STILL PHOTO OF HUNT WITH TEAMMATE MITCHELL SCHWARTZ DURING NFL GAME AGAINST JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS STORY: The Kansas City Chiefs released Kareem Hunt late Friday (November 30) after video released by TMZ showed the running back shoving and kicking a woman during an offseason hotel disturbance in Cleveland.
The Chiefs statement said that the video shows that Hunt was not truthful with the organization when they conducted an investigation into the incident earlier this year.
The incident occurred at The Metropolitan at 3:22 a.m.
10, 2018, and involved then-19-year-old Abigail Ottinger from Berea, Ohio.
In the video, Hunt appears to come around a corner outside his rented room to confront Ottinger with a hard shove.
The woman hits him in the face and Hunt becomes enraged.
Hunt's entourage comes to help and attempts to hold him back.
At one point, Hunt sends one of his friends and the woman flying into a wall.
Ottinger was on the ground appearing dazed and started to get up.
Hunt saw her and delivered a kick to knock her back on the ground.
According to TMZ, law enforcement obtained the video from the hotel.
Prosecutors reviewed the footage and decided not to file charges.
Ottinger, who reportedly attends Kent State, told police that the incident started because she refused to have sex with a member of Hunt's entourage.
Members of the entourage told police Ottinger called Hunt the N-word and physically hit a female member of the entourage.
Hunt was also involved in an offseason incident in which he was accused of punching a man.
No charges were filed in that case either and there was no discipline from the NFL for either incident.
