Stories of Aaron Hernandez’s checkered past continue to surface on a daily basis as he sits at the Bristol County House of Correction wondering what the future will bring. We knew Hernandez failed drug tests in college and hung out with some shady characters, but the more we learn about him the easier it is to see why he slipped to the fourth round of the draft.
On Tuesday, TMZ released two separate reports about past instances where police had to be called because of incidents allegedly involving Hernandez. The first reportedly involved a domestic incident a year ago with his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, at Hernandez’s rental home in a beachside community in Los Angeles.
TMZ cited law enforcement officials who claim a neighbor in Hernandez’s Hermosa Beach community called the police to report that Aaron and Shayanna were “fighting.” When officers arrived, Jenkins reportedly told them she was OK and did not want to press charges. The sources also said police went to the home several times for noise complaints and that Hernandez “acted like and a**hole.”
In the second report, sources reportedly told TMZ that Jenkins called the cops on Hernandez at the same Hermosa Beach home after he allegedly punched a window and cut his hand badly enough that “there was blood everywhere.”
According to the source, Hernandez and his buddies had been partying from 4 p.m. to 9 a.m and Jenkins wanted the party to end. Law enforcement sources said Aaron “had no regard” for anyone who complained about his parties. TMZ also noted that Hernandez’s neighbors have used the word “nightmare” to describe him.
Considering both of these incidents are said to have occurred within the past year, it doesn’t sound like Hernandez was as grateful for his $40 million extension with New England as he claimed he was. The Patriots had to have known about some of this stuff, and I’m sure the thought of buyer’s remorse crossed their minds on at least a few occasions.
