Martin to talk again

Mon., Nov. 25, 2013

Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin will likely be interviewed a second time by NFL special investigator Ted Wells about the team’s bullying scandal, a person familiar with the situation said Sunday.

The second interview will likely be in New York City or California the first week in December, the person told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details about the investigation are confidential.

Martin alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Richie Incognito, who has been suspended. Martin was interviewed for nearly seven hours by Wells on Nov. 15 in New York.

Wells spent the past week interviewing Dolphins players, coaches and staff in South Florida, and he also met with Incognito. Wells said his work would continue over the next few weeks on the case, which inspired a national debate about workplace bullying.

Two fans hurt in fall at Raiders’ stadium

Authorities say a woman jumped from the third level deck of the Oakland Raiders’ home stadium, injuring herself and a man who tried to catch her.

Stadium officials said the woman plunged about 45 feet after Sunday’s game at Coliseum.

Alameda County Sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson told KTVU-TV that the woman went to an area that is closed off to the public and leaped off the edge as people below urged her not to jump.

Nelson said the unidentified woman was taken to the hospital in “very critical” condition, and the man was in stable condition.
