New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has apparently been served with an arrest warrant at his home this morning in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.

Television news reports show Hernandez being led from the house in handcuffs by law enforcement officers.

Exact charges are not known, but speculation yesterday focused on the possibility that Hernandez would be charged with  obstruction of justice due to his alleged involvement in the destruction of evidence in the case of semipro football player Odin Lloyd’s death earlier this month.

On Monday, police searched the woods and other areas behind and around Hernandez’s house searching for discarded evidence from the killing. It is not clear if, or where, they found any leads.

The NFL has banned Hernandez from its facilities, but has not made an official statement about the case yet.
