Hernandez arrested

Getty Images

Michael Fee has some explaining to do.

Barely a day after the lawyer representing Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez blasted the media for false reports of an arrest warrant, Hernandez has been arrested.  Presumably pursuant to a warrant.

Per multiple reports, Hernandez has been taken into custody, “cuffed and stuffed” as the police types say it.

The reports regarding the existence of an arrest warrant indicated that the expected charge would be obstruction of justice.  At this point, it’s not clear what he has been arrested for.It is clear that the arrest stems from the Odin Lloyd murder investigation.

Lloyd, 27, reportedly was shot multiple times in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home.

    “obstruction of justice” means the cops “think” he knows something but he refuses to talk.

    Now we get to hear what really happened. Let the fun begin.

    Sayonara…give the Lloyd family some peace. You have a long time to think about the company you keep and how it ruined your life.

  5. myspaceyourface says: Jun 26, 2013 9:00 AM

    I don’t think it gets any better for him. This may be the beginning of the end for A.H.

  6. whatnojets says: Jun 26, 2013 9:00 AM

    Well, I guess he hired the new lawyer at the right time!

  7. aclegend says: Jun 26, 2013 9:01 AM

    What’d he do?

  8. iammrbinky says: Jun 26, 2013 9:01 AM

    Curious as to why a surrender wasn’t negotiated. Normally, high profile cases do have the suspect surrender at the PD unless there is a concern the perp may not show.

    That’s what you get when your lawyer taunts the police, I suppose.

    D.A. wanted him to do a perp walk and not let him turn himself in.

  17. southpaw2k says: Jun 26, 2013 9:05 AM

    As trivial as the business of football is compared to a man’s murder, I gotta wonder what the Patriots are going to do with Hernandez. I saw over the weekend if they chose to cut him, it would cost over $10 million towards the salary cap. Pretty hefty price for them to pay, though severing ties with him may become necessary, depending on the outcome of his arrest and investigation.

    “obstruction of justice” means they “know” he destroyed his surveillance system, smashed his phone, and hired a professional cleaning service on his home hours after a man he was with was executed.

  28. FinFan68 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:09 AM

  31. getyourownname says: Jun 26, 2013 9:10 AM

    So either his lawyer had no idea about the warrant, or he knew and was trying to mislead, oblivious to the fact he would look foolish in very short order.

    Either way, not a promising lead on the outcome of his representation.

  33. trollingforjustice says: Jun 26, 2013 9:10 AM

    Perhaps if he had cooperated alittle with the police,they might have offered him and his lawyer to give himself up instead of coming to his house and taking him unannounced

    Now lets hope the legal system works properly for all involved.

    The Patriots cut a guy because he had diabetes. They have to get rid of Hernandez now. He has much bigger problems than a job right now though.

  44. punkscotty says: Jun 26, 2013 9:12 AM

    Note to self….Jake Ballard….move up fantasy draft list….

  45. thejuddstir says: Jun 26, 2013 9:12 AM

    It’s about time. Unfortunately he has been given a week to “get his story” straight with his accomplices and use some of that $40 M contract to set one of them up for life just to take the fall.

  46. whatjusthapped says: Jun 26, 2013 9:13 AM

    This is the cover that the NFL needs to suspend him from all further football activities until the resolution of all legal matters.

    Apparently, destroying video tape evidence is only allowed inside the Park Avenue offices of the NFL when it benefits the Patriots.

  47. ctiggs says: Jun 26, 2013 9:13 AM

    This guys needs to get his act together.

  48. lemonhead7 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:14 AM

    Saw this coming. Too many pcs of circumstatial evidence not to have him brought in. Obstruction of justice charge will be the least of his worries. He should be more scared of a murder charge. Or a conspiracy to commit murder charge. This guy is finished.

    Bout time. Hernandez knows what happened.

    Now the question is who is gonna be the snitch? I bet his homies will throw him under the bus in a heartbeat if it was indeed Hernandez who fired the fatal shots.

  56. terpfan76 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:16 AM

    Wonder if he has Benjarvis “the law firm” Green-Ellis on speed dial?

  57. dcsween says: Jun 26, 2013 9:17 AM

    Is its so “clear” and do we really KNOW that he doesn’t have a long list of unpaid parking tickets?

  58. Andre's Johnson says: Jun 26, 2013 9:20 AM

    Three reasons Aaron Hernandez’s life as a professional football player (and maybe as a free man) is over:

    1) Marathon bombing; there seems to be a prfound sense of justice and anti-violence in that area of the country right now.

    2) The US Government and NFL are currently touting an extreme anti-gun sentiment.

    3) Too many professional athletes have committed violent crimes and – it would seem – have not been treated the way anyone else might be treated.

  59. kane337 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:20 AM

    I think Aaron’s tshirt sleeves are broken. He couldn’t get his arms through them.

  60. mungman69 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:20 AM

    Hey, he’s innocent until proven guilty in a court of law but that won’t stop the commissioner from dealing with Hernandez personally.

  61. vikes69 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:28 AM

    reset the police blotter

  62. footballfan58 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:36 AM

    As a loyal Patriot’s fan, this just sickens me. This young man was given the opportunity of a lifetime and it appears he has thrown it all away. I am not worried about the Pat’s organization or our football season. That will take care of itself. The bigger picture here is a person was murdered and no matter who he was, his family loved him and he was violently taken away from them. If AH pulled the trigger, he needs to be punished. I do believe in innocent until proven guilty, but if he’s found guilty, he needs to pay. I love my team, but I am totally ashamed of this guy.

  63. zaggs says: Jun 26, 2013 9:37 AM

    Huh, guess a warrant was issued after all.

  64. johnnyb216 says: Jun 26, 2013 9:38 AM

    I hope he had a good meal last night! Could be the last one he ever sees…

  65. rationalitybias says: Jun 26, 2013 9:51 AM

    He knows what happened, and tried to erase any trace of anyone from being with him or in his house that night. Pathetic

  66. rkt4mayor says: Jun 26, 2013 9:57 AM

    This was a no-brainer:

    You don’t destroy your home security system and cell phone unless you’re trying to hide something!

  67. azjohnny says: Jun 26, 2013 10:09 AM

    Isn’t there a good citizen clause in all NFL contracts now, if there is the Pats should be able to get out of the contract with no money owed

  68. niallofthenine says: Jun 26, 2013 10:17 AM

    I didn’t think anybody could make Titus Young look good.

  69. channer81 says: Jun 26, 2013 10:46 AM

    The Pats and Raiders should change uniforms.

  70. tformation says: Jun 26, 2013 10:50 AM

    Well, that’s that.

    Just remember friends, innocent until proven guilty.

  71. patsfan13 says: Jun 26, 2013 10:54 AM

    I don’t think the DA’s office gave Hernandez nor his lawyers any notice of the warrant being issued or enforced. He’d most likely given himself up with his lawyers with him, rather than being hauled from his house barely dressed with TV cameras present. Did they think he was going to flee the country or something with all those reporters outside his house? That being said, if he’s guilty, he gets no consideration of his athlete’s status.

  72. jayniner says: Jun 26, 2013 11:01 AM

    Since when does an arrest equal a conviction?

    Simmer down people….

  74. harrycanyon says: Jun 26, 2013 12:18 PM

    The league needs to look into changing the salary cap hit a team would take in this situation. It’s not fair to the Pats or any other team, that an idiot player arrested for something as severe as murder should count against their cap when they release them.

  75. rajbais says: Jun 26, 2013 12:35 PM

    Our long awaited nightmare is over.

    His will now be starting.

  76. harry1941 says: Jun 26, 2013 1:02 PM

    This Harry again.I don’t believe he commited the murder, but he knows who did it. I think he fears for his life. If he opens his mouth, they’ll kill him.

  77. harry1941 says: Jun 26, 2013 1:05 PM

    I wonder if hollyword make a movie of this.

  78. lanman11 says: Jun 26, 2013 1:50 PM

    He could have went down to the station for this but after the lawyers claims yesterday, they wanted some photo ops of them with Hernandez in cuffs. They probably would have done it this way anyway since it is a high profile case but the lawyers public claims yesterday probably sealed it. It seems like this has been a daily media chess match.

  79. bgm9876 says: Jun 26, 2013 2:15 PM

    couldnt happen to a better guy.
