Who amongst us hasn’t wished to whip a brick at an ESPN constructing, be it the headquarters in Bristol, Conn., or considered one of its few now-shuttered ESPN Zones? I do know if I walked by the window the place Get Up is shot in New York, I’d decide up the heaviest piece of refuse I might discover and heave it at Mike Greenberg’s face. That’s why I’m on the aspect of Dennis “D.J.” Hernandez, Aaron Hernandez’s brother, who was just lately arrested after he allegedly threw a brick at ESPN’s headquarters.
D.J., 36, was introduced in Thursday after he allegedly took an Uber to the Bristol compound and threw a plastic bag containing a brick and a be aware on workplace grounds. I actually, actually, actually wish to know what his driver considered the entire thing. I imply, what do you say when your fare will get out of the automobile and tells you to maintain the engine operating?
The automobile was turned away on the safety gate, per a TMZ report, and Hernandez apparently simply flung the bundle onto ESPN property. He was charged with second-degree breach of the peace, a misdemeanor, on March 23.
Nevertheless, should you’re like me, you wish to know what the be aware stated, so let me share what was allegedly scribbled on it.
“To all media retailers,
“It’s about time you all realeyes [sic] the have an effect on media has on all members of the family. Because you’re a world broad chief perhaps you may lead how media and messages are delivered brick by brick. Clear it up!
“Yours actually, Dennis J. Hernandez.”
Grammatical errors apart, it’s troublesome to not really feel form of dangerous for D.J. We all know his brother’s story all too nicely, and it’s clearly nonetheless gnawing at him. Whereas nobody does, or definitely ought to, have empathy for Aaron, I can’t think about the ache of a member of the family falling from grace in such a tragic, heinous, and public means.
D.J. is now banned from ESPN’s premises (clearly) and may very well be arrested for trespassing if he returns (no duh). I don’t know if Hernandez has any regrets, however my remorse from that is that the bagged brick didn’t discover Chris Berman’s windshield.
