Napa police investigating Raiders incident

The Napa Police Department announced Friday on its Web site that it is investigating the incident that occurred at Raiders training-camp headquarters on Aug. 5, when assistant coach Randy Hanson told police he suffered injuries that resulted in him being treated at an emergency room.

As we have been reporting, Hanson claims he was injured by Raiders coach Tom Cable in an altercation during a meeting that day, according to sources. Cable has denied any physical confrontation.

Hanson is now being represented by attorney John McGuinn, who was set to turn over medical records to Napa police today, sources said, as well as cooperate with any investigation. Hanson refused to name the person responsible for his facial injuries at the time police interviewed him at Queen of the Valley Medical Center. Hanson suffered a fractured jaw that day, according to a source close to him, and then later was evaluated for lower jaw pain.

Hanson has yet to speak publicly about the incident and hoped to resolve the issue with the Raiders internally, including multiple meetings with owner Al Davis, according to a source. Hanson wanted to retain his current position but instead was offered a job in the personnel department.

Messages with McGuinn haven’t been returned, and the Raiders aren’t commenting on the situation, other than to call it an “internal” matter.

The NFL also is investigating the incident, and now the police are doing the same.
