Report: Aaron Hernandez attacks another inmate in jail


The fairly significant legal portfolio of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez could be growing by a case.  Or two.

According to TMZ, Hernandez attacked another inmate in the Bristol County Jail on Tuesday.  Per the report, Hernandez “beat the guy up pretty good.”  (Rocky Balboa apparently was reporting from the scene.)

Hernandez normally remains apart from other inmates, ostensibly for his own protection.  It was the other inmate who needed the protection.

TMZ explains that the other inmate had been jawing all day with Hernandez.  And then, coincidentally, the same inmate who was jawing with Hernandez was in a hallway where Hernandez happened to be walking.

It’s funny how thing like that sometimes work out.

Jail officials have not yet confirmed the reported attack by Hernandez, who is imprisoned without bail in connection with the alleged murder of Odin Lloyd.

    I for one am shocked.

    No commesary for 6 months. Way to go bud. Lips are going to be chapped for some time.

  3. rundmc20 says: Feb 25, 2014 5:57 PM

    And there it is. We all knew this was coming.

  4. phillycannon says: Feb 25, 2014 5:57 PM

    lol, inmate got what was coming to him. tried to call his bluff and got rocked lol

  5. thevikesarebest says: Feb 25, 2014 5:57 PM

    That’s what most people want to do to Shehawks fans.

  6. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 25, 2014 5:58 PM

    Justice is blind. For as long as it takes to let things work out, at least.

  7. blackandbluedivision says: Feb 25, 2014 5:58 PM

    This guy will never see the outside world.

  8. slugbaitspace says: Feb 25, 2014 5:58 PM

    Apparently, the other inmate was unaware that the Hernandez-related body count continued to increment after he was arrested.

  9. jvw1982 says: Feb 25, 2014 5:59 PM

    I knew Hernandez would be bubba,

  10. beavertonsteve says: Feb 25, 2014 5:59 PM

    In a lot of these sitautions it isn’t a coincidence that guards allow two fueding inmates to be in the same hallway.

  11. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 25, 2014 5:59 PM

    “So, big boy, let’s see how tough you are without a gun in your hand…..”.

  12. officialgame says: Feb 25, 2014 6:00 PM

    There goes his chance for the Good Citizen of the Year award. What a slug!

  13. kd75 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:01 PM

    Two things never happened again after that. The Sisters never laid a finger on Aaron again… and Boggs never walked again.

  14. hor2012 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:01 PM

    I once worked as a corrections officer. The rules behind bars are a lot different than the ones we abide by. He probably has to do that to get respect in jail.

  15. culturecesspool says: Feb 25, 2014 6:02 PM

    Just let his cell door open magically at 3 am…. issue solved.

  16. thepftpoet says: Feb 25, 2014 6:02 PM

    Notice how this never happens with the Vikings?

    The best franchise in all of sports.


  17. shogunassasin30 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:02 PM

    Hernandez is scum, but the inmate prob had it coming to him.

  18. dlbpatsfan says: Feb 25, 2014 6:03 PM

    Got to send a message.

  19. jimmyhaffa says: Feb 25, 2014 6:03 PM

    So the guy was smart enough to mouth off to an athletic freak of nature with a known temper on murder charges? Sounds like a genius.

  20. ishallcomment says: Feb 25, 2014 6:03 PM

    someone should ask him if he’s innocent.

  21. FlashPatterson says: Feb 25, 2014 6:04 PM

    I was wondering when (not if) this would happen.. Do they know if he was protecting himself or if he actually attacked the guy? Maybe we should wait for more information.

  22. keltictim says: Feb 25, 2014 6:05 PM

    Hmmm. Hernandez is a pretty big dude. I did a medium bid and it’s true trying to take down a big guy is the quickest way to earn respect, but there’s a big difference between a big dude and a NFL caliber athlete. Speed and size? Yes you can have my lunch tray. I will find a shiv someday but for now enjoy your seconds.

  23. jz3248 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:05 PM

    He wanted that guy as his new beyach and he refused. He was just TCB.

  24. rc33 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:05 PM

    Odin Lloyd lookalike?

  25. pppath says: Feb 25, 2014 6:06 PM

    What a dumb thing to do. Last person you would want to jaw is a suspected serial killer, ex pro football player with a temper to burn.

  28. DaveKShape says: Feb 25, 2014 6:07 PM

    In a strange way it seems like Hernandez was somehow seeking out this life of crime and imprisonment.

  29. diegiantsdie says: Feb 25, 2014 6:07 PM

    Talk sh!t get hit!

  30. scmems07 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:08 PM

    the patriot way

  31. mattwalshvideo says: Feb 25, 2014 6:08 PM

    Bob Kraft was “duped”, he’s totally shocked by this report.

  32. nyyjetsknicks says: Feb 25, 2014 6:08 PM

    He won’t be seeing the outside world again.

  33. ryann252013 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:09 PM

    Riight..the guards just let a suspected murderer wander the hallways alone. I don’t suspect ANYTHING.. the guards were not paid to set this up, no way guys.


  34. phinsfanjoz says: Feb 25, 2014 6:09 PM

    He is who we thought he is.

  35. nobby821 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:10 PM

    This is Awesome.

  36. longislandblitz says: Feb 25, 2014 6:10 PM

    I bet Belicheck framed Hernandez for murder because Hernandez found Out the truth about The Patriots and there cheating ways.True or not it would be a great movie!

  37. sarobs06 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:11 PM

    Peyton Manning:
    Omaha! Omaha!

    Aaron Hernandez:

  38. jeffa43 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:11 PM

    Quit wasting our money, and off the loser.

    He did not care, and neither do we.

  39. thetruthcampaign says: Feb 25, 2014 6:13 PM

    Maybe he’s being bullied, and was just fighting back.

  40. harrycanyon says: Feb 25, 2014 6:15 PM

    At least he didn’t kill the guy. Brightside to every story.

  41. bennyb82 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:16 PM

    He was then seen trying to break into the video surveillance room.

  42. detectivejimmymcnulty says: Feb 25, 2014 6:18 PM

    Just a little advice for those who may not know, it’s not smart to talk smack to a NFLer. Especially one who has more hits on his record than Tony Soprano.

  43. ✦ Pittsburgh is the City of Champions ✦ says: Feb 25, 2014 6:19 PM

    “You get changed by the Bill Belichick way, you get changed by the Patriot Way,” Hernandez said in 2012.

  44. weepingjebus says: Feb 25, 2014 6:19 PM

    If only the league had had a prohibition on mean names when he was playing.

  45. ranoversquarells says: Feb 25, 2014 6:20 PM

    Ticky is still flabbergasted

  46. justintuckrule says: Feb 25, 2014 6:21 PM

    Did Goodell fine him?

  47. teal379 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:22 PM

    So no matter what becomes of the murder trial(s) – he goes down for assault for sure…

    Smart guy that AH…

  48. jermainewiggins says: Feb 25, 2014 6:23 PM

    I want him on my fantasy team hes due for a killer year.

  49. mackcarrington says: Feb 25, 2014 6:23 PM

    If there was any doubt about what Hernandez really is… Pleeze, prosecutors, don’t botch this case. Nobody wants this dude back on the streets!

  50. jayquintana says: Feb 25, 2014 6:23 PM

    This probably brought tears to the eyes of Incognito and Pouncey.

  51. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Feb 25, 2014 6:24 PM

    Walter White has to be behind this convenient setup…

  52. jbaxt says: Feb 25, 2014 6:25 PM

    “Give me 10 minutes alone with this guy…”

    Said no one to Hernandez.

  53. contra74 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:25 PM

    Natural urges never die. Aaron Hernandez and attacking. Green Bay packers and Darren sharper.

  54. doctorrustbelt says: Feb 25, 2014 6:26 PM

    The inmate hernandez beat up was probably an effeminate 130 pound cross dresser.

  55. worshipthewood says: Feb 25, 2014 6:27 PM

    And THIS Jonathan Martin…is how these situations are handled!

  56. dioxinblues says: Feb 25, 2014 6:28 PM

    This guy goes from multi-millionaire with the whole world before him to a guy who will never again walk the streets as a free man. All because of ego. Idiot.

  57. JMClarkent says: Feb 25, 2014 6:29 PM

    Adebisi would like a word with the chap!

  58. drsimester says: Feb 25, 2014 6:33 PM

    Looks like he’s adapting quite well to life on the inside. He’s making himself right at home

  59. green41563 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:37 PM

    He used the quarter-blood technique.

  60. idothis2 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:37 PM

    now we know how he got that contract from Belichick.

  61. idothis2 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:40 PM

    now we know why the Pats waited until after Hernandez got arrested to cut him. they were worried that he would come back Aaron Hernandez style…

  62. pone27 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:41 PM

    Lol some of you guys on here really live iHernandez, x or something or don’t understand prison at all.

    Zero doubt he was more than likely going to get jumped. Hernandez is still on trial, regardless of how insane we all my think he is, he is still trying to not stay in prison.

    Thing is, when you try to jump a guy like Hernandez you better either be bigger or have a weapon. Dude isn’t Jonathan Martin.

  63. vwbrown19 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:42 PM

    Soo they just happen to be in the isolated hallway at the same time. Yeah right

  64. 84smooninlambeaunevergetsold says: Feb 25, 2014 6:45 PM

    Why are most tight ends just straight up criminals?

    Hernandez, Winslow..

    this dude’s done.

  68. dalvar1001 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:49 PM

    At least Aaron is doing something constructive with his time. Maybe he needs to be a guard.

  69. pongonfl says: Feb 25, 2014 6:53 PM

    The guy refused to show him how to use the remote on the DVR

  70. babygaga19 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:54 PM

    Wait for it, this will be explained away (as will the murders) on. . . . . . . . . . . . . Severe Career Concussion Syndrome! You heard it here first.

  71. nflfollower says: Feb 25, 2014 6:54 PM

    Good for him. He needs to settle in and establish himself in his new environment. All the guys on here criticizing him for it would be somebodies new girlfriend within 24 hrs. Hes an alpha wolf bro. It is what it is.

  72. courtjester1234 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:57 PM

    This isn’t very good sportsmanship. I know he didn’t learn that stuff while he was a Pat.Mr Kraft doesn’t approve of this, but Jerry Jones wants to know if he’s available for work release.

  73. kvgrekop says: Feb 25, 2014 6:59 PM

    at least he backs up his talk.

  74. green41563 says: Feb 25, 2014 6:59 PM

    Jonathan Martin attacked him in a pillow fight.

  75. Ferdinand says: Feb 25, 2014 6:59 PM

    Congratulations. You just gave a faltering prosecution something to bolster their case against you – and a new charge to fall back on if the present case falls through.

  76. golfore says: Feb 25, 2014 7:01 PM

    I wonder if the attack was over a couple of Top Ramen’s?

  77. commonsensedude says: Feb 25, 2014 7:05 PM

    I’ll bet the other inmate was wearing a Ravens hat at the time of the attack.

  78. steeltuff says: Feb 25, 2014 7:13 PM

    The inmate made a remark about “Belicheat.” Aaron was only sticking up for his Head Coach.

  79. realitycheckbaby says: Feb 25, 2014 7:15 PM

    If he gets convicted and sent to a real prison he’ll find out he’s not so tough.

    Book it.

  80. onebigredrocket says: Feb 25, 2014 7:16 PM

    So.. I guess I’ll just go directly to TMZ and ESPN for all my NFL updates. This site seems to be just for rehash.

  83. kingpel says: Feb 25, 2014 7:24 PM

    Looks like “inmate” messed with the wrong guy. You can call Hernandez a lot of things, but soft aint one of them.

  84. dumdolt says: Feb 25, 2014 7:26 PM

    Patriot way

    Sounds like a sharpened toothbrush to the groin is in someone’s future very soon.

  88. jw1991 says: Feb 25, 2014 7:41 PM

    upon reading this Jerome Boger’s threw his flag and said “15 yard penalty roughing the inmate, automatic first down…..”

  89. billsmafiaordie says: Feb 25, 2014 7:43 PM

    not only was there surveillance video of the attack Aaron left a chewed up piece of bubbalicious behind in the hallway…cops are convimced hes never watched an episode of CSI

  90. FinFan68 says: Feb 25, 2014 7:44 PM

    If he is still sequestered for safety then this was no accident. Find the guards involved and fire them. There are enough things to worry about without the guards manufacturing drama for their own entertainment.

  91. bigcid10 says: Feb 25, 2014 7:47 PM

    did they do a review on the play

  92. jacobk621 says: Feb 25, 2014 7:48 PM

    Does this fall under the NFL personal conduct policy ?? Just saying !!

  93. sportnorcal says: Feb 25, 2014 7:49 PM

    I bet the Mean Machine are excited to have him for the next few decades.

  94. bigbadben7 says: Feb 25, 2014 7:59 PM

    I was a Correctional Officer for 14 years and I use to tell inmates who ran their mouths at other inmates who couldn’t get to them that other inmates can always get to them sooner or later. That’s because sooner or later these inmates are going to cross paths in the facility out side of the bars or their assigned loction. There is usually only officer escorting each inmate and f the inmate just goes crazy its difficult to get them off of the victim. Being on protective custoday only means you are protected from general population. It doesn’t mean you are protected from other PC inmates you talk crap too.

  95. ariani1985 says: Feb 25, 2014 7:59 PM

    A. Fight back
    B. Become somebody’s b i t c h

    I would choice A so Aaron made the right choice

  103. gymtruthteller says: Feb 25, 2014 8:52 PM

    How did he do it when he isn’t in general population? They have been saying for months he is in solitary

  104. fian2 says: Feb 25, 2014 8:54 PM

    So much for All those TE jokes ,
    about him getting raped etc.
    Now i know why Pats didn’t release him even they knew details much ahead of public.
    They were afraid and did it after arrest ,
    they know what’s he capable of

  105. grilldoggy says: Feb 25, 2014 8:58 PM

    Go Pats, Go!

  106. jetslakersfan says: Feb 25, 2014 9:04 PM

    I love how people want to jump on Aaron. I did some time and it a whole different world in there. A man talk crap to you u have to kick his ass or at least try. You get no respect if u just let a person mouth u on the inside. In the joint respect is all you have.

  107. uglydingo says: Feb 25, 2014 9:10 PM

    Aaron Hernandez’ status and respect amongst inmates just just jumped 66%. He can handle himself and is not afraid. Give him a little time and he could excel in this environment.
    He put up with Tom Brady’s petulant verbal abuse for years and was not allowed to fight back. In comparison this is easy.
    Looking forward to seeing his Gator buddy Mike Pouncey soon. Thanks for all of the prayers, Tim Tebow.

  108. thraiderskin says: Feb 25, 2014 9:11 PM

    Hey, at least the attack didn’t include a broom handle.

  109. Ed Bandell says: Feb 25, 2014 9:25 PM

    “Hello! You PLAY to WIN the GAME!”

  110. @Cereal_22 says: Feb 25, 2014 9:25 PM

    Isn’t this one of the first things you are supposed to do when you go to prison ?

  111. patriotinvasion says: Feb 25, 2014 9:27 PM

    To think this guy caught a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl from Tom Brady 25 months ago and now he’s reduced to stories like this. All he had to do was not kill people and he could collect millions and play football on the biggest stage. Still smh.

  112. npr772013 says: Feb 25, 2014 9:29 PM

    Even if the guy is a murderer or a criminal, what is he supposed to do if someone goes after him? Get beat up? I can bet that this was the work of a guard who witnessed the other guy jawing him and some how arranged for the 2 to cross paths…

  113. dirtdawg54 says: Feb 25, 2014 9:35 PM

    Two thoughts running through my mind,

    A) There are some real funny folks on this forum – thanks for the laughs folks

    B) I am woefully unprepared for prison life.

  119. riverhorsey says: Feb 25, 2014 10:34 PM

    When Hernandez gets to prison he won’t be Bubba anymore he will be Betty.

  120. usdcoyotesfan says: Feb 25, 2014 10:45 PM

    I hope it was Golden Tate.

    After the Packers-Seahawks game last year:

    Tate: I know I had the ball.
    ESPN reporter: Did you push off?
    Tate: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Go steal some donuts, Golden.

  121. jayniner says: Feb 25, 2014 10:51 PM

    Wonder what this guy said to Hernandez?

    Boy, you sure do gotta purty mouth.

    What? Wheres all the “he went in as a tight end but is now a wide receiver comments”?

    Oh, a 6’2 nfl athlete can hold his own in a fight.. want to see my shocked face?

    Hernandez is a perfect fit for the Oakland Raiders.

    Is anyone surprised by this news?!
    Best part of the article is the Rocky Balboa parenthetical! Cracked me up. Thanks Mr. Florio!

  134. crazey2011 says: Feb 26, 2014 9:47 AM

    I’m not one to make excuses for people’s behavior, especially not someone who is all but convicted of murder, but I find the escalation in his aggressive and violent behavior telling. I wonder if anyone has considered whether or not he took one too many hits playing ball and may have Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or something similar. We’re seeing it in a lot of combat vets who have been in IED attacks etc. where their personalities change, they become increasingly aggressive and violent and so on. Just a thought. Hernandez is clearly where he belongs, and even people with TBI are competent and have the capacity to make choices, but I wonder if there’s not something physiological going on with this guy. Add to that the prison “dog eat dog” culture and he’s likely to rack up a few more charges as the bravest of the dumbest keep trying to test this guy.

  135. joharris1322 says: Feb 26, 2014 10:00 AM
