OJ Simpson's eldest daughter Arnelle knocked her dad to the ground during a family squabble at his Florida home, reports the New York Daily News. Arnelle, 39, was furious at Simpson for dishing out money to boozy girlfriend Christie Prody and shoved him down, according to sources. She called 911 after the fight. Her 61-year-old pop suffered a minor head injury.

"Arnelle had a fight with Christie over Christie's behavior. Christie has some problems with drinking," a source told the News. "That's what started the whole thing. OJ said, 'Don't talk to her like that,' and Arnelle pushed him." When the cops arrived, Arnelle agreed to leave "in order to let things calm down," according to the police report.
