Aaron Hernandez

Attacks Inmate

At Bristol County Jail

EXCLUSIVE

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.

He may have killed a few people but I can guarantee the majority of the female population would still take a night with him in the fantasy suite. No denying the boy is FINE.

If Bristol County is like the Jail I work at, "Solitary" is only a name for the Disciplinary Isolation Unit. The inmates are in single cells 23 hours a day but are are able to talk / yell out the cell doors and communicate with each other because there are usually 12 to 24 of these single cells in a unit. The hour to (possible ) hour and 15 minutes they are out of " Rec" they are supposed to be alone! with an Officer. The Inmates in the unit can all hear and some can see each other but should NOT have physical access to each . Right now there is an Officer or two explaining what they did wrong.

What a shame. A far cry from the beautiful mansion that he once lived in.

D.A. is allowed to use this incident at his murder trial to show he has a propensity for violence.
`
Victim & jail guards can be brought in to testify at his murder trial.
