Former Florida Gator and current New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was handcuffed and led away from his home by police Wednesday morning.
The charges are still unknown at this time, but they would stem from his alleged connection with the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Reports had originally said Hernandez was not a suspect in the 27-year-old man's death, but now things seem to be pointing to his somehow being a part of it, including, allegedly, "obstruction of justice."

Lloyd died from several gunshot wounds.
Hernandez and two other men were with the victim in a rental car on the night of the murder. The men left a bar that night, and Hernandez went back home with the other two men but without Lloyd.
Cops searched Hernandez's home, and a source told Fox 25 that forensic evidence placed a vehicle driven by him at the scene of the crime.
