05:28 PM ET 06.19 | One day after police first arrived at the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to question him about the possible murder of one his associates, news broke of a lawsuit filed by a Connecticut man claiming Hernandez shot him in the face in February. A complaint filed last Thursday in a South Florida district court by attorneys for Alexander S. Bradley alleges Hernandez aimed a gun at the plaintiff and discharged the weapon as the two were in a vehicle traveling from Miami toward Palm Beach, Fla., on or about Feb. 13. Police, however, say they have not been able to locate an incident report. "We continue to receive inquiries regarding an alleged incident involving professional athlete, Aaron Hernandez. After conducting research and based on the information that was received, the Miami-Dade Police Department does not have any documented incident on record," Det. Javier Baez said in a statement. "We will continue to research the incident, and as with any developing situation, the details may change."

On the surface this seems bogus, however the old "smoke=fire" rule comes into play. Lotta smoke on Hernandez right now.

It ain't easy being a tight end in New England right now.

I can't imagine anyone getting shot in the face (no matter how little damage was done) and not reporting it to the authorities or getting medical attention. What does bother me is Hernandez being uncooperative with the police in the matter of the possible murder of his associate.

He better hang on to his tight end as it looks like prison.

The National Felons League never disappoints.

I hear Hoodie right now...."OK, Tim, we need tight ends really bad, so I need for you...."

That's funny!

One in jail one on the operating table. Being a tight end for the pats seems like a hazardous job

You can't give yourself a rimshot. Not unless you do a lot of yoga...

Uncooperative could be as simple as him not talking to police without a lawyer. Which given the circumstances, I would understand.

This civil suit smells funny though. First he says he didn't know who shot him, then he says it was a group of blacks and hispanics, now he says its Hernandez. If I lost an eye and had all these surgeries after being shot by an NFL player, you can bet I'd name him immediately so he could pay my medical bills.

He's a pro athlete so he won't have to serve any time in jail.

That's where I give my yellow lab the trophy. He gives himself the rimshot 20 times a day.

He'd better hope he doesn't become a 'wide receiver'.

Exactly. Any hospital ER who treated the guy for a gunshot wound has to call the cops.

Read the entire article rather than just what the interns posted.

There was a police report in February....the police in fact interviewed the guy AT THE HOSPITAL the nite that the shooting occurred.

You mean like Mike Vick, Plaxico Burress, and Chad Johnson didn't?

Isn't it amazing how NFL talk has gravitated to, assault, gunfire, murder (OJ), DUI's, arrests and general mayhem. What a proud legacy!
