Bears player calls Hernandez 'my guy' at double-murder trial

Posted March 29, 2017

Thompson was called by prosecutors Monday to testify about a Florida party he invited Hernandez to in February 2013.

The brother of the former New England Patriots player is former football star himself, serving as quarterback and team captain of the University of Connecticut Huskies while in college.

Thompson played with Hernandez at Florida and said they were like brothers.

He said he didn't ask what happened to Bradley, but testified everyone else the remained in the SUV were acting "normal".

A man who went clubbing with Aaron Hernandez in Florida the night Hernandez allegedly shot a friend to silence him about a double killing returns to the witness stand Tuesday. Hernandez is also charged with witness intimidation and accused of shooting Bradley in the face because he feared Bradley would tell authorities about the slayings.

But Crawford also said he was dropped off at one point to run an errand, and that when he was picked up Bradley was no longer part of the group.

Thompson said he met Hernandez's former best friend, Alexander Bradley, on at least two occasions during that time period, but did not have any close interaction with him. But the defense argued that Crawford felt pressured by police when asked about what he remembered. Baez contended during opening statements that Bradley - not Hernandez - shot the men over a drug deal.

"Are you done", Judge Locke said after a heated exchange.
