Aaron Hernandez Indicted on New Charges

Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was indicted by a grand jury on Thursday on charges connected to a jailhouse fight in February.

The Bristol, Massachusetts County District Attorney confirmed to NECN that Hernandez was indicted on charges of assault and battery and threats to do bodily harm.

Hernandez, a Bristol, Conn. native, was allegedly involved in an altercation with another inmate at the Bristol County jail in New Bedford, Mass. on Feb. 25.

The threatening charge is related to an incident that occurred in November, according to authorities.

Hernandez is in prison, accused of murdering semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro, Mass. last year. He has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.

He will be in court to face the new charges at a later date, but that date has not yet been determined.
