OT: Mike Pouncy served grand Jury subpoena (Hernandez Case)

Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on October 27th, 2013 at 9:02 PM

So less than an hour after today's Miami Dolphin vs New England Patriots game dolphins offensive lineman Mike Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena.  The Mass State Police served him as a "material witness" and are focused on multiple transactions between Pouncey and Hernandez.

Should be noted Hernandez and Pouncey were teammates at University of Florida and were roommates during that time.

If it is as NBCSports reported and that this is regarding Hernandez having alleged involvement in interstate gun trafficking, then I wonder if this is a federal grand jury subpoena that we're discussing in the case of Pouncey. Since it was served by the state police though, perhaps that is not the case. According to NBC, the Patriots and Pouncey are not sharing anything at this particular moment.

I thought the same thing, I assume that the Fed's would become involved if it can be proven that the guns traveled across state lines, or took place when Hernandez was in Massachusetts and Pouncey in Florida.  Also seems like all of this caught Miami GM/Owner off guard and they were scrambling in the locker room.

Makes sense, after that whole "free Hernandez" hat debacle, Mike's brother Maukice immediately apologized.  Mike remained quiet and issued nothing.

Aaron Hernandez definitely kept busy. It blows my mind that he could play football, go to practice, lift weights smoke angeldust, tweak out at a flophouse, run guns, possibly sell drugs, allegedly kill people, and hit the club at night. That guy has some serious energy to be able to do all that ... AND be a Pro Bowl caliber player on top of it all.

Sudden death of father at 16, rough family life, Urbz and 7:30 a.m bible studies:

Recruited by Gators assistant coach Steve Addazio, who grew up just outside Bristol, Hernandez visited campus for the 2006 spring game and made his choice.

It was a hard time at home after his dad's death.

"It was a mess with a lot of family issues, fighting and disagreements," he says. "I'm the person who keeps both sides of my family together, and when I wasn't around it was crazy."

Hernandez played in every game his freshman season, starting three, but off the field he was still reeling.

"It was a rough process, and I didn't know what to do for him," Terri says. "He would rebel. It was very, very hard, and he was very, very angry. He wasn't the same kid, the way he spoke to me. The shock of losing his dad, there was so much anger."

Says D.J., who is three years older, "He was just lost."

Meyer stepped in when he realized a good kid was headed down the wrong path. "Urban became his father more or less and the team was his family," Terri says.

Every morning, Hernandez arrived at Meyer's office at 7:30 and read the Bible with his coach.

One day in February 2008 when Hernandez was struggling, Meyer met with him at noon in his office.

"It was a 10-hour meeting. We finished at my house at 10 o'clock. Then it continued the next day," Meyer says. "When your guy, your idol, your soul is taken from you, how do you deal with that? I just think there's a part of his life that was not there. He needed discipline; he needed someone to talk to."

Says Hernandez, "He helped me through a lot of that stuff. I would have horrible days, and he taught me to put things aside and work through it. We have a great relationship even though he wants to kill me half the time."

How quickly one's life can got to hell in a picnic basket.
