Former Raider Accused of Attacking County Supervisor
Former Oakland Raider player Jeremy Brigham is under investigation by police over a pee-wee football fight that left Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty wearing a neck brace.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports, the scuffle erupted when accusations that Haggerty - whom ex-NFL tight end had just fired as the assistant coach of his Pleasanton squad of 10- and 11-year-old boys - had leaked plays to an opposing team.
Haggerty has been a county supervisor since 1996. Brigham played with the Raiders from 1998-2002. The two were on the coaching staff of the Cowboys in the Pleasanton Junior Football League.
Supervisor Scott Haggerty accused former Raiders tight end Jeremy Brigham of hitting him on the back of the head and trying to drag him over a 4-foot-high fence.
The incident reportedly took place at the Foothill High School football field when Haggerty was picking up his son from practice.
Haggerty said an opposing coach told Brigham that Haggerty had shared all of the Cowboys' plays with him. He says it was a joke, which seems likely, considering that the Cowboys had just beat the other coach's team by 38-0.
Police Sgt. Jim Knox confirmed that his department is investigating the incident and said a report is due in the next couple of weeks.
This situation sounds like a flag should have been thrown on the play.
