BOSTON (NBC Sports) -- New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will reportedly be charged with obstruction of justice in connection with the death of Odin Lloyd.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030, citing an unnamed law enforcement source, reports that an arrest warrant has been issued on a charge of obstruction of justice. The report added that additional charges against Hernandez are possible.

Police reportedly believe that Hernandez destroyed footage from his home security system, broke his camera into pieces and had his home professionally cleaned shortly after the death of Lloyd, a 27-year-old man who has been described as an "associate" of Hernandez.

The WBZ report comes on the heels of a Sports Illustrated report on Thursday that said Hernandez is likely to be arrested. It is still not clear when or where the arrest would take place.
