(CNN) — Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was involved in an “altercation with another inmate” at the Bristol County House of Correction and Jail in Massachusetts, a county sheriff’s department spokesman said Wednesday.

Hernandez, 24, who is being held on first-degree murder and weapons charges in the shooting death last year of his friend Odin Lloyd, had the altercation with an unidentified inmate Tuesday, said Bernie Sullivan, a spokesman for the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office.

Neither man was seriously injured. Sullivan said the incident was under investigation.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told CNN that jail officials will be looking at how the two came into contact because “no more than one inmate is supposed to be out at a time” in the unit where Hernandez is housed.

Hernandez’s lawyer could not be reached for comment.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
