Yes, Aaron Hernandez has been arrested. Just yesterday, the records were sealed in the Odin Lloyd murder case as a means of calming down the investigation, and it may have been an eerie foreshadowing of what transpired this morning. New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez opened the door this morning at 8:45 a.m. ET surprised and without a shirt on, as police knocked on the door of his North Attleboro mansion and took him in handcuffs.
After speculation that Hernandez would be arrested on a reportedly recently written-up obstruction of justice warrant, Aaron Hernandez has indeed been arrested today. The charges are unclear, but this comes on the heels of his attorney, Michael Fee, stating that the reported warrant was erroneously and irresponsibly reported.
Hernandez is in cuffs, and we’re about to find out more. Whether or not what we are about to hear is true or false is uncertain, and it will be interesting to see if/when authorities give us an official answer. If I had to make a guess, I would say that Aaron Hernandez is done as a member of the New England Patriots organization, because he has cast a poor reflection on this franchise. Hernandez’s involvement with the victim, Odin Lloyd, has been documented, and it is difficult to come up with reasons defending Hernandez. He is innocent until proven guilty, but this arrest and the destruction of potential evidence tell me that he is guilty of something. What he is guilty of remains to be seen, but I fear that it is very likely he was at least an accomplice.
