If the most recent batch of Raiders off-field violence allegations make you queasy, these new off-field violence allegations will surely lift your spirits.
Jeremy Brigham, a Raider tight end from 1998 to 2001, is being investigated by Pleasanton police for allegedly beating up another parent in a coaching dispute over a pee wee football game. Brigham had a coaching argument with another parent in a 10- and 11-year-old boys football league, and threw the other parent over a fence before unloading punches onto the back of his head.
Okay, you can go ahead and make your steroids joke now.
The San Francisco Chronicle's Matier & Ross have the story, noting that the fight stemmed from Brigham's suspicion that the other parent was secretly feeding another team his game plans in the Pleasanton Junior Football League. The parent whom Brigham allegedly beat up and left in a neck brace also happens to be a 13-year Alameda County supervisor.
So Jeremy Brigham can expect a few parking tickets and property tax audits in his future.
