Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez has been arrested and taken into custody by police, for investigation of the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was found shot execution-style about a half-mile from Hernandez’s home.
Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits, was found slain June 17. Officials ruled the death a homicide but did not say how Lloyd died.
Lloyd’s relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee, that the two men were friends and that the men were out together on the last night of Lloyd’s life.
It’s unclear why Hernandez was taken into custody Wednesday before 9 a.m. and put into the back of a police cruiser. He was wearing a white V-neck T-shirt, with his arms inside the shirt and behind his back as he was led from his North Attleborough home. He casually spit into some bushes on his way to the car.
Hernandez was arrested on a state police warrant at about 8:45 a.m. and was being booked at the North Attleborough police station, state police said on the agency’s Twitter account. State police said they won’t discuss the charge against Hernandez until it’s presented in Attleboro District Court later Wednesday.
