BOSTON, MA – Alexander Bradley appeared before a judge Tuesday for less than a minute, for a pre-trial. The hearing stems from a bizarre police encounter in late January. Officers say it started with an apparent chase on I-93 and ended with his arrest on drunk driving charges.

Ex-Patriots super star Aaron Hernandez, a friend of Bradley’s, was a passenger in the car who apparently didn’t hesitate a moment to let police know who he was. Court paperwork shows when the they were pulled over, Hernandez yelled, “Trooper, I’m Aaron hernandez, it’s OK.”

Bradley walked out of the courthouse making no comment on the charges, but could be a key player in Hernandez’s legal battle.  A Connecticut judge has ordered him to go before a secret grand jury on Wednesday.

If Bradley’s name seems familiar, that’s because it is, he’s the same man that just weeks after being arrested for drunk driving says he was shot in the face by Hernandez in florida.

Bradley filed a civil suit against Hernandez, his attorney saying he lost his right eye, and he’s looking for lots of money. The civil suit was filed just days before Hernandez was arrested on murder charges, accused of orchestreating the execution of Odin Lloyd.
