According to a report by TMZ Sports, Aaron Hernandez is under investigation for allegedly threatening to shoot and kill a security guard at Bristol County Jail in late 2013.
Apparently, the whole incident was sparked by Hernandez's attempt to deviously obtain extra food for himself. After a while, one security guard in particular called him out on it and that's when Hernandez allegedly made threats against the guard.
However, one of the NFL star's fellow inmates says that Hernandez did not indeed threaten to kill the guard who blew the whistle on Hernandez's extra food tactics.
Here's more on the story from TMZ:
The ex-inmate told investigators Aaron was noticeably losing weight in jail and would run various schemes to get extra food ... like putting an insect on a half eaten meal and then complain to officials so he could get a fresh serving. But the ex-inmate claimed Aaron pulled his schemes "one too many times" which pissed off the officers ... who put an end to the extra food.)
The ex-inmate was adamant Hernandez NEVER threatened the guard ... though he did claim Aaron called the guy a "bitch" during the heated exchange.
Hernandez was "written up" over the incident at the time, but there's no word on where things stand in terms of the current investigation.
