New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday morning, more than a week after a body was found near his home in Massachusetts.

The body of Odin Lloyd, 27, was found June 17 about one mile away from the tight end’s North Attleborough home. The death was ruled a homicide; Hernandez has not been named as a suspect in the case.

It was not clear why Hernandez, 23, was placed in handcuffs and put in a police cruiser just before 9 a.m. on Wednesday by Massachusetts State Police and North Attleborough Police. Authorities have searched his home, on the Rhode Island line not far from the Patriots’ stadium, several times over the past week.

A call to Hernandez’s attorney was not immediately returned.

Lloyd has been described as a semi-professional football player with unspecified ties to Hernandez, friends and family told NBC affiliate in Boston WHDH.

“My son is a wonderful child. He’s a family guy, he has not done anything to hurt anyone,” Lloyd’s mother Ursula Ward said. “First and foremost I would like to thank the person that found my son. I would like to say God put him in the right place at the right time.”

The Patriots have said they would withhold comment while the investigation is ongoing.

“I am aware of the reports, but I do not anticipate that we will be commenting publicly during an ongoing police investigation,” Patriots spokesman Stacey James said, according to the AP.

The Patriots drafted Hernandez in 2010. Last summer, the team gave Hernandez a five-year contract that is worth $40 million, including a signing bonus of $12.5 million.
