When Aaron Hernandez was first sent to the Bristol County House of Corrections and charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd, we heard nothing but positive stories about the way he had been behaving. That hasn’t been the case lately.
On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Hernandez is being investigated for allegedly threatening to shoot and kill a Bristol County jail officer late last year. An ex-inmate who used to share a cell near the former New England Patriots tight end was recently asked about an alleged incident during which Hernandez tried to score some extra food.
According to the report, investigators asked the ex-inmate if Hernandez threatened to kill the guard, said anything about shooting his family, or ever made a noise like a “machine gun round” toward the guard. The ex-inmate allegedly said Hernandez did not threaten the guard but did call him a “bitch” during one heated argument.
In addition, the ex-inmate said that Hernandez was losing a lot of weight in jail and would often try to pull off schemes to get extra food. For example, he said the 24-year-old would eat half of his meal and then put an insect on his plate in an attempt to get a fresh serving. The ex-inmate said Hernandez angered officers by trying to pull the stunts “one too many times.”
Less than two months ago, Hernandez allegedly beat up an inmate who was wearing handcuffs. He was scheduled to be placed in solitary confinement for 30 days after that incident. It’s starting to sound more and more like the former NFL star has not been the model inmate.
