Aaron Hernandez Sued: Lawsuits Demand $12 Million

Why was Aaron Hernandez sued? While no criminal charges have been filed, two families believe that the former NFL player “willfully, recklessly and/or maliciously shot a firearm from inside of his motor vehicle.”

In a related report by The Inquisitr, a man named Alexander S. Bradley had Aaron Hernandez sued because of an alleged shooting, as well. Bradley claimed in his lawsuit that the two were arguing in a car after leaving a Miami strip club and an illegally owned gun owned by Hernandez was pointed in the other man’s direction. The gun discharged and bullet damaged his arm and took out his right eye.

In the case of the 2012 double slaying, Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado were killed when unknown assailants fired on their car from inside a Toyota 4Runner while stopped at a traffic light. In the warrant that described the case, detectives described how they believe Hernandez was involved:

“There is also probable cause to believe that Aaron Hernandez was operating the suspect vehicle used in the shooting homicides of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, and may have been the shooter.”

Coincidentally, Alexander Bradley was also believed to be in the vehicle, so it’s not clear who the actual shooter might be. But Bradley is already in jail because he failed to show up for his required appearance before a grand jury and was thus charged as a fugitive witness.

Although the investigation is still going, the families of Abreu and Furtado filed two wrongful death lawsuits against Aaron Hernandez, with each seeking $6 million a piece. But Hernandez is still facing murder and weapons charges in the case of Odin Lloyd, whose family also had Aaron Hernandez sued for an undisclosed amount of money. Before going to jail, the former NFL player had signed a $40 million contract and the judge is making sure Hernandez’s home is not sold until the lawsuits are completed.

With Aaron Hernandez sued once again for a shooting, what do you think about the former New England Patriots tight end?
