Earlier this week, a judge ordered the re-arrest of Aaron Hernandez’s brother, Dennis, after he failed to appear in court the previous week on charges related to throwing a brick at the ESPN campus in Bristol, Connecticut.
The 37-year-old was said to have gone to ESPN in a car and threw a bag containing a brick and a note over a fence and onto the property before leaving.
The former college quarterback reportedly sent a threatening letter.
“To all media outlets, It’s about time you all realeyes the affect media has on all family members,” the note said, according to police. “Since you’re a world wide leader maybe you could lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clean it up! Yours truly, Dennis J. Hernandez.”
In March, Bristol police said they received an anonymous complaint from someone who said they were concerned about Dennis Hernandez because he said he wanted to destroy property at the state Capitol and at ESPN.
Hernandez wasn’t on the run for long as he turned himself in into the Bristol Police Department, according to TMZ. He was placed in handcuffs before he was booked on a charge of failure to appear.
He would soon take a mug shot, but creepily smiled in his photo.
D.J. Hernandez is the older brother of former NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez, who was sentenced to life in prison over a murder and eventually killed himself after being found not guilty on a double-murder charge.
Hernandez was a quarterback and wide receiver more than a decade ago at UConn, about 41 miles northeast of the ESPN campus.
