DARTMOUTH, Mass. - Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson announced Thursday that his office has filed a criminal complaint to charge Aaron Hernandez with assault and battery after a jailhouse fight.

The fight, which took place Feb. 24, was between Hernandez and another inmate while the two were supposed to be in isolation.

According to Hodgson the other inmate will not face any 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," Hodgson said.

The Sheriff's complaint will be reviewed by a clerk magistrate who will then determine whether Hernandez will have a hearing before a possible arraignment.

Hodgson said he was not able to comment on how these charges will impact the other criminal charges he is facing in relation to the alleged murder of Odin Lloyd.
