Aaron Hernandez tormented prison guards by kicking his cell door, screaming at the top of his lungs for attention and threatening to kill their families, a new book has revealed.

The disgraced ex-Patriots star spent 10 months in Bristol County Jail in 2013 and 2014 while awaiting trial for murder.

Years - Security - Prison - Weeks - Murders

It was three years before he would kill himself in the maximum security prison weeks after being acquitted of two separate murders and with plans to appeal his first conviction.

In his new book All-American Murder, author James Patterson describes some of the many incidents of bad behavior Hernandez was disciplined for at Bristol County Jail.

Sheriff - Thomas - Hodgson - Hernandez - Allies

He also quotes Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, one of Hernandez's only allies inside the jail who said he tried to save his soul with bible study before he was moved out to a different facility.

Part of the book was published by The New York Post on Friday and reveals some of the many ways Hernandez tried to manipulate and agitate guards.

Reports - Door - Cell - Time

They described, in incident reports, how he would scream for them and kick his door until they came to his cell then ask them what the time was.

On other occasions, the guards felt as though he was threatening their families.

Hernandez - Food - Honey - Buns - Detention

Hernandez would sneak food including Honey Buns into detention areas and wolf as many of the treats down as he could before they were confiscated, they said.

He also had a tendency towards violence and once punched a fellow inmate who he thought had looked at him the wrong way.

Inmate - Patriots - Fan

The inmate was a Patriots fan.

The assault took place on February 25, 2014. According to one officer's account of it, Hernandez emerged from his unlocked cell at the time his victim, who was shackled, was being escorted by an officer down the hallway.
