New details have emerged in the case of the  former New England Patriots' receiver Aaron Hernandez's assault on a fellow prisoner at Bristol County Jail yesterday.

According to TMZSports, who reported the initial incident, Hernandez's victim was wearing handcuffs and so was unable to defend himself against the former professional football player's vicious attack.

TMZ's source says: "since the victim's hands were restrained, he could barely defend himself from Aaron's assault, which we're told was brutal."

According to the site, the two men had a history of disagreements and conflict with the victim apparently saying derogatory things about Hernandez recently.

The Bristol County Sheriff said he was investigating why the two men were in a hallway at the same time. It seems as though Hernandez was allowed a walk through the hallways of the jail without cuffs but jail officials did not check to see if other inmates would be around.

Hernandez is currently in the facility without bail and is awaiting trial, accused of the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.
