Source: Former NFL star involved in prison fight
Aaron Hernandez got life sentence after murder conviction
Convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez is in trouble once again, getting mixed up in a prison fight, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the incident said Tuesday.
Hernandez allegedly agreed to be the lookout for another inmate who went into another prisoner’s cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center.
Those two inmates got into a fight Monday, the source says, believed to be gang-related.
All three men are being disciplined over the incident, including the former professional football player, who was put in a special management section.
Christopher Fallon, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Department of Correction, declined to comment, saying regulations forbid divulging information of that kind about inmates.
On Thursday, a judge may set a trial date for Hernandez’s double-murder trial in Boston for deaths that occurred in July 2012.
