Source: Aaron Hernandez Involved in Prison Fight

A source tells necn that Aaron Hernandez, a former star tight end for the New England Patriots, was involved in a prison fight.

It happened early Thursday afternoon at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts. There is no word on what may have started this fight, who else may have been involved and if anyone was injured.

Hernandez was involved in an altercation with another inmate at the Bristol County House of Corrections in March. 

Hernandez was convicted of first-degree murder on April 15 for the killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd in 2013. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

He's currently serving a life sentence.

Hernandez is also charged with gunning down two men in 2012 after an encounter at a Boston nightclub and is scheduled to go on trial later this year. He has pleaded not guilty.
