Dye, lawyer still waiting to hear back from NCAA

The criminal complaint filed by Hurricanes football player Dyron Dye against former NCAA investigator Rich Johanningmeier will not lead to charges being filed.

Spokesman Ed Griffith of the state attorney's office told The Miami Herald last week there was no evidence that a crime had been committed even though Dye said Johanningmeier "coerced him into providing favorable answers for [the NCAA's] investigation."

Darren Heitner, Dye's attorney, said he and his client are waiting with much anticipation to see what the NCAA plans to do with the 6-5, 261-pound's eligibility. He interviewed with the NCAA for a third time last month. 

"Right now there is no indication his eligibility is at risk," Heitner said. "That said, during his third interview they mentioned there was a potential 10.1 [unethical conduct] violation. We haven't heard from the NCAA since the conclusion of the third interview. We hope that if there is any negative consequence they make it public knowledge quickly."

Florida Gator attorney Huntley Johnson was asked specifically Thursday whether he was surprised that Aaron Hernandez found himself entangled in a murder investigation up in Boston.

Johnson paused.

"Disappointed," he said without really answering the question.

The mystic message behind Johnson's response wasn't hard to decipher.

Johnson was disappointed.

But not surprised.

The fact is, nobody in Gainesville is totally shocked that Hernandez seems to be a person of interest in a homicide probe. Especially not Johnson, the man who is famous for not only representing UF athletes but making their troubles disappear into the legal limbo land of dropped charges and deferred prosecutions.

When Urban Meyer coached in Gainesville, we media cynics used to call attorney Huntley Johnson the most valuable member of UF's staff even though he doesn't officially work for the Gators. Even so, he was Meyer's ingenious and innovative "defensive coordinator" because he was so effective at defending so many of the Urbanator's gun-toting, bar-fighting, women beating miscreants and malcontents.

Some athletes just always seem to find trouble, and Hernandez was certainly one of them at UF. It started in his freshman season when he was arrested after getting into a fight with a bouncer at a bar near campus. He was a juvenile then and got off with a slap on the wrist.

According to the Sporting News, Hernandez also had controlled-substance issues and was suspended for failed drug tests later in his tenure at UF. Of course, there were and still are numerous other Gators who fit that profile.

Hernandez was among four Gator football players questioned in a 2007 shooting incident in Gainesville. None of the players was arrested, but detectives questioned them about the shootings of Corey Smith and Justin Glass on the Sunday morning after Florida lost to Auburn in 2007.

According to an Orlando Sentinel report at the time, police said Smith, 28, and Glass, 19, were driving around in traffic about 2:30 a.m. when a man began shooting into their car. Smith was critically wounded in the head while Glass was shot in the arm. Hernandez declined to discuss the case with reporters back then and was never charged with any crime, although many still believe he was the shooter.

The body of Odin Lloyd, 27, was found Monday in an industrial park near Hernandez's home in Boston. He had been shot in the back of the head. According to police, Lloyd was a friend of Hernandez's and was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend. Lloyd's body was discovered near a vehicle that had been rented by Hernandez.

Not only that, but a cell phone used by Hernandez was handed over to investigators "in pieces'' by his attorneys, the ABC sources said. Police apparently also want to know why several house cleaners were hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez's palatial estate.

And there's more. In another case, a South Florida man has filed a civil lawsuit claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after an argument at a strip club in February. The man, Alexander Bradley, claims the gun shot caused him to lose his right eye.

By my count, Hernandez has now been at least questioned in three shootings. A show of hands, please, for those of you who have ever been questioned in just one shooting? At the very least, wouldn't you say Hernandez is hanging out at the wrong places with the wrong crowd?

Then again, some of those who knew him at UF might just tell you the other side of the story.

Maybe Hernandez is the wrong crowd or just part of the Gator crowd we all know too well.

I need a new alias. Everyone seems to have figured out all the other ones I used. Can I get some help with that??????

The fact is nobody in Gainesville is shocked that Aaron Hernandez is a suspect in a homicide probe. Especially not Huntley Johnson, the man who is famous for not only representing countless UF athletes charged in serious criminal matters, but making their troubles disappear into the legal limbo land of dropped charges and deferred prosecutions.

When Urban Meyer coached in Gainesville (and now Muschamp), media realists called attorney Huntley Johnson the most valuable member of UF's staff even though he doesn't “officially” work for the Gators. Even so, he was Meyer's and now Muschamp’s ingenious and innovative "defensive coordinator" because he was and still is so effective at defending so many of the Urbanator's and the Bag-Man’s gun-toting, bar-fighting, women beating miscreants and malcontents.
