Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is facing more charges. Hernandez was indicted Thursday on charges stemming from a jailhouse fight.

Bristol County Sheriff said in February that Hernandez, who was previously arrested and charged with murder, was involved in a jailhouse fight.

Hernandez was charged with assault and battery and threats to do bodily harm.

In March it became clear Hernandez would be indicted on these charges.

"I can just tell you that there was, you know, an altercation that took place between Mr. Hernandez and another inmate. I can't get into really the details now that it's gone to this level of complaint," Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said in March.

Hernandez has been in jail since June 26 when he was arrested for his possible involvement in the death of Odin Lloyd. The 24-year-old former Patriots tight end faces a total of six charges and previously pled "not guilty" to murder in the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.
