Cal Bears Running Back Fabiano Hale Injured In Fight With Teammate

cal_logoCal Bears freshman running back Fabiano Hale was taken to Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley on Friday after he was injured during a locker room altercation with a teammate.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Hale suffered unspecified injuries and was taken to the university clinic before being moved to the hospital. The Chronicle cited UC Berkeley Police Lt. Marc DeCoulode for the information.

Police declined to identify the second player involved in the fight, but made it clear there were only two players involved.

“It was one-on-one,” DeCoulode said. “We know who the suspect is.”

It’s an ugly incident in the midst of an ugly season for the Golden Bears, who are 1-8 overall and 0-6 in Pac-12 play heading into Saturday’s final home game of the season against Southern California.

In their first season under coach Sonny Dykes, Cal has lost 13 straight games against Football Bowl Subdivision competition, 11 in a row in conference play and seven straight overall.

Dykes had no comment on Monday about the incident, which happened following a workout involving players who do not travel with the team.

Hale is a graduate of Soquel High School in Santa Cruz County, where he rushed for 2,452 yards and 40 touchdowns as a senior in 2012.

    Cal is following legal advise from lawyers by not providing any other information about this. It was not a fight – the kid was blind side sucker punched and went to the hospital with some fairly serious injuries (severe concussion and lacerations that need stitches). The cops are treating as an assault and there will be legal ramifications.
