How Long Before Raiders' Coach Is Arrested?

It appears that Oakland Raiders' head coach Tom Cable is going to need a lawyer soon, following the explosive allegations that he not only broke the jaw of one of his assistants, but choked the guy and yelled "I'm am going to kill you; I'm going to kill you." According to the National Football Post, the assistant, Randy Hanson, has decided to cooperate with Napa police and hand over his medical records, which prove that his jaw was fractured. Cable, as a result, could face felony assault charges, which would more than likely force the NFL to suspend him, thereby putting his future coaching career in doubt.

Hanson initially refused to talk to the cops in the hopes that whole thing would blow over and he could go back to work. But then Raiders' owner Al Davis refused to reintate him, in what appears to be another classic case of blaming the victim, so Hanson decided to get an attorney himself and now plans to tell police what happened. Cable apparently had been unhappy with Hanson for some time, before he allegedly attacked him.
