And like everything else in his life lately, it’s for all the wrong reasons.
According to reports, Hernandez was allegedly involved in a gang-related fight at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, the prison in Connecticut where he has started serving his life sentence.
A law enforcement source reported Hernandez agreed to be the lookout for another inmate, who went into a third inmate’s cell to begin a fight, which was supposedly gang-related.
Prison officials allegedly disciplined all three inmates for the fight, which wasn’t Hernandez’s first brush with the law while incarcerated. While awaiting sentencing a year ago on his conviction in this case, Hernandez got into a fight with another inmate in the Bristol County Jail.
And as if that’s not enough, things may soon go from bad to worse for the former gridiron star.
He’s facing a trial for a double murder that took place in 2012, and was recently indicted on yet another charge – this one, witness intimidation – after allegedly shooting a witness to that double murder two years ago.
The former football stud probably ought to play nice in prison and make more friends and less enemies! He’s going to be there for an awful long time…
