Finally, both of the other men alleged to be involved in the Odin Lloyd shooting are in custody. The investigation now turns to finding the weapon used in the shooting. Buried within that Boston Globe article is an interesting blurb about Aaron Hernandez and his involvement with Alexander Bradley, the man now suing him for a separate shooting in Florida.

On the weekend between the AFC Championship Game (which New England lost to Baltimore) and the Super Bowl, Aaron Hernandez appeared on a police report with Alexander Bradley after a high speed chase. According to the police report, a Black Yukon SUV was stopped on a highway at 2:20 a.m. when a trooper pulled up, and the vehicle took off swerving violently. The chase down I-93 reached 105 miles per hour before the vehicle was finally pulled over.

Bradley, the man who was later allegedly shot in the eye by Hernandez, was the driver, and Hernandez was in the passenger seat. When the officer approached the vehicle, Hernandez reportedly yelled out, “Trooper, I’m Aaron Hernandez — it’s OK.”

Bradley was charged with drunk driving after then failing field sobriety tests.
