• Hernandez pleads Fifth in lawsuit filed by former right-hand man


    MIAMI, Fla. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez reportedly exercised his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in a civil suit filed by his former right-hand man.

    The Boston Globe
    reports a new filing notes 13 times that Hernandez "declines to respond to the allegations" made by Alexander Bradley.

    Bradley accuses Hernandez of shooting him outside of a Miami strip club in February. He initially said he did not know who shot him.

    Hernandez's attorneys requested the lawsuit be pushed back until after the former tight end's trial in the murder of Odin Lloyd. A judge denied that request. Hernandez is currently being held without bail on a first-degree murder charge in the Boston resident's June 2013 death.

    Bradley was arrested in Hartford last month after failing to appear before a grand jury investigating a 2012 double murder in Boston's South End. A man who survived the drive-by told FOX Undercover exclusively that he believes the former Patriots tight end pulled the trigger in the 2012 killing.
