Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was indicted by a grand jury Thursday on charges of assault and battery, as well as threats to do bodily harm stemming from a jail fight with another inmate.
Hernandez also was indicted on an alleged threat made on Nov. 1, 2013, in the same Bristol County Jail.
The scuffle on Feb. 25, 2014, allegedly occurred when an inmate was being transported from the jail's infirmary.
The man, identified as Andrew Booker, and Hernandez allegedly exchanged words.
Booker's attorney, Michael P. Malone, has told reporters his client will not testify against Hernandez.
