If you’re looking for the good dirt on Aaron Hernandez in the local dailies today, the Boston Herald is the place to go.
Page 2 of the feisty local tabloid:
Aaron Hernandez’s repeated high-handed brushes with the law — including one just last January when he allegedly dropped his own celebrity name in a bid to have a statie go easy on his pal — suggest a sense of entitlement dating to the murder defendant’s days as a Florida Gator.
“Trooper, I’m Aaron Hernandez. It’s OK,” State Trooper Eric Papkee reported he was told by the passenger after he pulled over an SUV that had been chasing a station wagon and weaving at speeds of up to 105 mph on Jan. 28 on the Southeast Expressway. Hernandez’s buddy Alexander Bradley — who is now suing Hernandez, claiming he shot him in the face a month later after a night of revelry at a Florida strip club — was at the wheel in the Massachusetts incident and was hit with a second offense drunken driving charge.
Good friend, yeah?
Then there was the 2007 rumpus when Hernandez punched a Florida restaurant manager (rupturing his eardrum) who had the nerve to ask Hernandez to pay for his drinks. Then-college teammate Testament Tim Tebow tried, but apparently failed, to keep Hernandez out of that jam.
More dish? Try the Track:
He may be charged with ruthlessly gunning down a pal in cold blood — and be under investigation for a double murder — but chicks still dig Aaron Hernandez!
Since his arrest, the Twitterverse has been flooded with missives from smitten ladies who still find the former Patriots tight end attractive, despite the heinous crime he is charged with committing. And a Facebook page called Free Aaron Hernandez with the tagline “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” had nearly 3,000 “Likes” yesterday.
“Aaron I pray for you every night & day. I hope everything works out in the end for you,” posted Krystale Anne, one of the scores of Facebook friends who sent out good wishes to the imprisoned ex-Patriot.
Crosstown at the Boston Globe, it’s all pretty pedestrian:
Broken mirror sought in Aaron Hernandez case
They will not say why they want it, but investigators remain keenly interested in finding a side mirror from the Nissan Altima believed driven by former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez on the day prosecutors said he allegedly orchestrated the killing of Dorchester resident Odin Lloyd.
Police have been searching for the mirror since the early days of the investigation, after Lloyd was shot to death early on the morning of June 17 in an industrial park near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home.
Not exactly mirror images the Boston dailies, eh?
