Aaron Hernandez's Brother Arrested For Alleged Vandalism At ESPN HQ

Aaron Hernandez seemed to have a bright future ahead of him when he was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2010. He later extended his contract with the team and welcomed a baby girl with his fiancee, per Biography. It looked like a perfect life to many, but Hernandez had many private troubles. It all fell apart after Aaron became the main suspect in a murder trial. Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player and Hernandez's future brother-in-law, was found dead. The former NFL star was arrested, and in 2015 he was found guilty of the murder of Lloyd.

One person that stood by the former NFL player through the trial and conviction was his older brother, Dennis Jonathan "D.J." Hernandez. He released a statement honoring his brother after he died by apparent suicide in 2017, per News 8. D.J. said, "My younger brother Aaron was far from perfect, but I will always love him. Many stories about my brother's life have been shared with the public –- except the story Aaron was brave enough to share with our mother and me." D.J. would also release a book in 2018 about Aaron's life and death, titled "The Truth About Aaron," per CNN.

As the years have passed, D.J. has tried to remain out of the spotlight but a recent run-in with the law has him back in the limelight.

D.J. reportedly threw a brick at ESPN HQ

Like Aaron Hernandez, Dennis "D.J." Hernandez has found himself in trouble with the law but for a very different reason. TMZ reports the football coach was arrested last week for reportedly throwing a brick at ESPN headquarters. The security guard at ESPN told authorities that an Uber arrived at the building, and a mysterious passenger got out before they threw something on the ground.

When authorities arrived, they revealed the object was a brick wrapped in a plastic bag, per TMZ. It didn't take long for them to discover who threw the brick because there was a handwritten note signed by D.J. himself. The note read, "To all media outlets. It's about time you all realeyes the affect media has on all family members. Since you're a world wide leader maybe you could lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clean it up!" To confirm it was D.J., officials phoned the football coach, and he admitted to being at the headquarters.

Although he confessed to being at ESPN, D.J. "didn't wish to speak about the incident." According to TMZ, the former athlete was arrested "for misdemeanor breach of peace." However, his time behind bars wasn't long, as he was later released and is set to appear in court in April. Officials told D.J. he is no longer welcome at ESPN headquarters, and he reportedly "stated he understood." The football coach has yet to publicly comment on the situation.
