They also claimed that the woman called him racial slurs which provoked retaliation. The Redskins made a similar move — and accepted the public backlash — when they signed linebacker Reuben Foster, who had been cut by the 49ers after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. At the time of the incident, the woman told police the whole thing started because Kareem kicked her out of his room after she refused to hook up with one of the men in Kareem's entourage. Still, cops and no charges were filed because officers say they were unable to determine if a crime had been committed. Getty In the grainy, graphic video, Hunt is seen getting into an argument with a woman and several men step in to hold him back.
The league made multiple attempts to obtain it. Police were called to the scene, but no arrests were made or charges filed. At one point, Hunt appeared to knock two people over with a shove, including the woman he initially shoved. He later pushes one of the men, knocking down a woman that Hunt admitted he did not know, and eventually kicks her while she lays on the ground. Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year. The woman subsequently swatted at Hunt's face.
By According to one of the police reports, Ottinger and a friend told police they were Kent State students and were traveling to Cleveland bars with Hunt and his friends on a party bus. It appears to be a classic case of he said — she said. But by signing him, they retain his rights should he make it back to the field. We are releasing Kareem immediately. 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. At the end of the video, Hunt kicked the woman as she was crouched on the ground.
I deeply regret what I did. After she hits him in the face, Hunt pushes another man into the woman and then kicks her while she is almost on the ground. Everyone else -- much further from the minimum standard. Hunt remains on the exempt list, which means a team could sign him but he would be unable to play or attend games until the league's investigation is complete. I made a poor decision and I'm willing to take full responsibility. Both parties involved filed reports with the police and no charges were brought against either party. I honestly wanted her just to leave.
Now, the newest player to come under fire for not being able to keep his hands to himself is Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt. I'm extremely embarrassed because of that video. The video released today confirms that fact. A has surfaced from an incident involving Kareem Hunt that occurred last February. The team announced the move Friday night. The video released today confirms that fact.
As in the case with the hotel incident, no charges were filed in that case. Hunt and the woman trade words in a hallway and are separated by several people on multiple occasions, the video shows. He reports Hunt will likely be placed on the commissioner's exempt list -- which means he will probably not play this Sunday when the Chiefs take on the Raiders in Oakland. I made a bad decision at that time and I just hope that people forgive me. Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year. That remains the largest takeaway here. Hunt also kicks the woman in the leg.
The Associated Press contributed to this report. I hope to move on from this. Not that beating women is bad, which the league and its teams take seriously only when forced to do so. I made a bad choice. I hope to move on from this. We are releasing Kareem immediately. In the footage, posted below, Hunt can be seen arguing with the Kent State college student, then shoving her.
If I get another shot, the team won't regret it. My mother raised me right. I know right from wrong and I'm a person that always wants to make everyone happy. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. Of course folks on Twitter had words about the video: This Kareem Hunt story is a lot to say the least. Rather, the real transgression Hunt committed was embarrassing the company by doing his sordid business on video. She said that when she went after him, someone grabbed her and she fell to the floor.
