Napa DA declines to file charges against Cable

Napa County district attorney Gary Lieberstein chose not to press charges against Raiders coach Tom Cable for allegedly assaulting assistant Randy Hanson, NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports.

Hanson sent a text message to La Canfora with the news just before Lieberstein officially announced the decision.

Cable was accused of attacking Hanson on Aug. 5 during a meeting at the team’s training-camp hotel in Napa. Hanson went to the hospital to be treated for a broken jaw, but he didn’t immediately tell authorities who assaulted him.

Hanson eventually cooperated with police. The police forwarded their investigation to Lieberstein’s office earlier this month.

The NFL issued a statement shortly after the DA made his announcement.

“We will review the decision announced earlier today by the Napa District Attorney and the facts developed in the underlying investigation,” the league said. “Following that review, we will take appropriate action, if any, under our policies.”
