As CBS Boston points out, Alexander Bradley, who lost his right eye in the February incident in which he says Hernandez shot him in the face, is a convicted drug dealer.
Bradley, who re-filed his $100,000 lawsuit against Hernandez this week after it was dismissed because of a paperwork mistake, says the two were riding in a car together and that Hernandez aimed a gun at Bradley. Then, the gun allegedly went off, leading to the loss of Bradley's eye.
But in 2006, Bradley was sentenced to five years in prison for selling drugs, though that sentence was suspended after 18 months.
This past April, two months after the alleged confrontation that he had with Hernandez, Bradley was arrested and charged with burglary, disorderly conduct, assault and criminal mischief.
That case remains ongoing.
