Aaron Hernandez indicted on assault and battery charges stemming from prison fight

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was indicted on charges of assault and battery and threats to do bodily harm stemming from an alleged assault in House of Corrections in February, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hernandez has been behind bars since July 26th and is facing murder charger stemming from the shooting death of his former associate Odin Lloyd who was murdered in 2013.

According to a report from TMZ :

“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. Officials had placed Hernandez in solitary confinement out of concern he would be a target behind bars due to his celebrity status.”

Doesn’t look like Hernandez will be getting any time off for good behavior.
