DARTMOUTH, Massachusetts - A spokesperson for The Bristol County House of Corrections has just announced that a plot to break out former New England Patriots wide receiver Aaron Hernandez out of jail has been foiled.
Two men identified as Sheridan Woodbottom, 55, and Dumont Lapinski, 51, were caught by a private investigator sending text messages to each other with the highly elaborate plans to break out the former NFL star.
Hernandez who has gone from being player #81 to being inmate #174594 claims that he has no knowledge of the plot.
Woodbottom and Lapinski had reportedly rented an Apache helicopter from Helicopters 'R' Us and were going to use it to break Hernandez out of prison and fly him down to Cancun, Mexico.
According to Tango Brisket with Sports Territory Magazine the pair were in the process of selling Aaron's $1.3 million home.
The two were to have received 40 percent ($520,000) from the sale of the home and Hernandez would have ended up with $780,000.
SIDENOTE: Tango Brisket is reporting that Woodbottom and Lapinski will now be joining Hernandez at The Bristol County House of Corrections.
