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.

One day one of these setups will be the end of Hernandez, maybe not where he is now but once he starts serving his life sentence, and he will, there is always a tougher guy than a tough guy.

Ripping a winning lottery ticket is the equivalent to what this guy did throwing his football career away to be a lowlife goon.

Put this loser in solitary for the rest of his worthless life. What a POS.

At what point when you make it in like do you say to yourself, Hey I'd rather be a hood?
Such an idiot. I'm pretty sure Odin Loyds family wishes he got his ass kicked. And I guess he has the same temper off drugs too.

I'm sure would have never happened if the kid wasn't runin his mouth to Hernandez but then again Aaron needs to learn to control his temper if he knew how to do that he wouldn't be in jail in the first place

Doesn't it take some time to beat someone up? He went from solitary confinement to walking a hall alone with another inmate with enough time alone to beat him? Something`s fishy! Paid a guard to give him 5 minutes with the dude who's been dissing him through the bars maybe?

My brother is the guy he beat up. He has barely spoken to aaron, he was just trying to make a name for himself because he's going in for life.
