O.J. Simpson's best pal from high school. Football teammate in college and the pros. Gatekeeper at Nicole Simp son's funeral. Pilot of the Bronco up a freeway and into O.J.'s driveway. Provider of the welcoming bear hug as Simpson returned home a free man. Same driveway. "My name is A.C. You know who I am, goddamn it!" And it will be a long time before the world--or the Highway Patrol officer at the other end of that tense cellular phone call from the fleeing Bronco--forgets.

The leisurely chase--carried live on at least three local television stations--averaged about 50 mph.
