QUINCY, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – The man that claims Aaron Hernandez shot him in the face during a dispute at a strip club had been pulled over for OUI while driving Hernandez the previous month, a police report says.
According to a Massachusetts State Police report, Alexander Bradley was driving an SUV with Hernandez in the front seat at 80 to 105 mph on Interstate 93 on Jan. 28.
The report says that when the officer was able to pull the car over, Hernandez yelled out the passenger side window, "Trooper, I'm Aaron Hernandez, it's ok!"
Police said Bradley had a .148% BAC. He was arrested and charged with OUI and negligent operation, among other charges. A tow truck driver gave Hernandez and another passenger a ride to Patriot Place. Police said the vehicle they were riding in was rented in Hernandez's name.
Bradley's attorney told FOX 25 that Bradley said he had been working as Hernandez's assistant when the two got into a fight outside a Florida strip club and Hernandez fired a gun at his face in February.
Police say Bradley originally said he didn't know who shot him, but later alleged that it was Hernandez.
Bradley's attorney said Bradley lost his right eye and the use of his right arm.
