Disgraced NFL player Aaron Hernandez was 'apparently high' before he allegedly executed his former friend, MailOnline can reveal today.
Prosecutors plan to introduce evidence that includes security surveillance video taken at the gas station where Hernandez bought a cigar and bubble gum twenty minutes before he picked up Odin Lloyd.
Lloyd, 27, a semi-professional football player, who would be found dead later that same day in an industrial park close to the former football star's mansion in North Attleborough, Massachussetts.

'He danced in his own headlights for so long the gas station attendant turned off the outside lights to get rid of him,' said a high-ranking law enforcement source. 'He was apparently high, or very much appeared to be.'

Bristol County prosecutor Sam Sutter would not comment on specific video, but court records filed by investigators in the case state that video shows Hernandez stopped at the Blue Hill Express Service Station at 2.09 am on June 17 last year and purchased a 'cigar and Bubble Yum cotton candy flavored gum'.

Investigative sources told MailOnline that Hernandez was a heavy user of PCP, alcohol and hydroponic marijuana.
A manager at the Blue Hill Express Service Station who asked not to be identified confirmed the dancing video, and said all of the security footage had been turned over to investigators.
