There were reports the other day that New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was involved in a jail altercation. Basically, he got into some kind of scuffle with another inmate.

From TMZ Sports:

“Sources tell us the former New England Patriots tight end — who is usually segregated from the general population — was allowed to take a walk in an isolated hallway but somehow came into contact with another inmate. We’re told Hernandez recognized the other inmate and launched into an attack — beating the other man up pretty badly. Sources tell us Hernandez and the other man had been beefing all day long. One source says the other guy had been harassing Aaron nonstop. Clearly, Hernandez was pissed.”

From the Associated Press, via Turn to 10.com:

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says the former New England Patriots tight end had an altercation with another inmate at the Bristol County House of Corrections on Tuesday.

Hodgson says jail staff are interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video to figure out exactly what happened and determine whether charges are warranted.

A jail spokesman says neither inmate was seriously injured.

Hernandez is also being held in a segregated housing unit with only a few other inmates.
