Aaron Hernandez ‘argumentative’ with police, court records show
ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was “argumentative” and slammed the door on police during their first encounter following his friend’s death, according to court records.
He also called his girlfriend’s cellphone and stopped her from speaking with police after they pulled her over and told her the friend, Odin Lloyd, was dead.
According to an affidavit attached to search warrants unsealed Tuesday, Hernandez approached police after he noticed them parked outside his North Attleboro home on June 17, the day Lloyd’s body was found.
The affidavit then said Hernandez became argumentative, asked “what’s with all the questions?” and locked the door of his house behind him.
He then returned with his attorney’s business card, and didn’t respond when police told him they were investigating a death.
“Mr. Hernandez slammed the door and relocked it behind him,” the records read. “Mr. Hernandez did not ask officers whose death was being investigated. Mr. Hernandez’s demeanor did not indicate any concern for the death of any person.”
Hernandez came out about 10 minutes later and agreed to be questioned at a police station, according to the documents.
His attorneys have said the evidence against him is circumstantial and that Hernandez is anxious to clear his name.
Eight search warrants were unsealed Tuesday after news organizations sought access to the records.
The search warrants reveal the breadth of the investigation, with authorities scouring through everything from Hernandez’s house to the contents of his team locker, which the Patriots had emptied into a container.
Among the items police seized were a rifle and ammunition found in Hernandez’s home.
