Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez Fights In Prison
Aaron and another inmate had it out on Feb. 25, at the North Dartmouth jail where the former New England Patriots player is being held as he awaits trial on murder and weapons charges for the murder of Odin Lloyd, 27, of Dorchester, Mass.
Bernie Sullivan, a spokesman for the Bristol County sheriff’s department, confirmed Aaron’s role in the attack, saying he “was involved in an altercation with another inmate” at the Bristol County House of Correction and Jail, The Boston Globe revealed.
“Neither [inmate] was seriously injured,” Bernie added. The spokesman refused to comment further because the incident is still under investigation.
It was not clear if Aaron will face criminal charges in the alleged fight with the inmate, which the spokesman said unfolded in a special unit where the former tight end is being held with a small group of other prisoners.
Aaron Hernandez Faces Possible Criminal Charges For Prison Fight
Aaron is charged with murder and weapons violations in the June death of Odin. The victim’s body was found near Aaron’s large estate in North Attleborough. Aaron has pleaded not guilty to all charges and is being held without bail.
Additionally, Arron is being investigated for possible involvement in a July 2012 double homicide outside a nightclub in Boston’s South End. However, no formal charges have been brought against the former Patriot in that case. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 16.
