Murderer Aaron Hernandez Involved in Prison Fight

The Associated Press

Convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez is wasting no time getting acclimated to his new home at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center.

On Monday the former New England Patriot allegedly served as a lookout for a fellow inmate who entered another prisoner’s cell to brawl. Hernandez’s involvement, in what CNN reported as a gang-related fight, landed him in a special management section.

Hernandez sports a “BLOOD” tattoo on his right hand, wore colors and flashed a gang sign associated with the Bristol Bloods in a high school picture, and his alleged “gang activity” scared off NFL suitors to such an extent that the first-round talent fell to the fourth round.

A representative for the Massachusetts Department of Correction, Christopher Fallon, said that regulations forbid releasing further information about the prison incident.

Last month Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of his fiancée’s sister’s boyfriend, Odin Lloyd, in June 2013. Moreover, Thursday, a judge may set a trial date for the former NFL star’s double-murder trial in Boston for deaths that happened in July 2012.

Evidently, Hernandez enjoys a good fracas. An NBC affiliate reported in February 2014, while behind bars at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth during the Odin trial, the ex-tight end got into a rumble with another inmate prompting him to be placed in a more restrictive cell.
