According to the shocking document, Dennis was arrested for possession of marijuana in September 1990, when Aaron was just ten months old. Dennis was ultimately found guilty of the crime and ordered to pay a fine of $200.
Then, in April 1989, months before Aaron was even born, Dennis Hernandez was arrested for breach of peace. The professional athlete’s dad was found guilty of the charge and ordered to pay $75.
The late football star grew up in Bristol, Connecticut with his brother, Jonathan, and his parents, Dennis and Terri. Aaron's father died when he was 16 years old from complications of a hernia surgery.
Now, disturbing details about the professional athlete's childhood are coming to light. In a new podcast about his life, Gladiator, hosted by the Boston Globe Spotlight Team, Aaron's brother revealed Dennis regularly beat his children. Jonathan claimed he and Aaron lived in fear of their dad.
Plus, Jonathan revealed Dennis’s extreme opposition to gay men. As RadarOnline.com readers know, Aaron's fellow inmate claimed to be the football star's gay lover behind bars immediately following his death.
Plus, Aaron's childhood friend, Dennis SanSoucie, recently claimed the two had an intimate relationship while growing up. SanSoucie said he believed Aaron covered his body in tattoos to mask his bisexuality.
SanSoucie and Aaron’s brother agreed Aaron’s father would not approve of his bisexuality.
