Aaron Hernandez’s brother, Dennis, is in some big trouble.
Dennis “D.J.” Hernandez, Aaron’s brother, was initially arrested in March after throwing a brick with a note onto ESPN property. The former Connecticut quarterback and wide receiver has been ordered to be re-arrested after missing a court date.
The 37-year-old was due to appear in court Friday after he was charged with a misdemeanor breach of peace. Police said he went to ESPN in a car, possibly an Uber, and threw a bag containing a brick and a note over a fence and onto the property before leaving.
According to police, a note was attached to the brick, which read: “To all media outlets, It’s about time you all realeyes [sic] the affect [sic] media has on all family members. Since you’re a world wide leader [sic] maybe you could lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clean it up! Yours truly, Dennis J. Hernandez.”
D.J. Hernandez in college threw 15 touchdowns while recording 1,200 scrimmage yards and five scores for UConn. He was also charged with reckless driving in a March police chase.
Aaron, who played high school football in Bristol, died by suicide in April 2017 while serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd. He had just beaten a double-murder charge and was appealing his murder conviction at the time of his suicide.
In the eyes of the court, Aaron Hernandez was no longer a convicted murderer because convictions were thrown out when a defendant died before an appeal was heard. However, his murder conviction was reinstated by Massachusetts’ highest court in a ruling that also ended that legal rule.
