Charges That Led To Aaron Hernandez’s Arrest Still Unknown


In case you missed it, New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested this morning at his North Attleborough, Mass. home. That, however, is about all we know.

It isn’t clear as of this moment why, or for what charges, Aaron Hernandez was arrested. We won’t know what Hernandez is being charged with until he appears in court, presumably for arraignment.

There are several charges that could be brought against him aside from murder, like obstruction of justice. However we won’t know what exactly he is charged with till later today. The judge sealed the records as well so there is no way to guess looking at what search warrants executed at Hernandez’s home yielded.

As FanSided editor Josh Sanchez said: “of course, let’s all remember to reserve judgement and let the legal system do their job. Hernandez remains innocent until proven guilty.”
