Jimmy Hernandez is an major antagonist-turned anti-hero in Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas.

He was played by Armando Riesco.


In 1992, Jimmy Hernandez became a member of C.R.A.S.H. He collaborated with Frank Tenpenny and Edmund Pulaski, who often insulted him and demeaned him, because they did not like him much nor did they trust him too much. He was going to be an honest and law-abiding policeman, but he was forced by Frank and Eddie to kill Ralph Pendelbury, who had been beaten by them.

Events from game

Jimmy appears several times in the game along with other members of C.R.A.S.H. In the game, Hernandez speaks only once - after Carl's return from his mother's funeral on Grove Street, he calls him on behalf of Tenpenny and Pulaski, warning him not to leave the city. More of his issues can be heard during The Introduction. At a later stage of the game, having enough of corruption and crimes committed by colleagues from work, he reported on them. When Tenpenny gets Carl's files burdening Jimmy, he gets a shovel in the head, and Pulaski gets the job of seeing Carl buried Hernandez's body. Hernandez later wakes up and attacks Pulaski, but he turns around and kills him with a shot in the chest. Hernandez's testimony made it possible for Tenpenny to be temporarily arrested, but he was cleared of charges as a result of lack of evidence, which resulted in a riot in Los Santos.
