Aaron Hernandez

Attacks Inmate

At Bristol County Jail

EXCLUSIVE

0225-aaron-hernandez-01

Aaron Hernandez ATTACKED another inmate at Bristol County Jail earlier today ... and we're told he beat the guy up pretty good ... sources tell TMZ Sports.

Sources tell us the former New England Patriots tight end -- who is usually segregated from the general population -- was allowed to take a walk in an isolated hallway ... but somehow came into contact with another inmate.

We're told Hernandez recognized the other inmate and launched into an attack -- beating the other man up pretty badly. 

Sources tell us ... Hernandez and the other man had been beefing all day long. One source says the other guy had been harassing Aaron nonstop. Clearly, Hernandez was pissed.

The 24-year-old has been locked up since June 26th -- he's facing murder charges stemming from the 2013 shooting death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Officials had placed Hernandez in solitary confinement out of concern he would be a target behind bars due to his celebrity status.

We reached out to the jail for comment -- so far, no word back.

The potential altercation was probably set up by staff. Bets were probably made for their own "payperview boxing match".

....sounds like somebody (hernandez) wanted a piece of azz - dude wouldn't flip over and give it up - so he did what ALWAYS happens when the man-azz isn't offered up - he beats him up. I doubt this was over a bag of chips. "Beefing all day" means that hernandez was continually grabbing his crotch and saying "you're gonna get this".....

so how long does celebrity status get you into protective custody for? i imagine after a conviction and a couple of months, noone is going to remember or care who this guy is.

Do you people understand he is in county jail with the pretrial inmates . That means he is with others awaiting trial. There are no long time hard timers in here looking to establish dominance , they usually have special blocks where they keep the gang members too. No guards set this up. He is in PC which is the same as solitary. How was someone beefing with him? Think about it they can talk to the guy in the next cell or the cell across the block or under them. Solitary doesn't mean he is in his own building . He is in jail not prison . By the way prison isn't like they show it on TV either. If you keep your mouth shut and mind your business you usually don't get harassed . But in jail everyone just waiting to get out , sometime young gang bangers cause trouble but otherwise even the gang guys if they are not segregated don't bother anyone . No one is looking to get a short sentence extended or loose the automatic good time you accumulate or screw up parole by getting into trouble. No one gets raped in jail , yes stuff gets stolen , yes there are fights boys fight in school too. But if he is convicted no one will do anything to Aaron Hernandez what do you think anyone in jail can do to a world class athlete who doesn't mind killing ? Use your brains people
