Michael Silver and Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports report Beleaguered and injured Oakland Raiders assistant coach Randy Hanson and his lawyer reacted strongly Thursday to a report that witnesses did not corroborate his claim that he was assaulted by head coach Tom Cable in August.
Hanson, who suffered a broken jaw and two cracked teeth during the alleged Aug. 5 incident, went so far as to offer to take a lie detector test and offered to pay for Cable to take one himself. Hanson has also agreed to be interviewed a second time next week by Napa, Calif., police investigating the incident.
“I will take a lie detector test and a drug test, and I will pay for it – and I’ll pay for Tom Cable to take those tests as well,” Hanson told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday.
However, one source who talked to Yahoo! and is highly familiar with the case said that based on statements given to police by Raiders assistants Willie Brown, John Marshall and Lionel Washington, the case is “really iffy.”
