Back in February, Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was accused of assaulting a 19-year-old woman in a hotel in Ohio. Hunt as never arrested or charged, and as a result, he was not suspended by his team or the league.
Friday, TMZ got a hold of a surveillance video of the incident, and it shows an ugly scene. In the clip, a man, who TMZ claims is Hunt, is seen pushing, attacking and kicking a woman. He needs to be held back repeatedly by others during the melee.
Here’s more, via TMZ:
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.
According to TMZ, one of Hunt’s friends told the cops that the woman called Hunt the n-word.
It’s unclear if the Chiefs – or the NFL – have seem the video. It’s a safe bet that once they do, some kind of punishment will be coming down the pipeline.
Hunt is having another stellar season – rushing for 824 yards and seven touchdowns for the 9-2 Chiefs. It’ll be interesting to see what both the franchise and the league do about the video.
