Aaron Hernandez arrested, then released by Patriots
 
Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday morning, more than a week after an acquaintance of the New England Patriots tight end was found dead in an industrial park near his house.

Less than two hours following his arrest, Hernandez was released by the Patriots, who initially announced the transaction on their Twitter account before formalizing it in an official statement.

Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday morning at his home in North Attleborough, Mass.
The Bristol County District Attorney's office released a statement announcing Hernandez's arrest, although charges were not disclosed. Hernandez was arrested by Massachusetts State Police, who obtained the arrest warrant, and was booked at the North Attleborough police station.

The Massachusetts State Police announced on its Twitter account that the charges against Hernandez will not be revealed until his arraignment Wednesday at Attleboro District Court.

Wearing a white V-neck T-shirt, long red athletic shorts and black sneakers, Hernandez was led around 9 a.m. ET from the front door of his mansion with his hands in handcuffs behind his back inside the shirt and placed into a police cruiser, which quickly drove away. He casually spit into some bushes on his way to the car.

Hernandez remains at the center of an investigation involving the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.

The Patriots extended their sympathies to Lloyd's family in the statement announcing Hernandez's release from the team.

"A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss," the Patriots' statement said. "Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do."

The NFL also released a statement Wednesday, saying that Hernandez's arrest is "deeply troubling."

"The involvement of an NFL player in a case of this nature is deeply troubling," the league's statement said. "The Patriots have released Aaron Hernandez, who will have his day in court. At the same time, we should not forget the young man who was the victim in this case and take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathy to Odin Lloyd's family and friends."

The prosecution case looks pretty strong as they are reading it.
He really doesn't look bothered standing there at all.

Wow, I figured that they got him for obstruction. This is a surprise.

Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been charged with murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, and is facing five additional gun charges.

Hernandez has pled not guilty. The district attorney has requested he be held without bail. We are not legal scholars — it's surreal for a fantasy football site to have to cover such a senseless and macabre event — but the evidence the Attleboro District Court has collected against Hernandez over the past week appears damning bordering on overwhelming. Hernandez is alleged to have erased 6-8 hours of video footage from his home-security system, and was reportedly caught on tape saying "you can't trust anyone anymore" before picking Lloyd up on Monday evening. He was also caught on film walking through his home with a gun after the murder is alleged to have taken place, and reportedly left behind a shell-casing in a rental car. It appears the prosecution believes Hernandez pulled the trigger. This is just the first day of what is going to be a long and drawn out legal process, but the odds are remarkably high that Hernandez has played his last down of NFL.
