No criminal charges against Raiders HC Tom Cable

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Oakland Raiders Coach Tom Cable will not face criminal charges for his role in a training camp incident involving one of the team's assistant coaches, Randy Hanson.

Gary Lieberstein, the district attorney for Napa County, Calif., announced the decision Thursday.

"Our duty is to do the right thing for the right reasons," Lieberstein said, according to the Associated Press. "Under the facts and circumstances of this case, it would be a miscarriage of justice to pursue criminal charges and we will not ask our citizens to give up their valuable time for jury duty, nor will we allow our criminal justice system to be compromised."

Cable had been accused of assaulting Hanson and breaking Hanson's jaw. Hanson told Yahoo Sports during an interview that Cable threatened to kill him during the alleged confrontation and, according to Hanson, knocked Hanson from a chair into a piece of furniture.
