LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Former Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti says prosecutors didn't know O.J. Simpson had been taking arthritis medication before trying on the famous ill-fitting glove at his double-murder trial.

Garcetti told ABC's "Good Morning America" Thursday that Simpson was told stopping the medication would make his hands swell and his joints stiffen.

Garcetti also says prosecutors Chris Darden and Marcia Clarke were never supposed to ask Simpson to try on the bloody glove during his 1994 trial.

He says the defense may have "baited" the pair into making the request.

Simpson attorney Johnnie Cochran famously told jurors after the exhibition that "If it doesn't fit you must acquit." They did.

Garcetti says he learned about the arthritis medication while watching the new ESPN documentary: "O.J.: Made in America."

Simpson currently is serving 33 years in Nevada for armed robbery.
