Aaron Hernandez in Jailhouse Fight With Other Inmate, May Face Additional Charges

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was involved in a jailhouse fight with another inmate last night, and it could result in more charges.

Bristol County (Mass.) Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says an investigation is underway.

The former NFL star is being held without bail at the Bristol County House of Correction while awaiting trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd last summer.

The 24-year-old is in the special management area of the jail, segregated from the general prison population. Others are in the same boat, however.

According to reports, another inmate, who is housed in the same segregated area, had been verbally harassing Aaron Hernandez all day Tuesday.

It's unclear how, but at some point, Hernandez was walking in a secured hallway when he came into contact with the same inmate who was bothering him.

That meeting reportedly resulted in the altercation.

The hallway is supposed to be reserved for just one jail inmate at a time, so the fight - while not surprising in a sense - should never have occurred.

Hodgson said that neither Hernandez nor the other inmate suffered significant injuries, though he could face additional charges if convicted of assault.
