Report: “Paper” warrant issued for Hernandez

Hernandez Getty Images

Friday’s ping-pong of published reports regarding whether an arrest warrant for Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has, or hasn’t, been issued has culminated in a report from FOX 25 that, indeed, a warrant has been issued.

According to the report, it’s a “paper” warrant on the charge of obstruction of justice.  The warrant has not yet been entered into the law-enforcement computer system, which prevents police from acting on it.

“It may be that this is a squeeze tactic,” FOX 25 legal analyst Brad Bailey said.  “It may be telling Mr. Hernandez that we have a warrant, a warrant for a crime that has a potential maximum penalty of seven years in prison, is a tactic to get him to come to the table, start talking and start cooperating.  And that’s where the lawyers may be saying, OK, we got it.  You got our attention.  We’re willing to respond.”

The charge most likely has been fueled by reports that police believe Hernandez destroyed his cell phone and home-surveillance system.  The goal, apparently, is to cajole someone into telling authorities precisely what happened on the night 27-year-old Odin Lloyd was shot, according to the Boston Globe, multiple times.

Basically, if Hernandez wants to avoid doing time for obstructing justice, he needs to quickly help ensure that justice is done.

    it seems to me that herenandez wasnt the one who pulled the trigger, but helped cover it up.. im sure they were gonna do something with the body but it was found before they could.

    he was one of my favorite players. i now despise him

  2. dannyreneau says: Jun 21, 2013 8:00 PM

    Well, let’s hope he doesn’t read the papers or watch the news!

  3. thebigtim2012 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:02 PM

    Does anyone ever really do time for that? I would think if they wanted to get his attention a murder charge or manslaughter would be much more effective especially if this dude is as rough as its sounding.

    No one is going to talk. They are working together and the longer the cops keep all 3 on the streets the more iron clad their story gets.

  8. bostonian13 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:06 PM

    Reports from Fox news are about as accurate as a Mark Sanchez pass. How about an article when the warrant is actually issued, and Hernandez is arrested?? These back n’ forth articles are pointless.

    Sounds like this guy has taken advantage of a rare opportunity. What an amazing role model

  12. clarencewhorley says: Jun 21, 2013 8:07 PM

    Or everyone shuts up, and without the gun no one is prosecuted.

    If he shot his friend he should go to jail for a long time, if he knows who shot him he should testify and come clean.

    But lets not pretend shutting up is not a viable option especially when compared to the other guys he is a earner.

  13. bluntsmokinskinsfan says: Jun 21, 2013 8:08 PM

    If they do not know what was on his surveillance system or his cell phone, how can they charge him with obstructing?

  14. mauicat1 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:08 PM

    Apparently, the “Patriot Way” is just a useless and bygone slogan that is used at the whim of Patriot die hards. It obviously has lost it’s luster among those like Hernandez, and to some degree, their other hope-to-still-be-the-other-starting-tight end-after multiple-operations, Rob Gronkowski. We can’t convict Gronk of anything but stupidity, of which he is 100% giulty, but it just shows that Belichick and ownership has lost some semblance of control over some of the players that they can’t afford to be without. Let’s see how the “Patriot Way” plays put for the upcoming season.

  15. turdfurgerson68 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:12 PM

    Issue the warrant and arrest him or stop with this nonsensical game playing.

    This is the USA: innocent until proven guilty.

    Lotta comments here are straight outta the gulag.

  16. packerhater says: Jun 21, 2013 8:14 PM

    Why don’t you guys just let us know when hes arrested. We don’t need a play by play on is he or isnt he or if there is a warrent or not a warrent or if there is a paper warrent or whatever. This is getting as boring as the Tebow stories.

  19. thraiderskin says: Jun 21, 2013 8:24 PM

    So… A man who has ties to Hernandez, winds up dead, with a bullet to the head (execution style?) and not far from his body is a rental vehicle in Hernandez’s name, parked fairly close to Hernandez’s home. Also, a neighbor supposedly heard multiple gun shots at 0300-0330 and another witness places Hernandez (and associates) with the victim the night of the murder and some of you think the man’s 5th Amendment is being violated, because the law finally got a warrant for his arrest? Man am I behind the times, I thought with all the circumstantial evidence, that would be more than enough to arrest this guy already. They aren’t going after him because he won’t talk, they are going after him because he (or a leprechaun) broke key devices that might have helped law enforement piece together what happen to the VICTIM (do remember someone is dead). If it turns out that those devices would have caught a murder, he will be facing much harsher penalties than obstruction of justice, trigger man or not, he will be a murderer.

  22. apkyletexas says: Jun 21, 2013 8:26 PM

    Watch as he snitches out his friends in exchange for a light slap on the wrist, and scratches out a quick check with six- or seven- zeroes to the victim’s impoverished family.

    And then ESPN and the football networks call him a “great leader” for the next 15 years.

    Like Ray Lewis.

    Obstruction charges just mean the policy e don’t have anything else to charge him with..Their fishing with no bait..trying to get lucky

    “Reports from Fox news are about as accurate as a Mark Sanchez pass. How about an article when the warrant is actually issued, and Hernandez is arrested?? These back n’ forth articles are pointless.”

    All major cable news is terrible (including Fox), but if you want to go that route, the facts would disagree with you.

    Every major university study done over the last 4 years shows Fox not just more accurate than CNN or MSNBC in the news department but WAAAAY more accurate. So much so it’s not even close.

    Might want to do a little research before you speak next time.

    Funny, since the Patriots are the Super Bowl Champs on “paper” each offseason.

  27. FinFan68 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:30 PM

    All three will eventually talk. #1 will blame #2, #2 will blame #3 and #3 will blame #1. The cops will know at least two of them are lying but absent physical evidence or a complete breakdown by somebody they will not know who and “reasonable doubt” (at least for a potential murder charge) is virtually guaranteed for all three.

  30. ravenmuscle says: Jun 21, 2013 8:43 PM

    Ahhhh… he was an accomplice…..obviously Hernandez destroyed his own surveillance system to hide evidence or a video of what was going on. The cell phone that was smashed was his….calls or texts made on that cell phone can still be obtained or retrieved by court order.

    AND…the guy Hernandez shot in the face has REFILED charges in that unrelated case.

    I think the Pats should be thinking about getting a tight end that isn’t going to be in jail or in the operating room for back surgery or a VERY fragile forearm that keeps snapping.

  32. sdemp says: Jun 21, 2013 8:47 PM

    I agree with “blunts”. . . they keep saying he destroyed his surveillance system and cell phone.

    Since when is it a crime to destroy your own property? Yes, a friend shoot near his house, but I strongly believe, even with today’s technology there isn’t an app for a “real” gun on your phone. And unless his surveillance system was “armed” (no pun intended) I don’t believe cameras come equipped with motion censored guns.

    I could be wrong. . . with that said, he is quilty, but the charge is weak at best.

  33. siggtacular says: Jun 21, 2013 8:48 PM

    The patriots may have won three but lost TWO Super Bowls hahahaahhahaha

  34. annes22 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:48 PM

    He’s destroyed his surveilance system and his cell phone, that’s only for one reason. It’s called a “cover up” whoever the idiot is on here asking. Why destroy it if he didn’t do anything. How about the cleaning crew. What were they cleaning up??? Dog poop or filthy peoples’ mess.

  35. brunmeister2011 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:48 PM

    No problem getting phone records of where he was and when he was talking and to whom. The cops already have that info. Same with the victim’s phone.

    Let’s get Vincent D’Onofrio from Law & Order: Criminal Intent on the case. Bobby can get to the truth! He can get this case cleared up in a day or two. And let’s get the NSA to cough up those text messages. I mean, what the heck are we paying those guys for? This is about FOOTBALL, man!

  36. bostonian13 says: Jun 21, 2013 8:52 PM

    Mrplow3……you must be a republican. Yes all major news networks are terrible, the media period is terrible but none more terrible than Fox News. You’re maybe the only guy in the world to do research for a news network and maybe the only guy to defend Fox News. Please, spare me.

    Once we get Hernandez’s warrant issue all sorted out, can someone please catch me up on where we stand on MJD punching out a night club bouncer?
    Also, I think we are due an update on Dez Bryant’s summer shoplifting urges. It’s been almost an entire year without a status report. It makes it a lot easier for tebowmaniacs to feel good about themselves when you keep the police reports coming in fast and furious from all corners of the country. Thank you.

  38. bigwii says: Jun 21, 2013 8:55 PM

    If hes with the guys who killed him and didn’t come forward immediately hes a murderer, no matter who pulled the trigger. If it is drug related he may face federal charges under RICO ad firearms charges in Federal court. No way the NFL tolerates this. At the very least he’s banned for life.

    Seems simple to me…Hernandez isn’t going to respond to the warrant because he’s involved in the murder. He has nothing on anyone else that doesn’t lead back to him. Arrest him, set bail and pull his passport…then put some cops outside the house and on his tail 24/7.

    They should arrest all three suspects and trial them as together. It won’t be long before the shooter is abandoned by the other two on advise of attorney. They are better off serving less time than a life sentence for murder. How much money that is shared with lazy homies do they think Hernandez is going to give them in the long run. His legal bills will consume his bank account and he can put a fork in his NFL career especially if that Florida situation sticks. Two states, drugs? where are the feds in all this.

  52. lostsok says: Jun 21, 2013 9:21 PM

    “I miss the days when Fifth Amendment rights were valued and respected.”

    You mean when union workers were jailed without charges (see Idaho and Colorado in the 1890s), blacks were murdered without trials (see pretty much the entire South for decades), when kids were shot on college campuses for protesting (Kent State), or any number of instances when police searched without a warrant and some pothead went to jail for years despite any instance of violence. I’m sure I could find hundreds of examples with minimal effort.

    It kills me that people really think our rights have somehow always been sacrosanct.

  53. istateyourname says: Jun 21, 2013 9:22 PM

    If you pulled the trigger, two things are true:

    1) You heard gunshots;
    2) You don’t call the police.

    Therefore – the neighbors did it!

    Aside from self defense there is never a good reason to take somebody’s life. I am willing to bet that when the entire story comes out it will blow our minds at how senseless this killing was. Three people threw their lives away this week probably over some stupid and trivial argument that a normal person would laugh at and walk away from.

    I too have tried posting about that certain Latino gang for the past couple of days and my comment has been deleted. Guess PFT only likes to use it’s own “anonymous” or “unconfirmed” sources. Funny that the public usually knows more than the media but the media always hides behind “sources”. Aren’t the public, “sources”? Guess we can’t be as trusted as the media’s sources.

    Right now Aaron Hernandez is buying his time as he waits for super PR Director Zak Gilbert to finalize the contract that will turn him from villain to hero.

    Zak Gilbert can fix this mess and make you all realize that Mr. Hernandez simply felt it was best for the family of his associate Mr. Odin Lloyd if he destroyed all of the video evidence of his suicide. You see Mr. Odin Lloyd actually became depressed and killed himself, no doubt due to prior concussions. Mr. Hernandez was simply trying to spare his family from the pain.

    I’m going to go out on a limb here, and say that Hernandez pulled that trigger.

    How many of you would go so far as to destroy your home security system, smash your cellphone, and have a cleaning crew come over lickety split before the cops got there, all risking a serious obstruction of justice charge in the process and risking a lucrative career, just to protect a friend who killed another friend ……???

    No, he did all that because HE pulled the trigger, and has the most to lose.

As for the NHL , he gets 1 year from Goddell and gets clotheslined by a Gmen linebacker in yet another lost to NY in the SB. Karma

Not sounding too goo for the Patsy’s if Hernandez is caught up law-breaking activities. I always thought a man was innocent until proven otherwise… so law enforcement demonstrates the use of TOOLS that coerce compliance… hmmm Really??? surprising. hahahaa.

    =======================

    Yeah, you must really smoke some blunts. The point is they wanted to LOOK at his phone and surveillance system because they had reason to believe they may have contained evidence. Anyone with only a piece of a brain could figure out that it wasn’t just some weird coincidence that both just happened to be “destroyed” at the same time. Do you think the cleaning crew just happened to be scheduled for Monday and it was just a coincidence too. If so, then maybe to need to lay off the Blunts for bit, my man.

  82. j0esixpack says: Jun 21, 2013 10:35 PM

    After reading all these comments, it seems clear that Belichick and Kraft signed Hernandez KNOWING he was a potential murderer.

    That’s what sort of evil people they are – and indicative of how far the Patriots have fallen…

    At least – that’s the gist I get from the majority of these comments.

    I don’t know what the laws are in Massachusetts, but in many places all three can be charged with murder and all 3 can be convicted. It doesn’t matter who did the actual killing. They are all guilty because no one snitched out the shooter.

    The truth will come out. If Hernandez was the one who pulled the trigger and one of the guys rolls over on him to get a lesser sentence, it will happen. No one will sit for a life sentence to protect anyone in these times.

    This drama is going to get interesting before it is all said and done.

  85. jeremycrowhurst says: Jun 21, 2013 10:38 PM

    Another factor to consider here is that the police know Hernandez was involved, but they might not know who his two associates are.

    Does the guy with the $45 million contract stay quiet, do a year or more for obstruction, and end his career, to protect the knuckleheads? Or is there a revision to the story, Ray-Ray style, where he gives them enough to charge somebody, but not enough at the end of the day to convict anybody?

    The actual truth is the opposite of what you wrote is actually the truth. Surveys have shown that Fox News viewers are LESS accurately informed than people who don’t even watch TV news at all!

    Looks like you are the one who needs to do a little homework. Look it up.

    Reports from Fox news are about as accurate as a Mark Sanchez pass. How about an article when the warrant is actually issued, and Hernandez is arrested?? These back n’ forth articles are pointless.

    I couldn’t agree more…if it weren’t for Tone in the corner of the end zone, LT’s over the should TD or Brylons slant carring two Pats defenders in for the score.

    ““It may be that this is a squeeze tactic,” FOX 25 legal analyst Brad Bailey said. “It may be telling Mr. Hernandez that we have a warrant, a warrant for a crime that has a potential maximum penalty of seven years in prison, is a tactic to get him to come to the table, start talking and start cooperating. And that’s where the lawyers may be saying, OK, we got it. You got our attention. We’re willing to respond.””

    There’s a reason why he dropped to the 4th round, and it was not talent. This, however, is surprising though. He allegedly shot a man in Feb in Miami, then another man June 6th, and now this. No matter what comes of all this he needs to get rid of his “friends” as we’ll as his guns.

  98. johnnyb216 says: Jun 22, 2013 12:43 AM

    He’s just another stupid punk who thinks he can do whatever he wants. I hope he rots in prison for the rest of his life. Better yet, does new England have the death penalty? Wouldn’t mind seeing that either since he obviously didn’t put any value on the life he seemingly helped take over what was probably some stupid trivial issue like street cred or something like that. Time to send a message to all these young punks that will be heard loud and clear.

    I miss the days when Fifth Amendment rights were valued and respected.

    _________

    You clearly don’t even know what the 5th Amendment does or means.

    It doesn’t pertain to destroying your cell phone, home security system, and cleaning your home after a murder victim was in your home the morning he was killed. Though those are not illegal acts, they are evidence towards the actions of a killer covering his tracks. Which gives PROBABLE CAUSE to the authorities for warrants.

    It also doesn’t allow you to mislead, or lie to the cops. He isn’t being charged (eventually) with obstruction because he won’t tell them what he knows.

    If he were on trial, and excersized the 5th, he would simply not be punished for refusing to incriminate himself which is not an admission of guilt.

    Open a book, read it. Read it again, then figure out how ridiculous your comment makes you appear. Ignorance is not bliss. It makes people like you get on the internet, and state something that is so absolutely stupid it’s just sad.

    thraiderskin says:

    No you are not behind the times my friend, those comments are the result of ignorant fools who talk out their back side.

    Most of them don’t even realize they are probably actually talking about the 4th amendment, but stupid people can’t comprehend their stupidity. Some sort of cruel irony, a dumb person isn’t smart enough to realize they are dumb.

  102. bender4700 says: Jun 22, 2013 1:13 AM

    “This is the USA: innocent until proven guilty.”

    In the eyes of the courts this is true, in the eyes of public opinion, there is not such law nor rule.

    The court system cannot lock a person up on the presumption they are guilty without due process.

    Me, you, everyone else can talk ALL DAY about how guilty this guy is and that is perfectly legal.

    See the FIRST Amendment of Freedom of Speech.

  106. 315judman says: Jun 22, 2013 6:11 AM

    I think Hernandez is done as a Pat. Remember, this is the team that cut a guy because he was diabetic.

    I’m no believer in Karma. But… watching a guy on this team maybe get busted for destroying evidence is RICH!

  107. bullcharger says: Jun 22, 2013 6:38 AM

    Unless he did it or is an accessory. If that’s the case he’ll be happy to fight the obstruction charge.

  108. sjoyner59 says: Jun 22, 2013 7:42 AM

    I think AT LEAST he is a accessory to murder meaning his football career is over as he has his freedom being his top priority right now…..his actions are of a person who has a lot to hide and you don’t have to be Lt. Columbo to see that

    Issue the warrant and arrest him or stop with this nonsensical game playing.

    This is the USA: innocent until proven guilty.

    Lotta comments here are straight outta the gulag.

    ************************

    “Nonsensical” game playing? You mean like “finding facts” and “investigating”? WTH are you talking about – how do you think warrants get issued?

    This IS the USA jackbag: where people on message boards are able to exercise a concept called “free speech”.

    He’ll get his innocent until proven guilty day, but that happens in a place called “criminal court”. This here place is called “PFT Comments”.

    Get a clue.

  110. jetsfan79 says: Jun 22, 2013 8:16 AM

    I would still sign him to the jets, if he killed the guy he probably had good reason, it sounds like it was somewhat thought out so he must have spilled kool aid on the leather or something. Anyway a 5 year 96 million fully guaranteed contract is probably in order here

  111. adm350 says: Jun 22, 2013 8:58 AM

    If you think the articles are so pointless don’t read em. Lol.

    “I miss the days when Fifth Amendment rights were valued and respected.”

    This dude has probably never know someone close that has been raped or murdered. “Self-incrimination”-kind of self-defining, don’t you think??? Innocent people can’t incriminate themselves. But then again, they don’t destroy evidence either. But ill play along. Maybe he spilled milk, was walking and texting and fell down smashing into his home surveillance hard drive.

    And yes, it is a game. A game of what can they prove right now….and it looks like they can at least tie him to the cover up.

    Somebody always talks. So the fact they’re out doesn’t matter. The reason he wasn’t arrested yet is not b/c of it not TD paper not being entered…..that takes 30 seconds. AH is sweating it out right now….probably by design. My guess is if he’s just a by standard , he snitches.

    But AH, remember, snitches get stitches. But don’t worry, you only smashed the cell. It can be recovered. And if not, maybe you can smash the cell phone company too…..oops. Forgot about them?? Uh oh.

  112. jmsieli says: Jun 22, 2013 9:12 AM

    What did Kraft expect, when you have a coach who thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room and who keeps bringing in players like (C. Johnson, R. Moss and list goes on) and thinks he has the ability to take the spots off a leopard, Aaron H. had off field issues, the law of averages is going to catch up to you, Kraft its your ship and you have the last word, CLEAN your house.

  113. cranespy says: Jun 22, 2013 9:13 AM

    Long time Patriot fan…..disappointing but he has worn the Patriot uniform for the last time. He may do time, he may not…..he may be suspended, he may not….but one thing is certain…..he is DONE in New England. The destruction of the security system, the busting of the cellphone and the cleansing of the house are enough. Star player or not….he has crossed the line with the organization. Mr Kraft and Coach Belichek have already moved on…..look for another move to bring in a another receiver option. Tebow will def get reps at HBack and now possibly tight end.

  114. swagger52 says: Jun 22, 2013 9:18 AM

    Watch as he snitches out his friends in exchange for a light slap on the wrist, and scratches out a quick check with six- or seven- zeroes to the victim’s impoverished family.

    And then ESPN and the football networks call him a “great leader” for the next 15 years.

    Like Ray Lewis.

    This is NOTHING like Ray Lewis

    There was nothing premeditated with Ray Lewis or Ray Lewis’s friends.

    There was no gun, there was especially no past, present or future of Ray ever using a gun.

    The Police and the DA never wanted to charge Ray with anything because they had nothing. They only kept him for obstruction of justice because they wanted to cover up all the violence in that part of Atlanta – which has since been demolished it was so bad. It has been admitted now, Ray was a scapegoat for Atlanta politicians – look it up.

  116. tsizzlesucks says: Jun 22, 2013 9:28 AM

    OK, somebody help me out here. What I don’t get is that the police have said that the man was killed where the body was found. So what’s the big deal being made about a cleaning company “scrubbing” his house on Monday? Wouldn’t the cleaning people have told police if there was blood on the premises? And, why would there be blood there if the guy was killed elsewhere? And, why would he leave his car at the crime scene? Nobody is that stupid!
    Sounds like a big nothing except it’s a pro athlete. And if they had a case, he’d be spending the weekend as a guest of the state.

    ummmm…. What? Aaron could remain silent. He has that right, as done anyone. However, his silence will probably land him in prison for obstruction. The man clearly has committed a crime (obstruction at the minimum, as well as destroying evidence). He has his 5th amendment rights just like you or me. It would just be foolish at this point for him to remain silent. He is implicated in a murder. WAKE UP.

    The people who think the 5th Amendment has been violated by charging someone with obstruction of justice for destroying evidence are about as depressing as the people who think the 1st Amendment gives them the right to post whatever they want on a web site comment section.

    I’m pretty sure Thomas Jefferson would be reconsidering this whole independence thing if he knew how little thought would be applied to his concepts.

  122. getyourownname says: Jun 22, 2013 12:46 PM

    And yes, I know Madison and not Jefferson primarily wrote the Bill of Rights, but Jefferson was Madison’s mentor and chief advocate for such a document. Consider it artistic license.

  123. tedmurph says: Jun 22, 2013 12:53 PM

    The study cited that Fox news viewers are less informed was done by Farleigh Dickenson U. It was only an informal poll that at first just polled people in NJ. It was later amended to a nationwide poll, where it did in fact show Fox viewers were the least informed. Moot point anyway, because it speaks nothing to the accuracy of Fox reporting. Still waiting for that major university study that says Fox reporting is more accurate than CNN.

    The 5th and 14th Amendment also contain due process clauses. If the NFL suspended Hernandez, thus preventing him from making a living until the authorities arbitrarily concluded that he has done everything he can to help them(as Florio threw out there), it would be a violation of his rights to due process, life, liberty, etc. Remember, nobody has been charged with anything yet, bad as it looks. The police haven’t even told anyone what happened, other than a body was found.

    I am in no way defending Hernandez and look forward to the day the Pats cut ties with him. All the things that came out recently indicate he sold the Pats a false bill of goods about changes in his lifestyle that led them to invest in a contract extension.

    Just a few thoughts:
    What was the time of death according to the coroner?
    How many bullets struck the victim? How many shots were “heard”?
    When was the surveillance system destroyed, or last in operation, according to the monitoring company?
    When was the cell phone destroyed, or last in use, according to the phone carrier?
    When was the cleaning company contracted to “clean up”?
    What did the cleaning company “clean up” according to the cleaning company?

    Since when is refusing to speak a reason for obstruction; isn’t that the reason for the 5th Amendment?

    The press has created such an inflammatory buzz and bias about this crime that Mr Hernandez’s guilt or innocence is already determined in the public’s mind.
