Former NFL tight-end Aaron Hernandez has provided numerous major headlines for news outlets across the world in the last nine months, since he was arrested on suspicion of murder. 

He is currently in jail awaiting his trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd, but that hasn't stopped him getting in trouble with the news that he both punched and struck a fellow inmate, according to TMZ Sports

The inmate victim concerned is 25-year-old Andrew Booker, and he's now understood to be reluctant to go forward and testify against Hernandez

The reasons for this is because Booker claims he does not want to 'be a rat', and it's that statement that clearly shows there is an element of fear that he feels towards the NFL star.

After all the former Patriots man did beat him, but it would be unjust of us to suggest he is exerting pressure on Booker to not rat on him. 

The former Pats man was charged with assault and battery for the incident, but according to Booker's attorney his client does not want to press charges. 

"He doesn’t want to go after Hernandez. He doesn't want to be a rat,” Maloney said.

"They were having a verbal feud. It escalated, got out of control and Booker was assaulted while handcuffed."
