Aaron Hernandez chats with his lawyer Charles Rankin as he appears for a pre-trial hearing at Bristol County Superior Court in Fall RiverFormer National Football League star Aaron Hernandez, charged with shooting a friend to death last year, was involved in a Massachusetts jailhouse scuffle with another inmate that left neither man seriously injured, law enforcement officials said on Wednesday. “There was an altercation between two inmates in our special management unit, and one of them was Aaron Hernandez,” said Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson. “It was stopped very quickly by my staff.” Neither inmate involved in the incident on Tuesday required medical attention, and officials are investigating whether Hernandez or the other man, who was not identified, will face internal disciplinary measures or criminal charges, Hodgson said. Hernandez, 24, is jailed in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, about 60 miles south of Boston.
