Can't say that we didn't see this coming.
Just a few minutes ago, Aaron Hernandez was seen leaving his home in handcuffs, escorted by several police officers. At the moment, what exactly he is being arrested for is unknown, and with all of the rumors and speculation that have been flying around over the past week, I'm not even going to try and fathom a guess as to the exact nature of the charges. I'd initially say that it was obstruction of justice, but at this point who knows. It could be anything from a precautionary measure to a full on murder rap and everything in between, and I for one don't see the point in throwing out a wild guess just so I can take credit as the first person to break the story.
On the plus side, with this news comes the beginning of the process of getting this mess sorted out, for better or for worse. Hernandez will either face charges, he will be let go, or he will work out some kind of deal that allows him to walk. Regardless, it would appear that Hernandez's life is about to change in a pretty major way.

Aaron Hernandez released by Patriots:'Simply the right thing to do'
"A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss. Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do."

Law enforcement had searched near both Hernandez's home and the industrial park where Odin Lloyd's body was found. At least three search warrants have been issued in connection with the investigation.

Lloyd was a 27-year-old semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits who was reportedly found dead on June 17 with multiple gunshot wounds.

Lloyd’s family says he was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. They say the two men were friends and were out together on the last night of Lloyd's life. Lloyd's mother, Ursula Ward, declined to comment at her Boston home Wednesday morning.

"Nothing to say, please. Thank you," she said, before shutting the door.
