It’s time to add a line to Aaron Hernandez’ rap sheet.
According to multiple reports, the former Patriots tight end will be charged with simple assault for a jailhouse altercation with an inmate last week. The two men reportedly encountered each other at a time when Hernandez should have been encountering no one, and Hernandez proceeded to allegedly pummel the other inmate while the other inmate was restrained by handcuffs
Hernandez is being held without bail for the alleged murder of Odin Lloyd. Hernandez also remains under investigation for the 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado. The families of all three victims have sued Hernandez for wrongful death.
Hernandez likewise has been sued by a man who claims Hernandez shot him in February 2013, and Hernandez undoubtedly will face a lawsuit from the inmate he allegedly beat up. The inmate will likely sue the jail for negligence in giving Hernandez the opportunity to beat up the inmate.
