Aaron Hernandez

Attacks Inmate

At Bristol County Jail

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.

If any of yall have faced prison time you know you can't let yourself be a victim. If someone looks at you wrong or says something to you that you don't like then it's time to fight. If Aaron Hernandez would of let this guy keep picking on him then to the rest of the jail or prison he looks like a bitch and that's something you don't want to be labeled. You want people to see that you can handle your own even if it means you fight every time your let out of your cell than that's what you do there's a big difference between street politics and prison politics.

Aaron Hernandez is a WORLD CLASS ATHELETE!!!! He's beating the **** out of 90% of the prison pop easily - dude could prob jump rope for 45min - hr - also (personal experience) most nfl players have some other training off-the-field to assist them with their on there on-the-field gameplay: i.e. jujitsu. archery, etc. Aaron is a badass. Plain and simple.

That's what happens when you keep poking at a caged lion. I'm willing to bet that that chance meeting in the corridor wasn't by chance at all.
