Early Wednesday morning, New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was taken away by North Attleborough police.
Hernandez, who is accused of murdering 27-year old Odin Lloyd June 17 will be arraigned later today. He was released an hour and a half after his arrest.
While the investigation is still “active and on-going,” the Patriots put out a statement regarding their team mate: “Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation.”
Hernandez was drafted by the Patriots last year. His contract and incentives add up to about $40 million.
