An uncle of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was legally drunk and possibly high on drugs when he died last year in a freak accident, police say.
Robert Valentine's toxicology report came back positive for both alcohol and cocaine after he crashed a scooter early in the morning August 3 in Mr Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Connecticut, he was also wearing sunglasses.
Mr Valentine's blood alcohol level was 0.19 per cent, more than double the legal limit, the Hartford Courant said, citing a police report.
The combination of alcohol, drugs and sunglasses in the dark led investigators to conclude Mr Valentine, 49, was operating the scooter 'in a negligent manner' when the deadly crash occurred in the dark.

"Thaddeus Singleton III, who is married to a cousin of Aaron Hernandez, died in June car crash. He was found to have had Cocaethylene, Cocaine, Phencyclidine, Benzoylecgonine and Oxycodone in his system, according to a police report cited by the Bristol Press.
Tabitha Perry, who has a child with Mr Singleton, survived the crash but was found dead last month in a Southington, CT, apartment. That death is still under investigation, according to the Courant.
All three were due to talk to investigators about Mr Hernandez's involvement in the Odin Lloyd case.

“... he was also wearing sunglasses ...”
Remind me to take off my sunglasses before I die in a wreck.
Some people just living the libertopian dream
New England is better off by a count of two...
How come when you get pulled over by the cops on suspicion of DUI, they can obtain the results almost instantly yet it takes almost half a year in this case?
Are you sure he didn’t have a half-cousin once removed on his great grandfather’s side who once was arrested for moonshining?
An athlete’s uncle is news?
At least he looked cool when they zipped the body bag.
I don’t usually follow sports but I found it interesting that three people who investigators wanted to talk with all died. Bummer for the investigation.
That’s how I want to go!
I think it’s more of a case of Hernandez’s friends and family are dirtbags. Dirtbags tend to die from their life choices.
>>I think he is news because he was part of the murder case against Hernandez. He is the third person connected to Hernandez to die of unnatural causes. It looks to me like Hernandez is tying up loose ends before his trial.<<
Thanks for clarifying.
Nowadays, anything/anyone connected with an even near-celebrity gets too much attention.
In the meantime, does anyone know if Hernandez is related to the clintons? Sounds like the same MO.
I think that “legally drunk and possibly high on drugs” removes it from the ‘freak accident’ category...
