Report: Aaron Hernandez Arrest "Likely"

The FOX Boston station now has a helicopter following Aaron Hernandez's white SUV. Watch it here. (ABC5's helicopter feed is here.) Today has circus potential.

11:35: He drove to Gillette Stadium. The helicopter won't leave. Local news is the best.


12:35: Hernandez has left the stadium. When he stopped for gas he was swarmed by reporters.

Minor traffic violation. We'll stick with this all day if we have to.

1:10: There's now a report that Hernandez was involved in a May 18 incident at a Providence nightclub. According to WLNE, Hernandez was taunted by a Jets fan at Viva, and police intervened. During the incident, police observed someone discarding a handgun.

This is different from a June 6 incident outside Karma nightclub in Providence, about which no details have been released. Then there's the lawsuit filed by a man who claims Hernandez shot him at a Florida strip club.


1:15: Hernandez just pulled into a parking garage at the Prudential Center. Fox notes that Hernandez's lawyer has an office in the complex.

1:25: Having lost track of Hernandez, the ABC helicopter is desperately swiveling its camera, zooming in on every white vehicle it sees. It's sort of sad.


Hugh Douglas weighs in. Thanks, Hugh.

Dude!! Aaron Hernandez has been driving around for a solid 30 mins..... If he's not guilty he's really weird

2:05: ABC News is reporting that police arrived at Hernandez's home today armed with a warrant based on information that "he destroyed his home security system," and the cell phone he handed over to investigators was smashed into pieces. Additionally, a professional cleaning service was hired to clean Hernandez's home on Monday.


2:35: Here's the police report for the shooting of Alexander Bradley, the man suing Hernandez in Florida. There is no mention of Hernandez in the report—Bradley is repeatedly noted as being uncooperative and refusing to answer questions.


3:10: The Herald reports that no warrant has yet been issued for Hernandez's arrest. But SI's source calls an arrest "likely."

4:10: A good question:

Why was Aaron Hernandez at Gillette Stadium? Unclear. Coaches are on vacation, executives weren't present. It was a ghost town mostly
