In response to rkarp's comment:
Hern was arrested his fresh year for shooting 2 guys. He was identified as the shooter. A police report was filed with Hern's name on it. 10 days later the charges were dropped, and the UFLa to,d the place they would handle the discipline. That means Meyer knew about it. Right? This is ALL documented facts with photo copies of the arrest report in the WSJ and on ESPN last week
You keep harping on this 2007 incident. I went back and searched for any article or any draft publication that would have reason to report this around the 2010 draft. I found zero articles that related to anything about this incident and that includes ESPN. Funny how all these outlets are suddenly finding this information now. It is easy to go back and dig up information in hindsight.
If you have any evidence that the Pat's knew about this or Bob Kraft is lying that Urban Meyer told them then reveal your source.
You might be correct and they may have known but I can only go by what Kraft said until a media outlet comes up with a source that validates your claim.
Here are two...
Also in 2007, Hernandez was among three Florida football players and another who had gone on to the NFL who were questioned by Gainesville police after a double shooting that happened after a Florida loss. Police said the players provided the information investigators wanted. No charges were filed.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Authorities in the Massachusetts murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez have reached out to police in Gainesville, Fla., in hopes of determining whether Hernandez had any role in a 2007 shooting that left two men wounded, a source with knowledge of the murder investigation told ABC News. One of the men was shot in the back of the head, according to a police report of the shooting obtained by ESPN's "Outside the Lines."
At the time of the 2007 shooting, Hernandez was a freshman on the University of Florida football team.
The 2007 Gainesville shooting happened on Sept. 30, when Hernandez was a 17-year-old freshman with the Gators. The two men and a friend of theirs had left a nightclub and were in their car stopped at a light blocks away when their vehicle was fired upon, according to the statements two of the men gave to police. Corey Smith, a 28-year-old at the time who was sitting in the front passenger seat, was shot in back of the head. Justin Glass, the 19-year-old driver, was shot in the arm. Randall Cason, sitting in the back seat behind Smith, was unharmed.
While several witnesses told police the shooter was a black male, Cason said there were two suspects.
Cason, then 20, told police that shooter was a "Hawaiian" or "Hispanic" male who had a large, muscular build, stood about 6-foot-3 or 6-4, weighed about 230 or 240 pounds and had a lot of tattoos.
Hernandez's name is redacted from the report because he was 17 and considered a minor at the time. However, there is one reference to Hernandez in which his name is not redacted. In that section under "Aaron Hernandez," the report says detectives attempted to speak to Hernandez on Oct. 9 but that "he invoked his right to counsel."
