According to ESPN.com Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with the first-degree murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from the former New England Patriots tight end’s home.
Just when you think the story of Aaron Hernandez can not get any worse, it does. The star tight end, who was just released from the New England Patriots a few days ago in light of his current murder scandal, lost his Puma endorsement, and is now being charged with murder.
The 23-year-old from Bristol, CT reportedly has been known for brandishing weapons and being involved in gang related activities. He is also alleged to be under investigation for some other murders that occurred in 2012 as of today.
Take a look at the videos of his arraignment below.
The New England Patriots swiftly released a statement on Tuesday regarding the situation with Hernandez and their letting him go from the team saying:
“Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.”
All in all there have been a reported 38 arrests within the NFL since the start of 2013! This is incredible! This is not good and something needs to change fast. It seems as though not enough is being done to teach young 20 somethings how to be men of many means. They go from struggling college students to millionaires seemingly over night and some can not let go of the identity they have had for themselves their whole lives. It’s a real struggle but they need something to help them get through it.
