Talk a about an easy and convenient way to serve a subpoena to someone who’s base in in Florida and travels a lot.
Massachusetts State Police waited outside the Miami Dolphins locker room at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough to serve center Mike Pouncey with a subpoena in connection with the ongoing Aaron Hernandez case, according to NFL.com’s Albert Breer.
“Organizationally, we do not have a comment,” Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene told SI.com. “And Mike Pouncey does not have a comment.”
While Pouncey hasn’t been linked to any wrongdoing, the subpoena reportedly is coming from a Grand Jury. Hernandez is accused in the murder of his associate Odin Lloyd and has been held in the Bristol County jail without bail as he awaits trial.
Hernandez played football at the University of Florida with Mike Pouncey and his twin brother, Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey. Hernandez and the Pouncey brothers have been linked before.
Both Maurkice and Mike Pouncey’s names were mentioned in a 2007 incident report, released by Gainesville (Fla.) police, about a double shooting in which investigators wanted to talk to Hernandez — but Hernandez invoked his right to counsel.
In July, the brothers were photographed wearing hats at a Miami Beach nightclub that said “Free Hernandez.” Maurkice Pouncey later issued an apology. Mike Pouncey declined to comment.
