Aaron Hernandez in third prison fight, put in solitary confinement
Former New England Patriot star tight end keeps getting himself in trouble while serving a life sentence for first-degree murder.
It’s safe to say that former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez is one bad dude who does not play well with others.
For the third time since last February, the former star tight end wound up in a scrap with an inmate, earning himself a timeout in solitary confinement in his permanent home at Souza Baranowski Correctional Facility in Shirley.
There were no injuries reported from the brawl, which took place on Thursday. In May, Hernandez was involved in a fight by acting as a lookout while other inmates duked it out in a cell in the Shirley facility. He also got in trouble for punching an inmate while he was housed at Bristol County House of Corrections in February 2014.
At 25, Hernandez was building a potential hall of fame career. He had signed a $41 million dollar contract and was on the receiving end of one of, if not the, greatest quarterbacks in the history of the game.
Instead, Hernandez was sentenced to life without parole for the murder of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old man who was dating Hernandez’s fiancee’s sister and would regularly hang out with the NFL star. A jogger found Lloyd’s body in an industrial park not far from Hernandez’s North Attleborohome in June 2013.
He is also said to have shot Alexander Bradley in the face, taking his eye, after Bradley mentioned “that stupid stuff you did in Boston,” in February 2013.
Bradley was referring to yet another shooting that took place outside of a nightclub on Shawmut Ave. Hernandez is said to have shot and killed Daniel de Abreu and Sairo Furtado, and wounding three other people in July 2012.
