The older brother of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested after he allegedly threw a brick at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.
Per the police report which was obtained by TMZ, Dennis “D.J.” Hernandez arrived at a security gate on the ESPN campus Thursday. He allegedly threw the brick along with a note addressed to “all media outlets” inside a plastic bag.
“It’s about time you all realeyes the affect media has on all family members,” the note stated. “Since you’re a world wide leader maybe you could lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clean it up!”
TMZ later reported that Hernandez experienced a bipolar episode less than three weeks before his arrest. It came as a result of a wild police chase. The incident went down on March 8th as cops tried to stop him in his silver Hyundai as he was driving through Cheshire.
“According to the Cheshire Police Department, D.J. was driving erratically and at high rates of speed — at one point traveling through grass fields in front of the Cheshire Correctional Institution.
But, police say when they attempted to pull him over … D.J. blew through a red light and lost officers.”
He would soon be caught “after a brief foot chase.”
DJ’s mother, Terri Hernandez, told police the former UConn football player had “been acting very strange and she believed he needed to be mentally evaluated at a hospital.” He would then be committed to the Bristol Hospital on a Police Emergency Examination Request.
D.J. was ultimately hit with five criminal charges over the incident, including reckless driving and engaging police in pursuit.
He is now facing a charge of breach of peace in this latest incident.
Aaron Hernandez starred at the college level with Florida, helping the Gators win the BCS national championship in 2008. He played three seasons with the Patriots before he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
