Aaron Hernandez returned to Boston court today. The former New England tight end pleaded not guilty to a pair of first-degree murder charges steaming from a drive-by shooting in July 2012. Prosecutors laid out that Hernandez was the gunmen in the deaths of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado.
Details over the what prompted the alleged incident are unsettling, to say the least.
De Abreu accidentally knocked into Hernandez, causing his drink to spill. For the rest of the night, prosecutors allege, a hot-headed Hernandez stalked the group, until he saw them outside of the club.
He ended up following them in his car as the friends drove off, unaware Hernandez was tailing them, prosecutors said.
“Yo, what’s up now?” Hernandez allegedly said at a red light before firing off a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson from his car.
Hernandez, as we know, played for the Patriots during the 2012 season.
