NFL: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez Allegedly Shot Man in Face

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez allegedly shot a man in the face at a strip club in Florida.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez allegedly shot a man in the face at a strip club in Florida. 

According to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal, Hernandez's legal troubles got worse just a day after police was at his home in connection to a homicide investigation in Massachusetts. Now, a civil lawsuit is reportedly being filed against him in Florida.  

NFL.com obtained a copy of the complaint filed June 13 in a federal court in South Florida. The complaint alleges that, on February 13, Hernandez and Alexander S. Bradley got in an argument while at Tootsie's Cabaret, a strip club in Miami-Dade County. While driving toward Palm Beach County, a gun in Hernandez's possession discharged, hitting Bradley. 

Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports adds Bradley was found alone in an alley behind a John Deere shop, bleeding from his head and right hand, at 6:47 a.m.

The lawsuit indicates Bradley lost his right eye during the incident and that Hernandez's gun was not properly licensed, per Rosenthal. 

CBS News adds the 30-year-old Bradley is seeking at least $100,000 in damages. The complainant also suffers from jaw pain, headaches, permanent injury to his right hand and arm and will probably need further surgery. 

The lawsuit says Bradley "will require extensive medical care and treatment for the rest of his life."

Bradley is represented by New York attorney David Jaroslawicz, per ESPN.

Jaroslawicz said his client has been a friend of Hernandez for several years. He said Bradley spent several weeks being treated at a hospital and has endured several operations to repair damage from the gunshot wound. The attorney declined to comment when asked he has a police report of the incident. 

ESPN adds a police report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff describes a shooting incident involving a man named Bradley on February 13. The sheriff's office deemed the case inactive because Bradley refused to cooperate. Hernandez was not named in the report. 

The Patriots tight end, on his part, is represented by the Athletes First agency, which said early Wednesday that it had no comment on the police investigation. His mother said by phone from Connecticut on Tuesday she had no knowledge of a case involving him. 

Interestingly enough, court records in Connecticut indicate Bradley pleaded guilty in 2006 to a felony charge of sale of a hallucinogen/narcotic, per Garafolo. He was sentenced to five years in jail, but the sentence was suspended to 18 months. He also received five years' probation. 

In 38 games, Hernandez has 175 receptions for 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns. He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury and had shoulder injury in April.
