Here's the press release announcing the Napa Police Department is re-opening its investigation into the alleged assault committed by Tom Cable on Randy Hanson on Aug. 5. It is important to note, however, that while the investigation is re-opened, no charged have yet been filed. Nor has the Napa District Attorney's office received a police report.

Napa Police Department
Press Release Information


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 21, 2009


Assault Investigation (Oakland Raiders)

On August 6, 2009, the Napa Police Department was dispatched to the Queen of the Valley Hospital regarding a report of an alleged assault that had occurred the previous day at the Raiders Training Camp Facilities in Napa, CA. The victim reported he had been assaulted by a staff member of the Raider's organization. The incident took place at approximately 10:00 AM on August 5, 2009.

Upon initial contact the victim did not want any police action or formal charges filed. The victim refused to identify the responsible or any potential witnesses. Due to a lack of information provided to the police department the case was closed. Since that time, new information has come to light which has resulted in the investigation to be re-opened. Due to this being an ongoing criminal investigation no other information will be provided at this time. Any future updates related to this case will be posted in the Press Releases section on the Napa Police Department's webpage at the following address:

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from sacbee.com. While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on sacbee.com and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
