Patriots games will have an extra level of intrigue this year, especially if fans show up wearing Aaron Hernandez jerseys. Or if any of them actually resemble Aaron Hernandez.
According to the Hartford Courant, a brawl erupted at a diner this morning after a patron shouted out, “Hey, Aaron Hernandez!”
A pair of men arrested in the aftermath of the ensuing brouhaha told police they were sitting with Aaron Hernandez’s brother, D.J.
The fight started after the person who yelled “Hey, Aaron Hernandez!” was told to shut up, possibly Brian Cashman-style.
Police don’t actually know whether D.J. Hernandez was in the diner. The Connecticut native is a graduate assistant at the University of Iowa.
