Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable denied reports on Monday that he punched defensive assistant Randy Hanson in the jaw and caused injuries that required treatment at a hospital earlier this month.
According to AOL Fanhouse, Cable hit Hanson on Aug. 5 for unknown reasons. A report filed with the Napa Police Department describes an unnamed 41-year-old assistant coach being treated at the Queen of the Valley Hospital for a jaw injury, which the victim alleges was caused by an unidentified member of the Raiders coaching staff.
But Cable told ESPN's Mark Schlereth later Monday that no punches were thrown.
Hanson reportedly did not want to pursue the matter, but staff at the hospital alerted authorities, according to Fanhouse.com.
"The victim didn't even want any police action taken," Napa Police Lt. Brian McGovern told the Web site, "but we were following hospital policy that authorities be contacted in cases where there may have been an assault."
Hanson suffered a fractured jaw. McGovern said, according to the Web site, that the Napa Police consider the matter closed "unless we are re-contacted by the victim, and the victim changes their mind that they want us to follow through and pursue an investigation. At this point we're not doing anything else with it."
If Hanson wants to drop it and handle it internally, then oh well. I'd probably want to punch somebody in the face to if I had to take orders from Al Davis.
Does it make any sense that it takes 3 times to get a suspension for using a substance that is illegal to possess, but only 1 time to get a 4 game suspension should you use a legal substance that is banned as a steroid by the NFL?
