Former Cal Poly coach charged with two felonies
August 22, 2012
A former Cal Poly assistant coach who was arrested for allegedly attacking another man with a beer bottle at Harry’s Nightclub & Beach Bar in Pismo Beach was formally charged with two felonies on Tuesday.
Randy Allan Hanson, 44, is slated to be arraigned in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court on Sept. 5 for felony assault with a deadly weapon and felony battery with serious bodily injury.
On Aug. 4, Hanson arrived at the beach bar with a group of people just days before the Mustangs’ preseason training camp was scheduled to begin. Following the alleged assault, medics treated Hanson’s alleged victim at the scene and sent him home.
On Aug. 6, Cal Poly Athletic Director Don Oberhelman suspended Hanson indefinitely. Hanson, whose resume includes assistant coaching for three different NFL teams, resigned from his assistant coach position last week after only four months on the job.
While Hanson was an assistant with the Raiders in 2009, he said Raiders head coach Tom Cable threw him from a chair in a heated argument fracturing his jaw and ruining his relationship with the Raiders franchise. Hanson later sued Cable, but dropped the case because of a lack of evidence.
