Ex-New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez is accused of shooting a man in the face outside a Miami strip bar earlier this year.

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will not respond to allegations in a federal lawsuit saying that he shot a man in the face outside a Miami strip club in February.

Alexander Bradley, 30, filed his complaint against Hernandez on Wednesday, with the ex-NFL star invoking his Fifth Amendment right, which protects people from incriminating themselves.

NBC Sports reports that Bradley has accused Hernandez of using a gun on him following a disagreement outside the bar earlier this year.

Bradley is seeking upwards of $100,000 (£61,000) in personal damages for the incident.

Hernandez was released by the Patriots in June after he was charged with the murder of 27-year-old Oden Lloyd in Massachusetts.

He maintains his innocence in the killing of Lloyd.
