Aaron Hernandez Shooting Case Re-Opening

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been the talk of the NFL over the past 24 hours as he was subject of a homicide probe by police. Wednesday it was revealed Hernandez was sued last week for shooting a man in the face but the case was dropped.

Now the case concerning Hernandez shooting a man in the face is opening back up.

The case was dropped for unknown reasons, but Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk obtained a quote explaining why the case was dropped and is now opening back up:

Attorney David Jaroslawicz, who represented the former Jets massage therapists in the lawsuit against Brett Favre, tells PFT that the case was dismissed not because of a settlement but because of a mistake in the paperwork.

So yes, Hernandez did allegedly shoot a man in the face and he needed to have plates and screws inserted into the right side of his face. We don’t  know if Hernandez was formally charged over the incident and we also don’t know if it is in any way related to the homicide probe yesterday when police executed a search warrant at his house.

It seems this situation is continually updating itself with worse and worse news for Hernandez.

Stay tuned here at the Spin Zone for the latest updates on the homicide probe and shooting case. Oh, and whatever else may pop up.
