According to multiple reports Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has finally been taken into custody by police as part of the investigation into the murder of 27-year old Odin Lloyd.

Officers reportedly entered Hernandez' home at approximately 8:45am this morning, five days after reports began swirling on Friday that he would be arrested.  Hernandez, who was wearing a white t-shirt red shorts and sneakers, was escorted out of his home in handcuffs.

This comes after a week of police searches into the tight end's North Attleboro home, which is located about a mile away from where Lloyd's body was found.  At least three search warrants have been issued in connection with the investigation, and the news comes on the heels of yesterday's statement from Hernandez' attorney who claimed his client was the subject of “Misinformation and False Reports”.

Massachusetts state police Tweeted a few minutes ago, "Aaron Hernandez being booked at N. Attleboro Police Station. Will be brought to Attleboro District Ct for arraignment."

It is not yet known if he has been charged with any role in Lloyd's death, although they also Tweeted that the charges, "will be revealed at his arraignment in Attleboro District Court later today."
