Dennis Hernandez, the brother of deceased NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez, was arrested last week.

Via TMZ.com, the 36-year-old Hernandez allegedly threw a brick at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.

Attached to the brick was a note: “To all media outlets. It’s about time you all realeyes [sic] the affect media has on all family members. Since you’re a world wide leader maybe you could lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clean it up!”

The note was signed, “Yours truly, Dennis J. Hernandez.”

ESPN, per TMZ.com, told police that an Uber arrived at one of the company’s gates. After it was turned away, a passenger emerged, threw something onto the ground, and then got back in the car and left.

Hernandez was arrested for misdemeanor breach of peace. Police warned him that he could be arrested for trespass if he returns to the ESPN campus.

  1. I guess criminal behavior runs in the Hernandez family. Too bad his brother learned nothing from Aaron turning to a life of crime and his tragic suicide

  2. The family should realize by now you are held accountable for your actions and actions have consequences.

  3. The Hernandez family should get together with Aqib Talib’s family and go bowling. They seem to have a lot in common.

  4. Realeyes? LOL. This guy could be the patron saint of the bonappletea sub on Reddit

  5. Did this guy go to one of those new-fangled grade schools that don’t teach spelling?

  6. Sounds like a cry for help. He’s from the streets, doesn’t know how to get lawyers and PR people to try and get his family some privacy so he went with the method he knows. Sad.

  7. After reading all of the comments I’ll just say what no one apparently noticed. Despite his family tree and his method of delivery, his message is absolutely correct.

  8. What would you do if this happened/your brother did this? You’re alive and you gotta take care of your family. I can imagine feeling absolutely helpless and doing something stupid. Don’t make this a story.

  9. I made the same kind of comment the other ppsters did and yet I don’t get approved. Pft editors what a joke

  10. In all fairness, who among us can’t say ESPN hasn’t made us want to throw a brick. More normally that would be directed at our own TV to make the ESPN stop on it, but hey, you do you Dennis.

  11. Wow, what does that note even mean? That’s some seriously broken English. But nice he went out with a respectful “yours truly”

  12. Dennis would be happier, and stand a better chance of keeping his freedom, by channeling a less resentful deceased family member.

  13. yikes, trash. By the way, “realeyes”? Are we serious? Am I missing something? Because that’s one of the dumbest things ever if he thinks that’s how to spell the word.

  14. Going to be quite a stretch to blame this on CTE and sue the NFL. But I’m sure he’ll try.
