Around 8:45 this morning, Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested at his mansion in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, amid an investigation into the June 17 murder of his friend, 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Lloyd, whose body was found about a mile from Hernandez's home, was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee and was reportedly out at a bar with Hernandez and others on the night he was killed.

There is no word on the charges against Hernandez. The Massachusetts State Police tweeted that no charge will be released until after Hernandez's arraignment in court, scheduled for later today:
