The police have acted on weeks of investigation and taken New England Patriot's Tight End Aaron Hernandez into custody.

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.

We don't know exactly why Hernandez was being taken into custody but he was put into the back of a marked police car.

State police have searched in and around Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough several times.

Hernandez and his attorney Michael Fee have made no comments.

Here's the Fox News coverage and video of Hernandez being taken into custody.
