Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is in the middle of a police investigation involving the death of man a mile away from his house.
While that is going on, now there is a civil lawsuit alleging he shot a Connecticut man in the face in February, according to court records. New York attorney David Jaroslawicz told ESPN’s Ed Werder that he represents Alexander S. Bradley, the man who said Hernandez shot him while the two had an argument when leaving a Miami nightclub. Jaroslawicz said he filed a personal-injury lawsuit on behalf of his client but that the suit was withdrawn because of an inaccuracy. Jaroslawicz claims his client and Hernandez have been friends for several years. Jaroslawicz claims Bradley spent several weeks being treated at a hospital and has endured several operations with even more necessary to repair damage from the gunshot wound. The original lawsuit alleged that Hernandez shot Bradley in the face but the refiling contends that Bradley was shot in the arm but the bullet traveled into his head and caused damage there, including the loss of his right eye. According to the suit, the two had an argument in a strip club and later, in the car, Hernandez pointed a gun at Bradley, and the gun went off and Bradley was hit.
When asked if his client had a police report of the incident, Jaroslawicz declined to provide information.
According to USA Today, his client was in the hospital for weeks and, “I’m sure the police were there.”
