According to source, the player who hit Hale, another freshman, was still allowed to suit up for Saturday's game. Didn't play, but dressed— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) November 5, 2013
All of that was from a close family friend, who also told Fabiano Hale's stepdad would be calling me shortly— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) November 5, 2013
According to family friend, Hale's parents were upset it took so long for them to be contacted & no one from Cal was w/ Hale at the hospital— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) November 5, 2013
..Hale was taken to the hospital and for two hours no one contacted his parents. Finally a teammate's family called his parents & they came— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) November 5, 2013
..Players were told to deal with Hale on their own but "leave it in the locker room." Hale was later seen in the locker room and blindsided— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) November 5, 2013
A family friend of Fabiano Hale told me he slept in and missed the Friday workout. Players had to do extra work because of his absence..— Hunter Hewitt (@HunterHewitt) November 5, 2013
I don't even know what to say, so I'll just let the Chronicle say the rest:
Two Cal football players were involved in a locker room altercation Friday that resulted in one being taken to a hospital, UC Berkeley police said Monday.
Freshman Fabiano Hale, 18, was injured during a fight at the Simpson Center adjacent to Memorial Stadium and suffered unspecified injuries. He was initially taken to the Tang Center, the university clinic, before being moved to Alta Bates Medical Center, said university police Lt. Marc DeCoulode.
DeCoulode declined to name the second player involved and was unclear on the circumstances leading up to the incident.
"It was one-on-one," DeCoulode said. He added, "We know who the suspect is."
Police would not say whether they had already interviewed the other player involved and declined to say whether charges might be filed.
It was not likely to be anyone on the main roster, though, as the article adds this last part:
The incident happened after a workout involving players who don't travel with the team. Hale, a running back, graduated from Soquel (Santa Cruz County) High.
Perhaps predictably, Sonny Dykes did not have comment on Monday.
