Florida claims against Aaron Hernandez won't reopen

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office is not reopening the investigation into what transpired on the day a man claims New England Patriot TE Aaron Hernandez shot him near Riviera Beach, Fla.

Alexander S. Bradley claimed in a civil suit that on Feb. 13, while in a vehicle with Hernandez heading toward Palm Beach County, a gun in Hernandez's possession discharged, hitting Bradley.

But the man repeatedly told deputies that he did not know who shot him and refused to cooperate, the report said. Hernandez isn't mentioned in the report.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story goes on to say that as of Thursday, that man still hadn't cooperated - or even contacted - the sheriff's office. And, unless that changes, PBSO can't reopen the case. The report doesn't mention any witnesses to the shooting, only people who found the man after he was shot. Surveillance video was determined to be "of no value," the report said. Perhaps one less thing for Hernandez to worry about these days.
