((A fitting ending to another dramatic day in the Simpson civil case. Judge Hiroshi Fujisaki announcing that he is dismissing a juror on Tuesday, reportedly for misconduct. This on the heels of a very tough day for OJ Simpson. Plaintiff's attorney Daniel Petrocelli picked up where he left off on Friday, grilling Simpson about the cuts on his left hand...cuts Simpson says could be blamed on a broken glass in his Chicago hotel rooom. He also suggested that his son Justin might have scratched him while the two were wrestling. And while Petrocelli hammered away at Simpson's credibility, the defendant troed to stay calm even as his alibi seem to evaporate. Petrocelli quized Simpson about virtually every move he made during the 86 unaccounted for minutes on June 12, 1994 when Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were killed. Simpson again insisted that he was resting at his Rockingham estate or in the shower at the precise moment the murders took place. In past interveiws, Simpson has said he was hitting golf balls around that same time. By far the most dramatic and compelling testimony came at the end of the day. Daniel Petrocelli said point blank... Petrocelli: "You confronted Nicole and you killed her." Simpson: "Uh, no, Mr. Petrocelli, that's totally, absolutely incorrect." Petrocelli: "And Ron Goldman came upon you unexpectedly when you were with Nicole...he was trying to stop you." Simpson: "I didn't know Ron Goldman." Petrocelli: "...you left him to die Mr. Simpson, with his eyes open looking right at you." Simpson: "That's not true." LIZ MULLEN/CBS NEWS: SIMPSON WILL AGAIN TAKE THE STAND TUESDAY MORNING IN WHAT IS BELIEVED TO BE HIS FINAL DAY IN THE WITNESS BOX.
