BOSTON (Reuters) – New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez was arrested on Wednesday, according to local media reports.
He had been questioned and his house searched in connection with an investigation into the shooting death of a young man found less than a mile from the star tight end’s sprawling home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
Massachusetts State Police referred questions to local authorities who did not immediately respond.
WBZ, a local affiliate of CBS, showed video of Hernandez being taken from his home in handcuffs.
