Aaron Hernandez Asserts His Innocence In Letter From Jail

Aaron Hernandez Asserts His Innocence In Letter From JailFormer New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been arrested and charged with the first-degree murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has been denied bail following the announcement of the charges.

‘Not guilty’

TMZ’s latest update on Hernandez shows readers a letter the former Patriots tight end allegedly wrote from jail. TMZ claims that this letter is real, but it’s worth noting that this is just a report:

Aaron Hernandez wrote a pen pal a letter from inside his jail cell, declaring his innocence, saying his murder charges are God’s plan, and vowing to return to the NFL … and TMZ has a copy.

We have verified with law enforcement the letter is the real deal.  You can read it yourself … among the highlights:

— “The world just makes things out of false accusations … and it will all die down, especially when they say NOT GUILTY”


‘Prove all the haters wrong’

– “All the people who turned on me will feel like crap.”

— “God put me in this situation for a reason.”

— “Can’t wait to sign [autographs] again when I’m playing again an [sic] prove all the haters WRONG.”

Do you think Aaron Hernandez is guilty or not of the charges against him? Would he be able to return to his NFL career?

Terrence Jones Arrested For Allegedly Kicking Homeless Man

Terrence Jones Arrested For Allegedly Kicking Homeless ManHouston Rockets forward Terrence Jones has been arrested after shouting at and stomping on the leg of a homeless man in Portland around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to a report from KATU.com.

‘Harassment’

According to KATU, Jones was charged with harassment and is scheduled to appear in court next week. Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau describes the incident:

While watching the group walk away from the bar, the sergeant observed a man, later identified as Terrence Jones, walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping. Jones yelled, “Wake up,” then raised his leg and stomped down on one of the men’s legs. The men were sleeping in the doorway of 114 Northwest 3rd Avenue.


‘Minor leg injury’

The reported victim was 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher, who suffered a minor leg injury from Jones’ stomp but nothing that would require immediate medical treatment, per Simpson.

The 6’9″, 250-pound power forward played in only 19 regular season games for the Rockets as a rookie, averaging 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

What could have brought Terrence Jones to stomp on that poor guy? And how will this case affect Jones’ NBA career?
