The police returned to Aaron Hernandez’s home yet again at 8:45 a.m. Eastern this morning. This time, the authorities weren’t looking for evidence or to ask questions.
They put handcuffs on Hernandez and led him away from his home in front of a horde of media members that have been camped out at Hernandez’s home for the last nine days since the dead body of Odin Lloyd was found less than a mile away.
The charges against Hernandez are unknown at this point. At the very least, he appears to be facing obstruction of justice charges.
Since Lloyd’s body was found late last Monday afternoon, Hernandez has engaged in three actions that have hindered the investigation by Massachusetts police investigators.
First, he had a cleaning crew completely clean his house last Monday. Second, he smashed his personal cell phone that his attorney turned over to cops “in pieces.” And finally, he smashed/destroyed his own home’s security system that included video surveillance.
Hernandez will be arraigned later today and the charges won’t be revealed until then.
