Aaron Hernandez Fight

Victim Was in HANDCUFFS

Couldn't Defend Himself

EXCLUSIVE

0226_aaron_hernandez_getty2The victim in the Aaron Hernandez jail fight was in HANDCUFFS at the time of the attack ... and therefore couldn't defend himself ... sources extremely familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports.

Our sources tell us ... Aaron was NOT wearing handcuffs when he was allowed to go for an isolated walk in a hallway at Bristol County Jail on Tuesday ... but the other inmate he encountered WAS in 'cuffs.

As we first reported, the other inmate had been talking smack to Hernandez ... and Aaron had been upset. When they got into the hallway, Aaron attacked ... and we're told he beat the crap out of the guy.

Our sources say ... since the victim's hands were restrained, he could barely defend himself from Aaron's assault, which we're told was brutal.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson has told other media outlets, the fight lasted less than a minute. Hodgson says he's investigating the situation to find out how the men got into the hallway at the same time.

A rep for the jail had no comment. We reached out to Hodgson about this story multiple times ... he won't return our calls.

I already knew this guy was a pos but to attack someone who has no way of defending himself, that's cowardly. He wouldn't be so tough in gen pop

If the man is in cuffs, where was the guard at? Did the guard just let him get his ass whooped or are they trying to bury him even more?

Thats jail, no fair fights in that place, its about survival and I dont think Aaron Hernandez wants to live really! With what hes facing in jail time and his crime, hes going to have issues locked up but, him fighting a handcuffed man, isnt a surprise, they fight dirty in jail, its no rules there even though there are unwritten ones, its survival !!LGNM

Some corrupt jail guard probably did as a favor to Hernandez.... this should be fully investigated.... gee what a bad ass, he can actually beat up a guy who is in handcuffs..... Aaron is in his element, locked up like an animal where he will remain for a very long time...moron
