The man who Aaron Hernandez allegedly shot in in the face, resulting in him losing an eye, will tell his story to the grand jurors on Wednesday. He told the Boston Globe about the changes to his life as the media coverage around Hernandez intensifies.
“It’s been crazy, man, but I’m pretty good at hiding,” Alexander Bradley said about the media attention he has received.
“Whatever chance that I would say something, even a 1 percent chance, went away when a photographer took a picture of my daughter,” he said, shaking his head.
Bradley was in court on Tuesday on a separate drunk-driving charge. That incident, which resulted in his arrest, occurred in late January and Aaron Hernandez was in the car.
According to the police report, he yelled out at one point, “Trooper, I’m Aaron Hernandez; it’s OK.”
That would’ve happened weeks before the incident that he will share with grand jurors.
According to the Globe:
“Bradley filed a civil lawsuit in Florida against Hernandez last month, alleging that Hernandez, whom he had considered a friend, shot him in the face Feb. 13 after the two men left a Miami strip club.”
“While driving toward Palm Beach, Hernandez pointed a gun at Bradley and fired, either intentionally or through extreme negligence, the lawsuit alleges. Bradley lost his right eye and required several surgeries.”
