Aaron Hernandez has seen his life transformed over the past 24 months - going from a professional NFL player with the New England Patriots to a prisoner with a life sentence and no chance of parole.
With a double murder trial slated to begin later this year, things could soon get even worse for the man convicted of the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Rather than keep his head down, though, Hernandez has found himself in even more trouble after a dramatic incident at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, reports today have revealed.
As reported by CNN, the former Patriots tight end is set to be disciplined by prison authorities after being involved in a gang-related fight.
A source close to the situation revealed that Hernandez acted as a lookout as one man entered another prisoner's cell to fight.
While officials investigate the incident Aaron Hernandez has been placed in a special management section of the facility.
As those who have been following Aaron Hernandez's fall from grace closely will know, this isn't the first behind the bars ill-discipline the ex-Patriots has been involved in.
Back in early 2013, whilst awaiting trial for the Odin Lloyd murder, Hernandez was hit with charges of assault and battery after being involved in a jail fight.
This certainly isn't the way Hernandez or his representatives would have liked this week, a potentially big one for the former NFL player, to play out.
It is believed that tomorrow could see a judge set a Boston trial date for the double murder of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Teixeira Furtado, 28. Hernandez is accused of killing both men during a drive by shooting in July of 2012.
When all combined there is no chance that Aaron Hernandez will again see the outside walls of prison. Judging by his alleged actions while serving time, the former Patriots man is doing little to keep his head down in the early stages of his life long sentence.
