Kareem Hunt expected to go on NFL Exempt list

Posted December 01, 2018

Video has surfaced of Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt that is believed to be related to an alleged altercation dating back to February with a woman in Cleveland at The Metropolitan at the 9, Hunt's hotel apartment in downtown Cleveland.

The clip, which came from an OH hotel hallway camera, was published by TMZ on Friday afternoon.

On Nov. 30, the Chiefs excused Hunt from practice after the video was released, ESPN reported. The move likely means Hunt will not play in Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Hunt's charge caused both the man and the woman to fall to the ground.

Hunt is seen in the video arguing with a woman, shoving her and later kicking her as she crouched down.

The woman, Abigail Ottinger, a 19-year-old Kent State student, claimed that she spent a night on a party bus going to Cleveland bars with a group of Hunt's friends, according to a police report obtained by Cleveland.com in February.

Neither the team nor the National Football League took no action against Hunt after the incident.

TMZ says the woman told officers the incident started when Hunt kicked her out of his room because he wouldn't "hook up" with one of his friends. That's when Hunt came outside and "shoved and pushed" her in an attempt to get her to leave. "Just be in the right place at the right time". The Chiefs have yet to make any comments publicly on the matter, but some statement from the team (and perhaps action) should also be expected. I'm sure he learned some lessons this offseason and hopefully won't be in those kinds of situations in the future.
