This comes days after FanHouse, National Football Post and Yahoo! Sports revealed that Cable attacked Hanson in what has been described as a blindsided assault during a coaches' meeting at the Raiders' camp headquarters at the Napa Valley Marriott.
According to multiple sources, Hanson sustained a fractured jaw and other serious facial injuries in the altercation and has sought hospital treatment as recently as Wednesday evening.
Napa police issued a news release Friday on their Web site, which acknowledges "new information has come to light which has resulted in the investigation to be re-opened," but does not name a victim or an attacker. The release is below:
