UPDATED 7 p.m. -- The AP has reported that the third man is Las Vegas resident Clarence Stewart, 53, surrendered Monday at his lawyer's office and police officers took him into custody, Lt. Clint Nichols said.

BREAKING NEWS 6 p.m. -- Channel 8 Eyewitness News is hearing that a third person has just been arrested in connection with the O.J. Simpson incident at Palace Station.

(Sept. 17) -- Former NFL football star O.J. Simpson is being held without bail and is expected to have his first court hearing on Wednesday at 8 a.m. You can watch the court preceding live here on LasVegasNOW.com.
Oesterle says the district attorney must file formal charges by Wednesday and after that bail could be determined. She said at this time, there has not been a request for a bail hearing.
Oesterle said Chief Judge Doug Smith made the decision to hold Simpson without bail because he was concerned that Simpson does not have any ties to the Las Vegas community and he might be a flight risk.
In addition, Monday morning an apparent audiotape of Simpson confronting the men he is accusing of stealing his memorabilia surfaced. The recording was made by one of the men in the room.
The audiotape was released by the celebrity news website, TMZ.com, Simpson is heard shouting, "Don't let nobody out of this room. ...think you can steal my (expletive) and sell?"
Clark County District Attorney said Simpson was likely to face seven felony counts and one gross-misdemeanor count in connection with the alleged robbery in Las Vegas. The counts carry a maximum total of more than 100 years in prison.
Conspiracy to commit robbery, a felony, one to six years in state prison.
Burglary with the use a deadly weapon, a felony, two to 15 years in state prison.
Assault with a deadly weapon, two counts, felonies, one to six years in state prison on each count. Coercion with a deadly weapon, a felony, two to 12 years in state prison.
Robbery with the use of a deadly weapon, two counts, a felony, two to 15 years in state prison on each count plus an enhancement of up to 15 years on each count for use of a firearm.
Conspiracy to commit a crime, a gross misdemeanor, up to one year in county jail.
However, Las Vegas defense lawyer, Tom Pitaro, said it was "highly unlikely" Simpson would face the maximum sentence if convicted.
Simpson's arrest comes one day after police arrested another suspect in the robbery. Forty-six-year-old Walter Alexander of Mesa, Arizona was arrested on several charges, including two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon Saturday night. He was described as one of Simpson's golfing buddies.
O.J. Simpson started his day in an executive suite at the Palms resort wanting to watch an NFL game. But he was arrested at the Palms around 11 a.m. Sunday morning and taken to a Metro substation where he was questioned for several hours. Then, just after 5 p.m., he was hauled off to the Clark County Detention Center.
Video of O.J. Simpson showed him handcuffed and limping, as he was taken from the Metro substation near Oakey and South Decatur. He was then driven by police escort downtown for booking.
At one point, he was heckled by a man calling him "murderer" and yelled something to the effect "you're not going to get away with it this time," as Simpson left in the SUV.
Nonetheless, police officials say Simpson is facing serious charges and if convicted, the Hale of Fame running back faces years behind bars.
Metro Captain James Dillon said, "Mr. Simpson is being booked on five felony charges, Category B felonies. They're very serious felonies. They range, on some charges, robbery with a deadly weapon, from two to 30 years and that's for each count, through the other charges --one to six years."
O.J. says it was stolen merchandise and a sting operation of sorts to get it back. He says no guns were involved, but police say otherwise.
Metro considers this an armed robbery.
Again, O.J. Simpson has been arrested. Another man has also been arrested. But this remains an open investigation, and police are still looking for four suspects who allegedly broke into the room. They are: Clarence Stewart, Michael McClinton, Tom Scotto, and an unidentified white male are still wanted.
