FALL RIVER, Massachusetts — A man who sued Aaron Hernandez over being shot in the face in Florida has taken the stand in the former New England Patriots player's murder trial.
But prosecutors are not allowed to ask Alexander Bradley about the shooting, which happened a few months before the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd. The defense tried unsuccessfully to block Bradley's testimony.
Bradley said Wednesday, outside the presence of the jury, that Hernandez often said helicopters and police were following him, but the judge ruled that Bradley could not testify about that.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in Lloyd's killing. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.
Bradley says he got into an argument with Hernandez after leaving a Florida strip club in February 2013 and was shot between the eyes.
