The man who suffered a broken jaw during an altercation with former Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable as a member of the coaching staff in 2009 is now heading to jail for an incident of his own.
According to Cynthia Lambert of the San Luis Obispo Tribune, former Raiders assistant Randy Hanson was found guilty of felony battery and misdemeanor assault for hitting a man in the face with a beer bottle last August.
Hanson was working as an assistant coach at Cal Poly University at the time of the crime and faces up to four years in jail. Hanson’s attorney plans on trying to get the felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor at Hanson’s sentencing hearing on June 10.
Hanson was awoken by 52-year old James Kelsey in the back of a limo outside of Harry’s Night Club and Beach Bar in Pismo Beach, Calif. Upon being disturbed, Hanson cracked Kelsey with a bottle. Kelsey suffered a broken nose and a concussion. Hanson claimed it was in self-defense.
Hanson sued the Raiders and Cable for the incident that left him injured and eventually no longer employed by the team. Cable wasn’t charged for the altercation.
