WBZ in Boston is reporting Friday morning that Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will be charged in connection to the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd according to a source. The station reports:
According to that source, an arrest warrant has been issued on a charge of obstruction of justice.
It is expected that State Police will be responsible for arresting Hernandez, but it is not yet clear when and where Hernandez was going to be arrested.
The source added that it is possible that charges could eventually be upgraded.
The situation remains fluid, but it does seem like it’s all coming to a head today.
[UPDATE: The Boston Globe is disputing the reports that a warrant has been issued, and has a law enforcement source saying no arrests have been made and no warrants have been issued yet.]
