Cable decision hours away

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

Napa County district attorney Gary Lieberstein just announced on a phone message that he will have a filing decision Thursday on the assault case involving Oakland coach Tom Cable.

Lieberstein said the announcement will be made between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET. Oakland defensive assistant Randy Hanson maintains Cable assaulted him and he suffered a broken jaw in the Aug. 5 incident at the team’s training camp facility. Cable has denied he assaulted Hanson.

Cable could face felony charges.

UPDATE: The DA's office is indicating the annoucement will be closer to 6:30 p.m. ET.
