Two Cal players fight, one sent to hospital

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sport

Not a headline you ever want to read, anywhere, but it's true - according to university police, walk-on running back Fabiano Hale and another unnamed player were involved in an altercation on Friday.

UPDATE:

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.

Discuss, facepalm, complain, worry, and [insert verb of choice] below.
