HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A fugitive with ties to former New England Patriots’ player Aaron Hernandez has been taken into custody in Connecticut.
The U.S. Marshal’s Service says Alexander Bradley of East Hartford was found Friday morning at a residence in Hartford.
Bradley has alleged in a civil lawsuit that Hernandez shot him in the face in February after they argued at a Miami strip club.
He failed to appear in court last month after being ordered to appear before a grand jury in Suffolk County, Mass. The panel is investigating a 2012 shooting in Boston, which has been linked to the former NFL star.
Hernandez has already pleaded not guilty in the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found June 17 not far from Hernandez’s mansion in North Attleborough, Mass.
