Report: Aaron Hernandez likely to be arrested

Aaron Hernandez AP

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is now considered likely to be arrested in the investigation of the death of a man described as his associate, according to a Sports Illustrated report.

It is not clear what the charge against Hernandez is expected to be, but the Sports Illustrated report says that law enforcement authorities believe Hernandez’s involvement in the death of Odin Lloyd is significant enough that an arrest is likely.

Shortly after the Sports Illustrated report was published, Boston Globe reporter Wesley Lowery wrote on Twitter that no arrest is imminent. Lowery added, however, that that does not mean Hernandez won’t be arrested.

Massachusetts State Police searched Hernandez’s home on Wednesday, and a car that was rented under Hernandez’s name has been referred to as a key piece of evidence into the death of Lloyd.

In a separate matter, Hernandez has been sued by a man who says Hernandez shot him in the face. And Sports Illustrated reports that Hernandez has been connected to two other incidents involving guns and police, although he was not charged in either of those incidents.

    I’m looking forward to the police chase during tonights game 7 of the NBA finals.

  2. faulkner22 says: Jun 20, 2013 12:58 PM

    The media are doing a great Nancy Grace impression and convicting him even before an arrest warrant has been issued.

  3. tokyosandblaster says: Jun 20, 2013 12:59 PM

    But I thought the Patriots were going to win everything because of the two amazing tight ends they have. Don’t these people understand that the Patriots and their players are above the law?

    According to Peter Wilson of WBZ-TV, Hernandez was named in the police report from an incident at a Providence night club in May. He provides a few more details about the incident:

    the patriots are the circus at least nobody on the jets killed some one, i wonder if hernandez went to tebow to admitt his sins

  8. polapea says: Jun 20, 2013 1:00 PM

    He’s going down. At a minimum it looks like he’s facing obstruction and conspiracy charges, I think he’s gonna get ht with a murder rap. Pretty hard to explain leaving a bar with 3 other guys and arriving home with 2 then the third turns up dead.

  9. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Jun 20, 2013 1:00 PM

    I think it’s time to knock Aaron down a few notches on my fantasy football cheatsheet.

  10. kja22 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:00 PM

    He’ll be cut soon

  13. fireemblem6 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:00 PM

    Until an arrest is made, or what the charges are, hard to say what will happen to him. But it is not looking good by any means. With conflicting reports, everything is just speculation until something official comes out.

    I hope he signed up for the insurance on the rental or he’s in a world of trouble…

    Guilty until proven innocent

  20. vertskate900 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:02 PM

    He’ll be calling Ray Lewis soon for “advice.” Then if he’s able to get off with a minor “obstruction of justice” charge, he better make sure the Pats win the Super Bowl and that he is instrumental in that championship run.

  21. kingjoe1 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:02 PM

    I say he goes with “cleaning the gun and panicked” argument or they were playing russian roulette.

  22. 2ndaryinsanity says: Jun 20, 2013 1:03 PM

    Wow…you mean the police might have given Hernandez special treatment? If they had previously arrested him, they might have prevented a murder. I hope there’s a full investigation to determine if there was police misconduct. It really pisses me off when celebrities and athletes get special treatment. Don’t get me wrong, the murderer(s) shoulder the blame for their actions. I’m just saying there’s a possibility this loss of life could have been prevented

  23. blacknole08 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:03 PM

    What a waste of talent if this is true. He may be talented but he is not above the law.

    If he had anything to do with this then he should suffer.

  24. dragus84 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:03 PM

    what a great 30 for 30 that is

    And just like that… he was gone.

  26. myspaceyourface says: Jun 20, 2013 1:03 PM

    I wonder if he has sought the advice of RAY LEWIS.

    If so, look for a SB MVP in the near future.

    Gronk….out. Welker…..goodbye. Hernandez……jail. That’s a lot of lost weapons for Mr. Brady.

  35. metitometin says: Jun 20, 2013 1:06 PM

    Pathetic to see people dumping on the Pats like this when they’ve been the model NFL franchise for years. Not their fault that they can’t babysit Hernandez every second. They’ve been the best rags to riches story I’ve ever seen. I’ve stuck with the team during the lean years of the 70s/80s/90s only to see them pull off the most improbable Super Bowl win ever.

    People should reserve their sickening vitriol for dysfunctional teams that really deserve it, like the Jets or the Bills or the Titans or the Bengals or the Raiders or the Cowboys. I could go on and on and on but the Patriots are the very definition of a class franchise and people seem to be jealous of success.

  36. ravensfan19 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:06 PM

    But I thought the Jets were the Circus…… Tebow, Gronk and Now Hernandez, I think the Real Circus in Town is the Patriots.

  37. cajunaise says: Jun 20, 2013 1:06 PM

    This is a little beyond Patriots and Jets fan’s bickering people! Don’t think anyone saw this coming unless you maybe had some sort of personal interaction with AH. Crazy!

    No evidence Hernandez killed anyone yet, so slow down. And the Jets aren’t exactly boy scouts – ever heard of Kenrick Ellis and Mike Goodson?

  51. Steeley McBeam says: Jun 20, 2013 1:10 PM

    This isnt a Patriots problem or a fantasy football problem. This is an Aaron Hernandez problem, a human being, and the jokes aren’t very funny.

  52. dgreenfi says: Jun 20, 2013 1:10 PM

    Hopefully he got the premium rental car insurance, which, I believe, covers Homicide.

  53. 40for60alldaybaby says: Jun 20, 2013 1:10 PM

    Wait- the Hoodie just traded A.H. to the Browns for their 2014 #1, #3 & #7.

  54. johnnyballsack says: Jun 20, 2013 1:11 PM

    Wow. Just wow. I find it hard to believe that the Patriots didn’t know about some of these things and helped cover them up and “go away”.

    Aaronthal probably thought he was above the law. Univ. of Florida and the Patriots have been covering for him since he was a teenager. Got away with pulling a gun on a Jets fan, got away with shooting a man in the face. Possibly involved with another shooting in college. Brags about failing many drug tests. Why wouldn’t he think he could murder a guy and get away with it.

  57. aljack88 says: Jun 20, 2013 1:11 PM

    The news media followed him to Gillette Stadium by helicopter around 11:30 this morning. I think the media is hoping for another OJ incident.

    You got that right, Rick Spielman. Looks like Ballard is the new #2 TE.

    This is what happens when someone is involved in two other “incidents” involving guns but is allowed to walk around in society with a tap on the wrist because they can catch a ball or run real fast.

    This guy is a sociopath whether he pulled the trigger or not, and it’s looking more likely by the hour that he probably did.

    I mean, god complexes are exactly borne out of situations like getting away with shooting multiple people and getting away with it.

  66. nonetruerthanblue says: Jun 20, 2013 1:14 PM

    Innocent until proven guilty! However…let’s be honest. The reason why he hasn’t been arrested is because he’s a Patriot.

    It’s truly amazing how if Tony Romo wears a red shirt instead of blue and grey, or Jerry Jones has a boog showing, it’s on the national news, but a tight end for the patriots shoots someone in the face, you don’t hear about it for months!!

    Note to self: draft Jake Ballard in fantasy.

    Second note to self: if Tebow shows up for practice one day wearing a two-digit number that starts with a 4 or an 8, draft him instead.

    it is so wrong to convict him when the car the dead guy was in was rented by him and the dead guy was dating your girlfriends sister and you don’t have anything to say to cops.
    Nancy Grace is all over this.

    Somebody better start splaining to police…..

  90. amanistumor says: Jun 20, 2013 1:24 PM

    It’s OK Aaron, the Golden One Tim Tebow is going to pray for you and your circumstance….

    Too bad his prayers will be that there were 4 accomplices, Tom Brady & Ryan Mallett in addition to the other two.

    Hello starting QB of the 2013 Patsy’s

  91. whatnojets says: Jun 20, 2013 1:24 PM

    SI.com obtained a Providence police report that detailed an incident in which police found a gun disposed under a car after a Jets fan confronted Hernandez at 2:26 a.m. on May 18 on Thayer Street in Providence. The report stated: “Brown Police observed a black male, heavy set wearing a stripped (sic) shirt, discard (sic) a firearm under a vehicle in front of the Karta Bar.” There’s no evidence the gun belonged to Hernandez.

    In 2007, Gainesville police interviewed Hernandez about a shooting that took place late after Florida’s 20-17 loss to Auburn. Hernandez was not considered a suspect in the case. His mother confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel that Hernandez and a friend from Connecticut were in a nightclub near where the shooting took place.

    With each day’s new revelation in this story it gets closer and closer to Hernandez. Ten to one, he gets arrested and charged with the murder. His drop in the draft was because of concerns about his gang connections. Just because he can play football and got hundreds of thousands of dollars does not mean he isn’t a low life scum bag.

    Some more news coming out:

    Hernandez’s phone was turned over to the police in pieces.
    A cleaning crew was at the house Monday.

    Sounds like someone is trying to get rid of evidence.

    The other two incidents that SI found are really loose links. They wouldn’t be on any ones radar if not for this murder of course. Making a habit of being questioned by police is something that certainly is an issue though. He clearly has some darker side that doesn’t show up in NFL Network interviews.

    As a police officer, I can tell you one thing. Once these guys feel the pressure, no allegience will hold one of them from breaking and giving up the truth. It’s difficuly at times to get enough on a single suspect. But when you have 3 people to bounce around life in jail to, someone will crack looking for that decreased sentence.

  143. mazblast says: Jun 20, 2013 2:00 PM

    Since he’s a Patriot, The Great Roger Goodell Himself Live And In Person will defer league discipline “until the legal system has run its course” or some such BS. If Hernandez were a Redskin or Saint, you KNOW he’d already be suspended. But since he’s a Patriot, Bob Kraft will not allow TGRGHLAIP to do anything.

  144. erasmus1111 says: Jun 20, 2013 2:00 PM

    I love the guy saying that the patriots are a “Model Franchise” Yeah, only if by that you mean cheating in every possible way. No SB wins since they got caught cheating. Brady is a great QB. Can’t wait to see what happens when he is gone.

  145. brownsfanincali says: Jun 20, 2013 2:00 PM

    Aaron Hernandez is his own person. Clearly the unfortunate events that are unfolding are easily scrutinized and criticized. But they have nothing to do with the patriots organization, Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, or the “Patriot way” that other people are dragging into this. This wasn’t a team effort nor did Kraft or Belichick order a hit on this guy it’s just easy to attack the patriots organization when something like this happens

    —————————————————-
    The Patriots deserve it as much as any of the other teams, maybe even more. The “genius” is at fault, as he likes to show up everyone by bringing on reprobates, and now it blows up on him. Your improbable SB win was a result of cheating. They are the very definition of fraudulence. That’s why everyone enjoys their emanate downfall, as it is long overdue. Seeing the arrogant brought down is gratifying. Now the fans of those “dysfunctional teams” you chastised in the past get their turn with you, so get used to it. It’s not jealousy, it’s disgust.

    I wouldn’t be surprised that some deal with the devil, or the league, will prop the franchise up for a little while longer, but the writings on the wall. Enjoy

    It’s interesting when the shoe is on the other foot, Pats fans cry foul. Ex. Ray Lewis…the man never went on trial for murder, but Pats fans (and others) have ranted for 12 years that he was a killer regardless. The Patriots, as a whole, have skirted controversy in the past. Hopefully this incident and prior irregularities will tarnish their lofty arrogance.

  162. hatesycophants says: Jun 20, 2013 2:16 PM

    When our nation created the whole “innocent until proven guilty” thing, I have a feeling they were not thinking about the ramifications of the media. It no longer matters if he is guilty or innocent. He will always be labeled a killer, regardless of the facts. The jury just decides if he will live behind bars or at his home.

    Ruh roh, Felger and Mazz show in Boston is reporting that the home security system at Hernandez’ house was smashed, that a cell phone owned by Hernandez was given to the police “in pieces”, and that a team of house cleaners cleaned his house Monday morning.

    If these allegations are true its looking really bad for Hernandez.

  166. eagleswin says: Jun 20, 2013 2:21 PM

    He’s toast. Not even Belicheck and Kraft can bribe enough people to make this go away. The “patriot way” wasn’t to be clean, it was to destroy all evidence.

    ——-

    ABC News reports that Aaron Hernandez destroyed his home security system and cell phone.
    Police are back at Hernandez’s home Thursday with a warrant based on evidence that he destroyed the home security system, which included video surveillance, intentionally. Hernandez also handed over his cell phone to investigators, and it was “in pieces.” Additionally, authorities want to know why a house-cleaning team was hired to “scrub” the 23-year-old’s mansion on Monday. One police official says Hernandez isn’t a suspect, but he “has not been ruled out” and is “definitely not in the clear.” The tight end sure isn’t painting a pretty picture by destroying what could be evidence.

    ~ Tim Tebow, tight end ~

    This is hilarious because Jets insiders said Tebow has some of the worse hands catching a football of any player they’ve ever seen. He’s apparently uncoordinated that way.

    I saw one highlight of him trying to catch a pss in the left flat last season and it was indeed pretty hysterical.

    Tebow has as much chance of being an NFL tight end as I do.

    And suddenly the two tight ends who plummeted in the draft and were both scooped up by Bill Belichick have shown why they dropped in the first place. Gronk is made of glass and Hernandez can’t stay out of trouble.

    At least he got one good Super Bowl run out of them even if the result was a Giants win.

    Summary of what we actually know thus far:
    1) A man is dead.
    2) Aaron Hernandez knew the man.
    3) Aaron Hernandez was seen with that man in the same car when he was last seen alive, along with 2 other people.

    That’s it. It’s enough for him to at least be “a person of interest” for law enforcement to investigate, but it’s proof of nothing. Thus far Hernandez has been charged with nothing, not murder, not accessory to murder, not obstruction of justice.

    All speculation at this point is very premature. Those on this board already declaring him guilty are flat ridiculous. …and making jokes of it and the OJ case are disgusting.

  178. russellbandingo says: Jun 20, 2013 2:44 PM

    The NFL’s all murder team just got a new TE. Hernandez at TE, Rae Carruth, Tommy Kane,and Donte Stallworth at WR, the Juice in the backfield, Barret Robbins on the line, on offense. Defense has Leonard Little, Josh Brent, and Jim Dunaway at DT, Ray Lewis and Jovan Belcher at LB. Mike Vick has been implicated in a shooting but never charged, so this team still waits for a superstar QB to join the squad.

    That said I do admit that I laugh at and thumbs up some of the funnier references involving guys who do or are accused of terrible stuff. Including on my own team.

    What a moron. I don’t blame the Patriots organization. I blame the individual. We all make choices and should deal with the consequences of those choices.

    “Now, another one is looking up to me. I can’t just be young and reckless Aaron no more. I’m gonna try to do the right things, become a good father” Aaron Hernandez after the birth of his daughter in November 2012.

    I have been a Patriots fan since I was 5. I hate the Jets like I hate the Yankees. Today Aaron, I hate you more than the Yankees and Jets times a number I cannot even pronounce.

    This is not rocket surgery people. He lives in a 1.2 million dollar home. He just received a 12 million dollar signing bonus on his new contract. More importantly he just brought a child into this world. Actions speak louder than words, and everything here, 1997 .. February 2013 .. May 2013 .. June 2013 .. says enough.

    You deserve your day in court like everyone else. Hopefully your celebrity status doesn’t affect your judgment (bad or good) in any way, shape, or form.

    You were handed an amazing ability and the whole country gets to watch you dump it down the drain, and for what?

    I am now impatiently waiting for the day the Patriots release you and your contract is dumped and that money is used for a player who deserves it.

    Don’t forget to look in the mirror Aaron. You let down your fans, the NFL, the Patriots, your teammates, the people who depend on you, but most of all your daughter.

    I really hope that both of you are nothing more than trash racist along with anyone else that posted what you thought was funny or gave it a thumbs up. I would rather have you as racist than to be so stupid and insensitive to the fact that a person is dead. But, I get it. Hernandez is Hispanic and judging by the name of the victim he was black. So, there’s no room for compassion. You people sicken me. I only hope that none of your families ever have to endure the loss of a loved one to violence. But, if you do I pray that you would find someone who would be more compassionate than you have been.

    What is wrong with America…..by me
    Here is what is wrong with America and its classless citizens, all who could be on your jury someday.

    Here is what is RIGHT in America……by ME.

    We live in a free society where we have the RIGHT to say what we want about this guy, or anyone else for that matter.

    We, the American people do not have to have proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That is for the 12 men and women that are going to look at the evidence and decide if he spends the rest of his life behind bars.
    As far as we are concerned, unless there is some AMAZING evidence that comes out, he is guilty to us. Just like OJ.
    We have the right to say what we want.

    And when it comes to bashing the Patriots? We have heard for so long how they are the model franchise, when in all reality, they have never done a thing successful without having a dark cloud over it.
    Every Super Bowl? Tainted. The Super Bowl ring? Hilarious!
    Gronkowski having to have surgery, but still finding time to go party in Vegas. Brady, who let everyone believe that he took less money for the good of the team, while all the while it was a lie. Belichick and his coaching tree, who have had a total of 0 success, and proving that maybe when he sucked so bad in Cleveland, it was because he wasn’t cheating. How good would Cleveland be with Brady?
    Anyway, if Hernandez did it, he needs to either rot in jail for the rest of his life, or the death penalty.
    If it was a crime to be stupid, he would be locked up for that as well.
