New footage shows Hunt getting into physical altercation with 19-year old woman.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was involved in a physical altercation with a 19-year old woman earlier this year, and today the surveillance footage has surfaced.
According to TMZ Sports, the incident took place outside of Hunt's hotel room at The Metropolitan in Cleveland on February 10. The woman reportedly told police that Hunt had kicked her out of his room after she refused to hook up with one of the other men in his group. Hunt's friends told police that the woman went off when she was asked to leave and called Kareem the n-word.
As shown in the video embedded below, Hunt pushed the woman in the lobby and later kicked her while she was on the ground.
According to TMZ, police were called to the scene but no arrests were made because officers say they were unable to determine if a crime had been committed at the time. As of this time the Chiefs nor the NFL have commented on the video, though we expect that to change once the footage starts circulating.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hunt addressed reports the February incident back in August, and said he had "learned from it" and was focused on football. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt also addressed the player's character at that time.
"Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year," Clark Hunt said. "I'm sure he learned some lessons this offseason and hopefully won't be in those kind of situations in the future."
Hunt, 23, already has 14 touchdowns this season - seven rushing and seven receiving. The Chiefs, 9-2, are sitting atop the AFC heading into Sunday's Week 13 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.
