Police are back at Hernandez’s house

AP

Amid multiple reports that police have a warrant for the arrest of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez — and that they’re apparently just taunting him with it — they possibly have decided to swing by and show it to him.

Or maybe to finally bring him to the station.

According to FOX 25 in Boston, police are back at Hernandez’s house.  They’ve visited multiple times since Tuesday, and multiple reports indicate Hernandez eventually will be charged with obstruction of justice.

This time, multiple state police vehicles are present, and investigators have entered Hernandez’s home.

ABC has reported that the arrest warrant will be executed “at some point.”  The warrant arises from Hernandez’s allegedly willful destruction of his cell phone and his home surveillance system.

The NFL has remained silent on Hernandez’s status.  Given that he apparently knows something about the night of Odin Lloyd’s death, the league could (and perhaps should) ban Hernandez from playing unless and until he cooperates fully and completely to the satisfaction of the authorities.

UPDATE 2:00 p.m. ET:  According to Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News, two police dogs have been taken into the house.

  1. Does anyone respect the third amendment anymore?

    Anarchy I tell you.

    When a man destroys his security system, cell phone, and has his home deep cleaned the morning after a murder, that doesn’t mean he’s guilty!

    His 3rd amendment rights have been so violated. Obama did it.

    There, beat all the commenters that don’t know a thing about Law nor the Bill of Rights to the punch.

  2. if this was a regular Joe Blow on the street he’d be in jail already…it helps to have money and elite lawyers, thats the only thing keeping him out of jail right now

  4. Hey Hernandez, let’s see if your boys will be down for you now. Live and learn.

    As for all you fantasy football fans, I recommend you remove Hernandez from your pre-draft listing. He’s going to be absolutely a bust behind bars.

  5. He can smash his phone, scrub his house, destroy his security system but he can’t get the DNA out of the place. Dogs sense of smell is beyond that of which a maid can scrub. If there’s something there, they’ll figure it out.

  6. This dude needs to be locked up. I have no sympathy for someone who ignores the way the rest of society operates and lives violently – presumably using some other set of rules. It’s no way to live. He belongs in jail.

  7. bender4700: I do not understand your point. The third amendment prohibits the quartering of soldiers in one’s home. What does searching AH’s home with an appropriately executed search warrant have to do with the third amendment?

  8. I am not usually one to pipe in on the gun debate. If people have the right to own firearms, that is their right. However, so many people end up destroying their own life or somebody elses before they have ever even see a scenario where they have an opportunity to protect their family from an intruder…

  9. Life long Pats fan here, but if this idiot had something to do with it, then he needs to fess up or suffer the consequences. I don’t think he did it, but he knows who did!

  10. He should team up with OJ for a tv show. America can watch as the two of them scour the earth for the real killers.

    How ’bout you go look up that 3rd Amendment again, sonny

  12. This guy is straight up gangsta and doesn’t appear to give a damn about getting caught. Then again they can’t seem to find anything concrete on him so maybe he is a master criminal after all.

  13. Re: Does anyone respect the third amendment anymore?
    I think you’re thinking of the fourth amendment. Third is quartering of soldiers. Fourth is search and seizures.
    All you need for a search warrant is probable cause. Innocence of a crime doesn’t change whether there is relevant evidence to the investigation on Hernandez’s property.

  14. bender4700: good post lol I am also amazed how ppl get on here and all they can say about this gangsta is “oh I hate his stupid touchdown celebrations” really?? haha

  15. Even if AH didn’t pull the trigger he could still be guilty of the following:

    Conspiracy to commit murder
    Obstruction of justice
    Accessory to murder

    I wonder if the two friends will rat out AH.

  16. indianaviking: I am glad to see we are thinking along the same lines. Perhaps other folks DO know something about The Bill of Rights. I believe our history professor who was lecturing others about lack of knowledge of the Constitution was referring to the FOURTH amendment.

  17. @ rcquinn1972…yep, I think that too. I mean, what’s the point of destroying potential evidence if you’re not guilty.

    What goes around, certainly comes around. It may not be immediate, but it will eventually bite you in the end.

  18. @bender4700

    His 3rd Amendment rights have been violated? He is being forced to quarter soldiers?

    The fact that 19 people like your comment blows my mind.

    If anything its his 4th Amendment, but I am pretty sure they have probable cause and a warrant to search if they were issued an arrest warrant.

  19. @Buffalo Didn’t ya’ll say that after their last scandal? Yet they still keep dominating your division every year…

    ██████████████████████████████

    Or how maybe how “law” and “police” shouldn’t be capitalized. But hey, you’re the expert.

  22. bender4700’s point is that the 5th Amendment to the Constitution (he’s citing the 3rd as a tongue in cheek way of making fun of the people he’s talking about) does not allow one to destroy surveillance equipment or cellphones to stop the police from gaining information in a murder investigation.

    It would be an extreme stretch to call that a double jeopardy situation, unless he was in fear of his life from the other men he was with.

  23. I got my money on Hernandez going snitch and rolling on one of his homies for leniency. I’m sure he’ll try to pull a Plaxico/Vick, but I’m guessing he’ll be a shell of himself by 2016 (Prosecution time plus prison plus any NFL suspension)

  24. Despite this setback the Pats will be right back
    in it and all the other loser franchises will be like WTF
    they lost all their receivers and both star TEs and
    here they are in the AFC championship game…

  25. Does anyone know whats going on with the other guys that were with AH? Are they suspects as well or walking the streets?

  26. Actually you are all wrong, yes the 3rd amendment speaks to the quartering of soldiers (british), and the fourth amendment speaks to the right of a citizen to be secure in their person and home. However both were borne of the Patriot movement in Boston in the early 1770’s. Does anybody see any symbolism here? Just like OBAMA, Holder, and the rest of their ilk claiming the spying on US citizens is justified and requires no warrant, or evidence.
    Football fans can be simple minded, and most of these comments reflect that.

  27. Pretty safe to assume he knows who did it, I agree I don’t think he got his hands dirty. If the reports are accurate of his gang ties then I am sure it has something to do with that, quite frankly of the pats are willing to keep players who have known hang affiliations then they are playing with fire. That draft was a high risk/reward for them. Taking those TE’s … If they are missing those guys and now welker it’s gonna be rough on Brady and McDaniels. Gronk will come back but who knows when the porcelain doll breaks again.

  28. Can we stop the Constitutional Criminal Procedure bull sessions and all admit that this has been by the books so far? No one’s convicted him of anything (he hasn’t even been technically charged). The police are investigating because they found the bullet riddled body of a guy less than a mile fro Hernandez’s house the morning after the two of them were out together. If the police DIDN’T investigate this thoroughly we’d live in a failed state.

  29. descendency: I am not sure of your point about tongue in cheek. The fifth has to do with inappropriate indictment and grand juries, as well as the double jeopardy. I don’t get citing the third and how it is making fun of folks and its relation to the fifth. I think he was talking about the FOURTH.

  31. What exactly are those dogs supposed to be there for?

    Can’t be cadaver dogs, they already have a body. The most those dogs can do is alert to the murder victim’s scent, which we already know he’s been at Hernandez’s house, they were FRIENDS.

    I’m not defending the guy by any stretch, but clearly they don’t already have anything to arrest him on, and are harassing him. As I said, at this point their only hope is that one of the three cracks, and rolls on the others, or some new evidence is found. They haven’t got anything on any of the three to threaten them with, so I don’t see anyone ratting out anyone else.

    Doesn’t mean they’re not guilty, it just means that there’s no proof that they are.

  32. This is a simple intimidation ploy by the police dept to see if he is weak and to determine if they can break him. If they had enough evidence his butt would already be in jail. Instead, the police are leaking the fact that they have an arrest warrant for him and keep on releasing stories to see if they can get him to talk. This is just a hunch but I do not think he is the primary suspect and they are just hoping the fear of him losing his career and freedom is enough to get him to roll on his “friends”.

  33. It sucks because the cops have to be so careful with this one because of all the media attention. This dude definitely did something or knows something about this man that got his head blown off. Sucks he had less rights than this football player.

  34. These dam cops must be Jets fans. Settle this out of court with a couple luxury box season tickets and an old super bowl ring. Around here, people would die for these.

    No, warrentless wiretapping was only done under the Bush Admin by executive order. It was discontinued, under pressure in 2008. The Obama administration in fact says ‘spying’ on US citizens requires a warrant from the FISA Court. Try listening to something other than Fox News and conservative radio.

  36. To those who pointed out to 4700 regarding which amendment applies, thank you, but he doesn’t understand 4 any more than he knew which one applied.

  40. Everyone is ragging on us Patriot fans. LOL

    But guess what? We don’t want this POS on the team any longer either.

    I assure you the Pats will field a competitive team without AH this year.

  41. We are all wasting our time on these comments when our civil rights really are being eroded away. At least we still have football to numb the pain.

    Hahahaha Pro nouns.

    Your English teacher would be ashamed.

  44. I’m starting to have my doubts about this police investigation big time. Day late and a dollar short bringing fricking dogs to the premises now, wouldn’t you think? Is Inspector Clouseau in charge of this one? If AH walks it will probably be because the cops are in way over their heads. And why’s the DA lolly gagging around?

  51. How much proof is needed? Cell phone and home security damaged. Cleaning crew at the house after the murder. Hernandez not cooperating. He will be in jail before the NFL season starts. Hopefully the family of the victim gets justice done.

  52. Okay! Arrest him now!

    He clearly looks guilty of something.

    If he destroyed evidence to avoid trouble he’s a long shot from innocence.

    Then the damn alrm clock woke you up!

    Late…

  55. Never fails. A Patriots thread and the libtards come out.

    Hernandez is toast. He’s already looking at obstruction of justice. He’ll he looking at charges for having an unlicensed firearm when the dude he shot in the face finally starts cooperating with the police. Likely other charges are drug possession and accessory to murder. Then there is the wrongful death suit coming by the vic’s family.

  56. Seven of you should be ashamed. You actually think I was talking about the 3rd Amdt. seriously.

    One of you did it twice! FDUgrad, get your money back. That education didn’t work.

    No fake accounts.

    Just like mocking so many of the stupid idiots that post on these articles. They blame Obama, they say the 5th Amendment is being ignored, and they can’t figure out when someone BLATANTLY is MOCKING the morons?!

    My gosh, it would be even more hilarious if it weren’t so scary at how little brain power is behind some of the postings here.

    Ashamed I tell you.

    Only a couple seemed to have picked up that I was joking.

  57. A human being has died and other peoples lives have changed forever. What more needs to be said. The human condition and loss of control of ones emotions is nothing new. The sadness and tragedy remains the same. One hopes all involved find peace and understanding in the end. All seem so quick to judge.

  58. Obama didn’t create the Patriot Act.

    No amendment has been violated. In this case.

    Those who don’t care about this story can stop opening the articles.

  62. No Belichek stockpiling TE’s doesn’t look so crazy.

    My Dad brought up a good point. Belichek probably went to his coaches and asked two questions.

    1) Will Hernandez play out his contract without doing something stupid?

    2) Will Gronk play out his contract without getting hurt.

    The coaches probably said no to both those questions and the Pats creatively hedged their bets early.

    Your sarcasm in the first post was obvious to anyone with a functional level of reading comprehension. Unfortunately, that effectively excludes a great deal of people on this site.

    The irony in their replies is indeed hilarious.

  65. He’s for now a tight end, but pretty soon he’ll be doing so much receiving that they’ll have to change his position.

  66. I wonder how good the Patriots are going to look without Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski AND Aaron Hernandez.

  67. He will get through this. If he had committed the murder, they would have arrested him already.
    It’s clear they have no evidence linking him to the actual murder. The only thing he’s guilty of is trying to protect his buddies who committed the murder. Stupid, but perfectly understandable. He’s immature, he’s 23 and he’s lived a tough life.

    Too bad the Patriots didn’t take him under their wing and become his Big Brother to protect him more. The same thing happened here in Atlanta with Michael Vick and all his Falcon teammates let Vick sink into the abyss with his dogfighting rather than trying to help him. Vick needed guidance and direction as does Hernandez and it’s too bad no one on the Falcons was man enough to give him some love.

    I expect a 6 game suspension tops. Go Pats! Vick is back on the field and so will Hernandez.

  68. Seems to me if they had enough to issue an arrest warrant they would have picked him up. After all, once such a warrant is issued he is considered a felon.

    Which makes me believe there is no such warrant. They only warrants issued are likely search warrants so far.

    Seems like media hype is confusing this story.

    The fact that they are searching his home again means they do not have enough evidence to actually arrest him.

  69. Let me preface this by clearly stating I loathe the patriots. I think coach Bill constantly and unnecessarily acts like a complete jerk. I find the fact they failed to pay Welker ridiculous, and I think Tom Brady is the fakest player in the NFL.

    That being said, I can not fathom how so many people can repeatedly comment on every story about this situation with, “he’s guilty”, “he should be sent straight to jail” or “he should be suspended for like”. No one outside of the police know any details about the case. How can anyone feel comfortable calling for someone’s head with such limited information.

    Yes he destroyed his cell phone and security system, but that doesn’t automatically mean he shot this guy.

  70. You all do remember why some of those things were enacted under the Bush Administration: Does 911 ring a bell – or have you all forgotten.

  71. Eight posts trying to explain an idiotic post was just sarcasm. Sure, and Hernandez had nothing to do with it. Bender2700, thou doth protest too much, methinks.

    That franchise so far heads and tails above others annually, it’s not even close. The same franchise who lost Brady for a season, and went 11-5 w/a QB who hadn’t started since high school.

    It certainly has that feeling about it.

    Meanwhile, forensics may be hard at work trying to reconstruct data from AH’s busted up video surveillance and phone. The technology to do this exists but they may have to piece things together like the Dead Sea Scrolls.

    I would still like to know why the media is not persuing info about the other two members of the foursome. I guess it’s law enforcement that has a lock down on the info coming out in this story.

    I mean no one is even mentioning the other two guys. At all. Stone silence about it.

  75. I can’t believe so many people are so stupid.

    Let’s break it down: Bender goes on a nonsensical rant about the 3rd amendment, Obama, rights to destroy evidence. Obviously ridiculous comments! Then, in the VERY SAME POST, he said:

    “There, (I’ve) beat all the commenters that don’t know a thing about Law nor the Bill of Rights to the punch.”

    As you should be able to see, if you aren’t a neanderthal, this last sentence was referencing ALL his earlier statements, and observing that similar ridiculous comments were going to be made in this thread by people who don’t know the law or our rights under the Constitution, and he was attempting to “beat them to the punch.”

    Everyone who gave him a thumbs down or called him dumb are really just proving his point about the number of ignorant people on this site. The delicious irony is that the very same people mocking Bender are in fact making his prediction come true. Hah!

  76. Belichick has been stockpiling TE’s, but none of them are even close to the level of Gronk and the killer, er, Hernandez. And last I heard Jake Ballard is “close to 100%” just a year and a half after having surgery. That sounds promising.

    As for Hernandez, it’s funny to hear Pats fans claim he’s innocent and all he did was cover up his buddies’ deeds. Yet ask them about Ray Lewis, whose victims were reported to be looking to rob them, and it’s “he’s a murderer!” Typical.

    The Pats’ ride is over folks. They stopped winning SB’s a decade ago, and it’s evident that Spygate helped them. Brady’s going to be declining within the next year or two and when he goes, so too will Belichick and Ernie Adams.

  77. @bender: the third amendment says: “No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”

    So…uh. …what was that you were saying?”, mr. Knowitall?

  78. So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde.. and that’s what all the cops are doing here.

    Doesn’t take police or dogs to figure out what’s going on here.

  80. “It’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove.” Once he pays his homie to take the fall for murder which will eventually be dropped to manslaughter, he’ll cop-out to obstruction and be on the field halfway in the season if that long. #Reality

  81. unless they come up with concrete evidence he was the shooter this will end up like the ray lewis case. where he agrees to plead to a obstruction case and blames the other 2, who cancel each other out in testimony and everybody walks. it cost ray a pretty penny to pay off the family of the dead guy but he made that up and more with his next contract. but hey he is a stand up guy because he was a great linebacker and found Jesus right?

  82. Many reports of varying degrees of credibility have stated the victim was found were he was killed; that the blood found at the scene of the crime suggests Lloyd died there.

    The dogs are there to either smell a connection to crime scene (ie blood, gun powder residue), or they are smelling for an controlled substance.

  83. Not even the most ardent Pats fan can ignore the gravity of this situation. They usually have some snappy retort to any criticism, but this matter is more serious than Big Ben’s rape allegations.

  84. They’re just trying to rattle his cage. Again, I’m not defending Hernandez, there’s no good reason to destroy the security system and cell phone that’s needed for a criminal investigation, unless you’re trying to cover something up. Still obstruction is hard to prove in this case because it would be hard to prove anything useful was on the tape or cell.

  85. Message to Aaron Hernandez. If you didn’t do anything. But have issues with dangerous associates. ALL BETS ARE OFF NOW DUDE! Tell the authorities everything you know or suspect. Be 1000% truthful. And seek legal/police protection from said associates if you feel in harms way. It’s your only way out man. If you go down and end up in jail you will discover a whole new meaning of the position “Tight End”. So avoid it at all costs.

  86. It is absolutely pathetic how many times bender responded to this. Get a life, dude. And yes, you were being sarcastic in the initial post- but it wasn’t done in a clever or funny way at all, hence why people didnt get your point.

    And the arrogance dripping from every one of your posts (including those from the other accounts you very obviously created) is absolutely absurd.

  87. Gee…usually the police pull up on a single bicycle. Multiple cars…….AND they went inside this time, unlike the last four search warrants when they just wandered around outside aimlessly……..they must be serious now! Give it a friggin rest. If they had something….anything, he’d be in cuffs right now. I’ve seen better fishing off the local bridge.

  88. He will be fine as long as his lawyer uses The Chewbacca defense! …ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, I have one final thing I want you to consider. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!

  89. And BTW! Who gives a rats ass what happens to this dude anyway honestly? This crap happens a 100 times a day and what because he’s an NFL player it’s more important? Lets get back to talking about football!

  90. No wonder football clubs worry like hell what some of their shall we say iffy character guys get up to this time of year. Not an avid follower of other sports in the states but does baseball, basketball and hockey have a problem with current and ex players having problems with guns, dogs and running people over with their autos.

  91. Unfortunately they have a lot of circumstantial evidence, but nothing to tie it all together. There is no crime for damaging your own property. Now if they can find something definitive to link him to the crime and as to why he damaged his surveillance system then he’ll be hooked up. Without that you have a shaky case where someone like him could get a high priced attorney to get him off of the charges. We all know he’s guilty just by his actions, but of what crime? Obstruction is a misdemeanor in Florida, don’t know about up there. I would go with destruction of evidence which is typically a felony in most states at the minimum.

  92. What if the other two guys broke the surveillance equipment and AH’s phone? They were the ones who tried to leave when cops first showed up. They would be the ones who need a rental car, not AH. Maybe AH watched one of these guys shoot Odin and said if you snitch, you’re next. Then did these things AH is being accused of obstruction for or made him do it, or he would be next. Why aren’t these others being talked about?

  93. Only a completely delusional person could believe that Hernandez didn’t kill this man.

    Having said that, he won’t spend a single day in jail because of the power of fame and celebrity.

  94. billicheat will get him out of trouble, as sure as this is a republican web site……

  95. The Pats will release him unless he has an amazing excuse.

    BuuuuuT, at least he can be a hero in Baltimore and then retire as an analyst for ESPN.

  96. He sounds guilty but lets just say Lloyd had a dumb idea, they argued about it, he left and got himself killed. I wouldnt want tapes of that argument around or anything else. Just saying. He sounds guilty of something but give it some time.

  97. I feel like I just sat through my freshman Principles of Government and Politics 101 course taught by the Careerbuilder monkeys.

  98. There were gun shots and there are guns to be found. Im sure a dude like Hernandez has a few guns and in the state he lives, they all have to be registered. Or he is a gang banger with illegal guns and , well, never mind.

  99. I understand “innocent until proven guilty”, the 4th and 5th Amendments and all that, but he–

    –destroyed the home surveillance system;
    –destroyed the cell phone;
    –had the house cleaned specially and professionally the Monday after the incident;
    –has yet to sit down with the police; and
    –has surrounded himself with the inevitable lawyers.

    Sorry, but this reads like he indeed has much to hide and has done something quite wrong. IMO it looks like the HS football hero, the coddled SEC football factory star, the pampered ordinary-rules-do-not-apply-because-I-play-for-a-winning-local-team celebrity, may finally have done something that his celebrity status, his big-man-because-I’m-so-rich owner, and the owner’s pet Commissioner can’t hide.

  100. I understand about what the police are trying to do but How can you accuse someone of obstruction of justice just because he busted his cell phone and destroyed his cameras. they have him guilty before the trial. I have a cell phone and security cameras at my house. I bought them with my money. If I want to destroy them thats my business. He is hiding something I’m sure but you can’t accuse him of it just because he took something down. It makes him look like something is going on but you can’t make him a killer just because he destroyed property of his own. There were other people there. Who’s to say it wasn’t his fiancee that shot her sister’s boyfriend and not Hernandez? Think about it. If you owned something and didn’t want anymore would you just turn it over to the police and let them destroy it?
