Former New England Patriots end Aaron Hernandez was tight only in his gratuity on June 17, 2013, the night of Odin Lloyd’s murder.

Evidence introduced in court on Thursday showed a receipt from the South Street Cafe in Providence that Hernandez and his friends visited that night. The prosecution gave the receipt as evidence because they want to delineate exactly where Hernandez was on the night of the murder and how his emotional state may have affected his behavior.

The receipt showed Hernandez’s party stayed at the bar for roughly two and a half hours; the tab was opened at 9:37 p.m. and closed at 12:18 a.m. Prosecutors have stated that Hernandez met Lloyd roughly two hours later. The party consumed 11 Hennessys, 2 Grey Goose vodkas, 7 Bud Lights, and 10 Sex on the Beaches; despite partying for two and a half hours, Hernandez, who signed a 7-year, $39,582 million cintract in August 2012, tipped only 12%.

A bar manager said in court on Thursday that Hernandez was smoking weed outside; when she asked him to refrain from doing so, he did. She also stated that Hernandez looked as if he was having a good time, and led a toast to Father’s Day.

Other evidence introduced on Thursday included a surveillance video that showed him dancing near a gas pump as he fueled his rental car roughly an hour before Lloyd’s murder. The same video showed a co-defendant with a white towel wrapped around his shoulders; police found a white towel near the body of Odin Lloyd after the murder in an industrial park close to Hernandez’s home.
