Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was involved in a domestic fighting incident with his fiancée last summer, according to a report from TMZ on Tuesday. Last week, Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder for the death of semipro football player Odin Lloyd, and details about his past continue to unfold.
According to the TMZ report, a neighbor called the police to report a domestic disturbance between Hernandez and his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, while they were at a rental home in Hermosa Beach, a beachside community in Los Angeles, in June 2012.
From the TMZ report:
We're told when police arrived, Jenkins said she was ok and didn't want to press charges so they left without making an arrest.
Law enforcement sources also tell us ... cops came to the house several other times after neighbors made noise complaints. One source says Hernandez "acted like an a**hole" when cops responded.
