Patriots Aaron Hernandez likely to be arrested

It is not clear what the charge against Hernandez is expected to be, but the Sports Illustrated report says that law enforcement authorities believe Hernandez’s involvement in the death of Odin Lloyd is significant enough that an arrest is likely.

Shortly after the Sports Illustrated report was published, Boston Globe reporter Wesley Lowery wrote on Twitter that no arrest is imminent. Lowery added, however, that that does not mean Hernandez won’t be arrested.

Massachusetts State Police searched Hernandez’s home on Wednesday, and a car that was rented under Hernandez’s name has been referred to as a key piece of evidence into the death of Lloyd.
