In some interesting timing, Aaron Hernandez was sued earlier this week for allegedly shooting a man in the face after an altercation at a Miami strip club.
Alexander S. Bradley filed a lawsuit against the Patriots tight end on June 13, according to TMZ. The two were leaving Tootsie’s Cabaret in the same car on Feb. 13, 2013 when Bradley said Hernandez pointed a gun at him. The gun allegedly discharged, hitting Bradley in the face.
Bradley claims he lost his right eye during the incident, required major surgery to reconstruct his face and suffered damage to his right hand and arm. Bradley also claims Hernandez did not have a license to carry the weapon.
The case was dismissed four days after the lawsuit was filed. TMZ reports that “all signs point to a settlement.”
Greg Bedard of Sports Illustrated confirms the lawsuit is real. He also says the matter is unresolved. TerezOwens.com received a tip in April that Hernandez had been linked to a shooting. Justia.com has a docket on the case.
