Hernandez refutes report of ‘additional violations’ involving use of marijuana

04.27.10 at 9:17 pm ET

In response to a story about him failing multiple drug tests for marijuana as a collegian, Patriots’ draft pick Aaron Hernandez issued the following statement through the team Tuesday night:

‘€œLeading up to the draft, I provided every interested NFL team with all the information asked of me about football and my personal life. I was as candid as I could possibly be about everything, including my one single violation of the team’€™s substance testing policy over the course of three years at the University of Florida.  That is why I was very surprised and disappointed by the recent inaccurate report of additional violations.  I regret what happened, I learned from it and will make better decisions going forward.  I couldn’€™t be more excited about beginning my NFL career and representing the New England Patriots well.’€
