Aaron Hernandez Found With Shank In His Prison Cell


Aaron Hernandez is locked in a 6×6 cinderblock cell and he’s still finding ways to get into trouble.

The former Patriots tight-end star was found with a shank in his cell Friday, considered illegal contraband in the big house. According to FOX 25 Boston, once officials discovered the weapon, Hernandez was removed from the general population at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center (a super max prison) and put in solitary confinement, not a fun place to be by any means.

This isn’t his first time in hot water since being locked up though…

According to ESPN, in May, CNN reported that Hernandez agreed to be on the lookout for one inmate who went into another prisoner’s cell at the correctional center. The two inmates fought, with a source telling CNN the altercation was believed to be gang-related. All three inmates were disciplined, and Hernandez was placed in a special management section.

And in 2014, Hernandez was indicted in an alleged jail assault in which he and an inmate being transported from an infirmary at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, allegedly exchanged words. Hernandez allegedly punched the inmate and knocked him to the ground. Neither was injured.

Hernandez is serving a life sentence in the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée.
