October 22, 2009 | 12:40 pm

Tom Napa County District Atty. Gary Lieberstein will announce later today whether he will file charges against Oakland Raiders Coach Tom Cable for allegedly attacking one of his assistant coaches.

Lieberstein told the Associated Press he will announce his decision sometime after 2 p.m. PDT.

Cable is accused of assaulting Randy Hanson during a team meeting on Aug. 5. Hanson suffered a broken jaw in the incident.

Hanson has cooperated with investigators after initially choosing not to tell the police about how he broke his jaw.
