wheel. Cowlings told cops Simpson had a gun to his head and wanted to see his mother. Simpson was a suspect in the murders of his ex-wife and her friend just days before but failed to turn himself in to police. Simpson was later arrested but acquitted of the murders.
