Napa Valley Police have investigated the incident for more than a month but Commander Andy Lewis said they are not prepared to release details yet. Hanson initially refused to cooperate with police but handed over medical records during a 90-minute police interview Friday in California, attorney John McGuinn told the Web site.
McGuinn, who called the incident “a textbook case of felony assault,” said Hanson continues to be paid by the Raiders but was told to stay away from the team facility.
McGuinn said police told him they had interviewed several potential witnesses. McGuinn said that Hanson, Cable, and Raiders defensive coaches Lionel Washington, John Marshall and Willie Brown were in a meeting room at the time of the confrontation.
The NFL has said it is investigating the incident, but McGuinn said that neither he nor Hanson, 41, has been contacted by the league.
Raiders spokesman John Herrera did not immediately return messages, the Web site reported. Cable, in his second season as the head coach, initially refused to talk about the incident and later denied striking Hanson.
McGuinn said Hanson has been in contact with several defensive players via computer messages, assisting then with preparations for early-season games.
