Aaron Hernandez charged with jail scuffle, threat

Jail Fight Leads To Another Hernandez Indictment

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) -- Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has been indicted in an alleged jail assault in February and an alleged threat at the jail last November.

The Bristol County district attorney's office said Hernandez was indicted Thursday on charges of assault and battery and threats to do bodily harm. The statement said the alleged assault occurred Feb. 25 at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, and the alleged threat occurred there on Nov. 1.

Hernandez, who is from Bristol, Connecticut, is being held without bail at the jail after pleading not guilty to murder in the June 2013 death of Odin Lloyd, 27, of Boston. The body of Lloyd, a semi-professional football player dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend, was found not far from Hernandez's North Attleborough home.

Prosecutors said they would have no further comment on the new charges before his arraignment, which has not been scheduled. His attorney did not return a message seeking comment.

The county sheriff has said Hernandez was involved in a Feb. 25 scuffle with another inmate but neither of them required medical attention.

He's finished, the rest of his life will be in a cage. He also threatened to shoot and kill a guard because the guard told him he couldn't take extra food. Yes, threaten to shoot and kill a guard, that will do wonders for your defense freakin' asshat. He's just another adult baby just like Oscar Pistorious who when he doesn't get his way stomps and stamps his feet and breaks his toys, only his toys are human beings now. It's going to be interesting to see what this a-holes attitude will be like when he's 85 and still in jail. He could have been a millionaire for just playing football now he will be nothing more than a drain on taxpayers for the rest of his life.

guaranteed they don’t have any evidence to make the murder charges stick so thats why they are trying these tactics to keep him incarcerated..reeks of desperation by the prosecution.

Is he a tight end, or a wide receiver?
