The amount of dirt that is being dug up on NFL-star-turned-accused-murderer Aaron Hernandez is overwhelming. From possibly being involved to murders other than Odin Lloyd’s, to domestic violence, Hernandez’s rap sheet is quickly filling up and leaving little about his character to question.
Apparently, violent behavior is nothing new to Aaron Hernandez. According to a report from the Orlando Sentinel, everyone’s favorite good guy Tim Tebow tried breaking up a bar fight that Hernandez was involved in when they were both playing at the University of Florida in 2007. Hernandez was a 17 year-old freshman at the time.
A waitress at The Swamp bar allegedly brought Hernandez two “alcoholic drinks,” which he consumed but refused to pay for. That’s when Hernandez got into a fight with a bouncer at the bar. Hernandez told police [bouncer Michael] Taphorn got in his face and began yelling at him. As Taphorn turned to walk away, Hernandez punched him in the side of the head.Taphorn declined medical treatment but the next day doctors discovered his right ear drum had burst and the injury would take four to six weeks to heal. When the officer could not find Hernandez immediately following the incident, he interviewed Tebow and Shaun Young.
Hernandez is currently being held on murder charges in connection with the death of Odin Lloyd last month. It has been presumed in certain circles that Hernandez targeted Lloyd because he had information about another double homicide in Boston that Hernandez is reportedly connected to.
It amazes me how people can have the whole world in their palm, and let it slip away because they refuse to give up their old lifestyle. I hope Aaron Hernandez’s situation teaches a lesson to everyone who may end up in similar circumstances, and they know to make the right choice after seeing his mistakes.
