Jailed former NFL star Aaron Hernandez was involved in a fight with another inmate, officials said. The incident reportedly happened in a common area at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, Mass, where the onetime New England Patriots tight end is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to a murder charge in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Hernandez, who is kept alone in a cell, and the other inmate were apparently involved in an altercation despite the fact that only one prisoner is supposed to be in that area at a time, officials said.

Francisco Hernandez was a fiercely independent man, refusing help from family and neighbors - even firing Meals on Wheels - as he moved into old age at his Mount Washington home. So it's not surprising that the 89-year-old World War II Purple Heart recipient was home alone with his bulldog, Nero, when a fire late Friday tore through the tiny cottage he lived in for the last 40 years. Hernandez's body was found Saturday among the charred remains of the structure that sits on a winding, narrow street in the 500 block of West Avenue 44. His dog survived the fire.

SACRAMENTO -- The state's ethics agency is investigating whether political funds that went to the 2010 campaign of Assemblyman Roger Hernandez (D-West Covina) were laundered to disguise their true source, according to court documents filed this week. The state Fair Political Practices Commission said in court papers it is seeking bank records from Aldo A. Flores, an attorney who has represented Hernandez, as it looks at $3,900 provided by Flores' law firm to Hernandez's campaign in 2009.

TUCSON - He held her in an upright position against his chest to keep her from drowning in her own blood and applied pressure to her head wound. It was then that Daniel Hernandez Jr. remembered a television show he watched when he was 10 years old. It was about brain injuries and he knew he had to keep Rep. Gabrielle Giffords engaged. He kept asking her questions, such as whether she knew she'd been shot. She'd reply with a squeeze of the hand, move two fingers or give a thumbs up. His actions on Jan. 8, 2011, helped save Giffords' life and thrust Hernandez, then a 20-year-old intern for the Arizona Democrat, into the national limelight.

Cpl. Rudy Hernandez, a son of California migrant workers who fought in the Korean War and was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1952, died Saturday at Womack Army Medical Center in Fayetteville, N.C.. He was 82 and had been diagnosed recently with cancer and other ailments. Hernandez, a fixture at Fayetteville veterans events, was grand marshal of the city's Veterans Day Parade last month. In August, Fort Bragg's Warrior Transition Battalion Complex was rededicated in his name. It was just after 2 a.m. on May 31, 1951, when Cpl. Hernandez felt the warm trickle of blood from a shrapnel wound on his head.
