The ESPN report features both Cable's first wife and his recent ex-girlfriend saying Cable exhibited a pattern of abusive behavior, including punching them.
ESPN also reports that Cable's second wife, Glenda Cable, said in their divorce proceedings that he was physically abusive. Glenda, however, declined to be interviewed by ESPN and recanted her claims of physical abuse in a statement issued through her attorney.
Sandy Cable says she's speaking out now because she's concerned that her ex-husband will hurt someone even worse than he hurt her. Sandy Cable noted that Tom Cable was accused by ex-Raiders assistant Randy Hanson of breaking his jaw, and Sandy -- who is now a police officer -- said Cable will continue to physically assault the people he has power over.
"He's going to hurt somebody," Cable's ex-wife said. "More so than what he's done to Randy Hanson, more than what he's done to me, more than what he's done to anybody else."
UPDATE: Tom Cable released a statement to ESPN saying he has hit a woman "on only one occasion in my life" and adding, "More than 20 years ago, during my first marriage, I became aware that my wife Sandy had committed adultery. I became very angry and slapped her with an open hand. What I did was wrong and I have regretted and felt sorrow about that moment ever since."
