Ex-con O.J. Simpson may be able add another title to his villainous resume: “Crime Family Head!” Sources tell RadarOnline.com the disgraced NFL great’s daughter Sydney is dating a Florida man with a criminal past who was charged with hit-and-run!
Robert Blackmon, 28, was busted after ramming his 2002 Cadillac into a ditch, and then slinking away!
What’s more, according to a Florida state accident report exclusively obtained by Radar, the incident followed a night of apparent bar-hopping!
“Blackmon said he was returning home from the 600 block area of W. Tennessee street heavily populated with bars and turned onto Domingo Dr.,” the report stated.
In a twist, the 2009 criminal charges didn’t stop Blackmon from running for a city council seat in St. Petersburg!
Blackmon — who also sold property to O.J.’s son Justin — initially brushed off concerns his Simpson connections would hurt his run for office.
“If that’s the will of the people, that’s the will of the people … I hope to keep the campaign to the issues,” he said, adding, “The entire Simpson family are great people.”
But days later, Blackmon denied dating Sydney, calling her only “a good friend.”
Despite that, Radar discovered a Blackmon campaign sign in 32-year-old Sydney’s front yard — and photos of the pair together!
Blackmon lost the election in September.
As for the hit-and-run, according to the accident report, an “unknown individual” called a towing company around 2 a.m. to report a vehicle in a ditch.
Police found blood inside the unoccupied car and outside on the passenger door.
Cops finally caught up with Blackmon at a hospital. He admitted to the accident — and coming from an area known for bars.
He was found guilty of leaving the scene of a crash, careless driving and failure to report the accident, and ordered to pay a fine.
Now, local officials are wondering why he got off without a blood alcohol test.
“A breathalyzer should’ve been given. It is strange. This is not common,” said a Leon County Clerk’s official.
