The Kansas City Chiefs have released running back Kareem Hunt after a video surfaced that appears to show Hunt attacking a woman in a hotel.
In a statement from the official handle of Chiefs on Twitter.
“Earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving running back Kareem hunt. At that time the national football league and law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue. As part of four internal discussions with kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. The video released today confirms that fact
We are releasing Kareem immediately! ”
TMZ Sports has obtained video of Kansas City Chiefs star running back Kareem Hunt shoving, bull-rushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel back in February.
Kareem has not missed a single game this season despite the incident happening MONTHS before the 2018 NFL season kicked off … and team CEO Clark Hunt publicly stated in August he doubted Hunt would be suspended.
In the video, Hunt is seen arguing with a 19-year-old woman outside of his room at The Metropolitan at the 9 at 3:22 AM on February 10, 2018.
Hunt turns a corner and confronts the woman, shoving her hard. The woman strikes him back in the face … and that’s when Hunt goes berserk.
As friends try to hold him back, the 2017 Pro Bowler — who led the league in rushing yards — explodes and knocks one of his friends into the woman … who both go flying into a wall.
Both Kareem’s male friend and the woman appear dazed — but Kareem makes his way over to the female and kicks her while she’s crouching on the ground … knocking her over.
Police were called to the scene but no arrests were made. According to police reports, obtained by TMZ Sports, surveillance video from the hotel was obtained by law enforcement. We’re told that video is part of the evidence that was submitted to prosecutors.
You will recall that the Incident involving Kareem Hunt and the woman was previously reported by multiple outlets since feburary. Today’s news is the release of the video, which shows what happened during the incident. TMZ also released body-cam footage when police spoke with Hunt, the woman and witnesses.
