Aaron Hernandez was involved in a fight with an inmate.

An update on Aaron Hernandez’s altercation with an inmate has been given by Sheriff Thomas Hodgson earlier today.

“An altercation took place between two inmates, and one of them was Aaron Hernandez,” Hodgson told ABC News. “We will be studying video and proceeding with interviews to determine why and how the incident took place to determine whether internal discipline or criminal charges are warranted.”

The dust up took place at a common area of the jail Tuesday, where only one inmate at a time is suppose to be out of their cell Sheriff Hodgson commented.

It’s still unclear which inmate started the fight and the jail staff is still reviewing surveillance video and interviewing witnesses Hodgson said.

Hodgson also said neither inmate needed medical attention.

“It was very brief,” Hodgson said. “The officers were right there, and it was stopped within seconds, maybe a minute.”

The jail staff is also reviewing procedures to figure out how the inmates  were allowed out of their cells at the same time.

Hodgson did not release the other inmate’s name and does not know if the two had any previous beef with each other.

“We don’t know what, if any, relationship there was or has been at any point, either here or anywhere else,” Hodgson said.

Hernandez and the other inmate have been moved to other units until the investigation is completed.

Hernandez, a former NFL tight end, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty of the murder of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez is currently awaiting trial.
