Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has played all season despite allegations that he assaulted a woman in a Cleveland hotel room in February. The incident did not receive much attention, and Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt said he did not think Hunt would be suspended.
But on Friday, video of the incident was released by TMZ, making many wonder exactly what the Chiefs and the National Football League knew and why Hunt wasn’t punished in the first place. According to TMZ, this occurred on Feb. 10 outside a hotel room at The Metropolitan after 3 a.m. Hunt and a 19-year-old woman were apparently arguing, and at one point, an outburst from Hunt sparks an incident where he slams her to the ground.
The video is graphic, but TMZ released it in full on Friday afternoon. You can watch it below, but viewer discretion is advised.
In the video, Hunt confronts a woman and pushes a friend and her. A fight ensues, and he pushes both the woman and another friend to the ground. Hunt is also seen kicking the woman, which, as many have pointed out, is not something that was included in the police report.
According to TMZ, the video was included in evidence in the criminal case that resulted from the initial police reports.
