New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was led out of his home by police Wednesday morning and taken away in the back of a North Attleboro police cruiser, CBS Boston station WBZ-TV reports.

A Boston semi-pro football player was recently found dead in an industrial park a mile from Hernandez's house. Family members say the dead man, 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, was dating a woman whose sister is Hernandez's fiancee. Officials ruled the death a homicide but did not say how Lloyd died.
