Temper, temper............

Quote:
Last March, a distraught Shayanna Jenkins made a frantic 911 call to the Hermosa Beach Police Department at 8:16 p.m. indicating that her fiancé had cut his wrist.

Shayanna Jenkins, fiancée of former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez, weeps in the courtroom after a bail hearing for Hernandez in Fall River Superior Court.

When officers arrived at the luxury townhouse, located a block away from the beach, they first thought the 23-year-old man—later identified as New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez—had tried to kill himself. But the young woman explained that the couple had a fight and he cut himself on glass.

“He was mad and punched a window,” said Hermosa Beach Police Department Lt. Tom Thompson. “He had been drinking. He was injured, so she called paramedics.”

Officers later asked Jenkins if the incident was “domestic.” Hernandez, who was living in the ritzy beach community at the time for training and physical therapy, told them that he punched the window “due to being mad about something else.”

Police were called back to the young couple’s townhouse a week later when a neighbor heard yelling and “things being thrown around” in the house. Officers reported that it was “verbal only” and "female will pack some stuff, male half left and will come back later."

“We showed up and it looked like he had left,” said Thompson. “Obviously there were some issues.”

Meyer breaks silence on Hernandez
Posted by Mike Florio on July 6, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

Five days ago, former Florida coach Urban Meyer previously had nothing to say about former Gators tight end Aaron Hernandez. Now, with mounting criticism of his program in Gainesville as more negative information about Hernandez emerges, Meyer has broken his silence.

“Prayers and thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim,” Meyer, now the head coach at Ohio State, told Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch via text message. “Relating or blaming these serious charges to the University of Florida, myself or our staff is wrong and irresponsible.”
THERE'S MORE TO THE STORY

Wrong and irresponsible??

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe adds another interesting twist to the Hernandez-Patriots dynamics. Hernandez hasn't failed a drug test while with the Patriots, but....................


Quote:
Volin also reports the team had no concerns with Hernandez as a player. ”He showed up to meetings and practices on time, practiced hard, stayed in shape, was very coachable, and starred on the field, scoring 18 touchdowns in three seasons,” Volin writes, citing an unnamed team source.

The only issue, and ultimately it may have been a big one, came from Hernandez’s reluctance to sever ties with his friends in Connecticut. Per Volin, Hernandez would “tune out and occasionally become angry” when a coach or other team employee tried to raise the issue with him.

That makes the decision to sign Hernandez to a $40 million deal in 2012 with a $12.5 million signing bonus even more surprising. It’s one thing to take a fourth-round flier on a first-round talent. But the Pats decided after only two seasons to tie the knot with Hernandez, despite his reluctance to break from folks whom the Patriots apparently believed could get Hernandez in to trouble.

The contact negotiations provided a perfect opportunity to draw bright lines regarding the things Hernandez can and can’t do going forward. The Patriots routinely dictate terms to players and agents; when it comes to free agency, for example, agents and players know that they can pretty much nothing without angering (and possibly alienating) Bill Belichick and company.

At a minimum, Hernandez’s contract could have been constructed to provide better (any) protections for the team, with roster bonuses replacing an eight-figure lump sum that Hernandez earned once he signed the deal. While there remains no plausible or logical way to project murder from Hernandez’s history, the Patriots’ failure to properly guard against a worst-case scenario is stunning, given that they at least had reason to be concerned that something could happen with Hernandez.

Otherwise, they wouldn’t have periodically asked him to quit hanging around with his friends in Connecticut.

~2500 jerseys returned as Kraft states that "If this stuff is true, then I've been duped and our whole organization has been duped." He goes on to reveal some additional interesting facts re. Hernandez and his "vows" to the Patriots

Quote:
Kraft then shared a letter written by Hernandez before the 2010 draft in which Hernandez addressed his alleged use of marijuana at the University of Florida and agreed to biweekly drug tests throughout his rookie season if the Patriots drafted him. Hernandez also agreed to tie any guaranteed portion of his 2010 compensation to drug tests.

"I ask you to trust me when I say you have absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes to me and the use of recreational drugs," Hernandez wrote on the letterhead of the agency that represented him, Athletes First. "I have set very high goals for myself in the NFL and am focused 100 percent on achieving those goals."

The Patriots drafted Hernandez in the fourth round that year, 113th overall, an area where Kraft said the team has taken risks with players in the past.

As for the level of risk with Hernandez, Kraft said, "The only thing I was aware of was in this letter." He added that Hernandez was "putting his money where his mouth was" by agreeing to reimburse the team for part of his contract if a drug test was failed.

In August 2012, as Hernandez entered his third NFL season, the Patriots signed him to a contract extension through 2018 that included a $12.5 million signing bonus and could have been worth almost $40 million.

Kraft said he was told by coach Bill Belichick that after the extension, Hernandez had one of the best training camp performances of any player on the team. When asked whether the Patriots had Hernandez on any "team- or coach-imposed short leash," Kraft said the team wouldn't have signed him to that type of contract if that was the case.

"It obviously wasn't the correct decision," he said.

At the time, Hernandez donated $50,000 to the Myra Kraft Giving Back Fund.

"He spoke to me about wanting to be a role model in the Hispanic community," Kraft said. "... I believed him. ... He knew how to push my buttons."

Kraft pointed to his family's 20 years of ownership, and all the players signed by the club, in saying "by and large, the organization has done a good job."

The Patriots will absorb a $7.5 million salary cap charge in 2014 by releasing Hernandez, which will affect the club's ability to field as competitive a team as desired. While the Patriots could have waited to release Hernandez, and perhaps not taken such a big salary cap charge, Kraft said "principle is more important than money."

"There are big costs, big distractions; everything we don't want happening," he said.

Kraft also said the team also had about 2,500 Hernandez jerseys returned to its pro shop over the last two days, with fans exchanging them free of charge, which cost the club around $250,000. He said the Hernandez jerseys turned in would be "ground up and recycled."

Default Re: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez to be Questioned

Looks like a judge is lifting the gag on lots of info that has so far not been released. Should be interesting.

Quote:
As prosecutors continue to build a case for murder against Aaron Hernandez, they’ll be required to share a lot of the evidence with the public.

According to the Associated Press, a judge on Monday granted a request made by news organizations to lift an order sealing the search warrants issued in the case. The warrants will be released on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. ET, absent a challenge from lawyers for both sides, who wanted to keep the information secret.

Per CNN, the order encompasses the search warrants, the affidavits submitted to support the issuance of the warrants, and documents reflecting the evidence that was recovered.

So, basically, we’ll find out what the police wanted, why they wanted it, and what they found.

The information could be extensive. Most of the evidence disclosed, for example, in the investigation of customer fraud at Pilot Flying J came from the lengthy affidavit submitted in support of the request for search warrants.

It’s a fairly simple process. The Fourth Amendment protects us from unreasonable searches and seizures. (The page apparently fell out of the NSA’s copy of the Constitution.) To overcome that protection, the authorities must persuade a judge that probable cause exists to believe that evidence of a crime will be found during the search.

Quote:
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and former tight end Aaron Hernandez had a tight bond during the player's three seasons with the team.

Hernandez would often greet the owner with a kiss on the cheek and donated $50,000 to a charity created in honor of Kraft's late wife. Kraft said that the former Florida standout volunteered to take biweekly drug tests if the Patriots took a chance on him and that Hernandez informed him on draft night that the first jersey he ever owned was that of former New England quarterback Drew Bledsoe.

“He was a New England kid who was a Patriot," Kraft said of the Bristol, Conn., native. "I thought it was cool.”

So it's no wonder that Kraft says that he and the rest of the organization were fooled if the murder charge against Hernandez is true.

Florida Football's Top Lawyer -- Huntley Johnson Represented Aaron Hernandez and Many Other Gators; NCAA Rules Allow Pro Bono



Quote:
Aaron Hernandez arrived at the University of Florida in 2007 with a few disadvantages: He was far from his home in Bristol, Conn., and was only 17 years old, having graduated early from high school. But because he played for the Florida football team, he had a powerful ally from the moment he arrived on campus: criminal defense attorney Huntley Johnson.

In addition to donating at least $4,500 to Florida's athletic fund since 2011, according to booster-club records, Johnson, a 66-year-old graduate of Florida's law school, has become the go-to attorney for Florida athletes who get into trouble with the law. Over the past two decades, the Gainesville lawyer has represented dozens of Gators players in criminal cases ranging from allegations of misdemeanor assault to felony burglary. So prevalent is Johnson at the side of accused Gators that in a 2009 article, the Orlando Sentinel described him as the football program's "defensive MVP."

Gainesville police records show that during Hernandez's three years at Florida, in which the team won a national championship, Johnson provided counsel on at least two legal matters...

Cops: Hernandez slammed door on homicide detective
Tuesday, July 9, 2013

By:
Christine McConville, John Zaremba

Ex-Patriots star Aaron Hernandez slammed his front door on police and groused about "all the questions" they had for him while probing the execution-style murder of a semipro football player, according to court papers released this afternoon.

Hernandez, using his high-tech home surveillance system, spotted cops approaching his $1.3 million North Attleboro manse on June 18 -- the day after the murder of 27-year-old Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester -- and "became argumentative" after meeting them outside the house, according to a state police affidavit released today in Attleboro District Court.

"Aaron Hernandez then became argumentative with the officers, and asked 'what's with all the questions?,'" state police trooper Eric J. Benson wrote in an affidavit to obtain a search warrant of the home.

When police told him they were investigating a death, he wrote, "Mr. Hernandez slammed the door and locked it behind him. Aaron Hernandez did not ask officers whose death was being investigated nor did he display any outward signs of concern."
