Former Patriot Aaron Hernandez apparently has not been a model citizen while in jail facing murder and weapons charges. (AP)
– Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is being investigated to determine if he made a threat to shoot and kill a guard at Bristol County Jail, according to a report at TMZ.com.
The website reports that a former inmate who had been in a cell near Hernandez described a confrontation last year in which Hernandez insulted a guard, but he said the former NFL star did not make any threats.
The ex-con noted that Hernandez has been losing weight and has tried various schemes to get extra food — such as putting an insect on a half-eaten meal to get a fresh serving — which irritated the officers.
Hernandez is in prison facing murder and weapons charges related to the death of Odin Lloyd. He has pleaded not guilty. On Friday, two of his acquaintances — Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz — were indicted by a grand jury charging them with Lloyd’s murder as well. Wallace and Ortiz previously had been charged with accessory to murder for allegedly accompanying Hernandez when he shot and killed Lloyd.
The 54-year-old, known as James Hellwig before he hit it big with the WWE in the late 1980s, collapsed last Tuesday while walking with his wife to his car in a hotel parking lot in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Ulltmate Warrior had made his first appearance on “Monday Night Raw” since 1996 the night before he died, following his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. The organization paid tribute to him during its Monday show.
