and now this:
KC Chiefs Kareem Hunt in February 2018 Video Attacking Woman

Kareem Hunt's status with the Kansas City Chiefs was in limbo Friday night after video surfaced of the reigning NFL rushing champion striking a woman during an incident at a Cleveland hotel...Police were called to the scene during the Feb. 10 incident, but no charges were filed...though two police reports were created. Hunt is listed as the suspect in one of them and a woman, Abigail Ottinger, is the suspect in the other one...

The video, published by TMZ, shows Hunt knocking over and kicking a woman in the hotel hallway...(and) lunging toward a woman and several others...(T)he second-year pro (was) restrained several times...Hunt later shoves an individual and knocks down a woman, whom he then kicks on the ground.

The Chiefs and the NFL have been aware of Hunt's incident since it occurred...Hunt was at the Chiefs' facility earlier Friday in preparation for Sunday's trip to Oakland, but was excused and sent home...Hunt could be placed on the NFL's Commissioner Exempt List, which...means the player is paid and does not count against the club's 53-man roster, (b)ut he can't practice or play until he is removed from the list.

When asked about the offseason incidents during training camp, Hunt replied: ''I've learned from it and just focus on football.''






Maybe Hunt should have focused on outbidding TMZ for the video...

1. The accuser? They should change that to victim

2. As obvious as it may be

It's up to the courts to determine who's a victim. The media actually has a responsibility to use words like accuser and "alleged" no matter how damning the evidence may be, at least until a court issues a finding of guilt.

5. So the NFL & Chiefs did an investigation but were fine w/ everything until the media got this video.

This "well, shucks, we got snookered" act by employers who try to avoid ditching valuable employees caught doing bad things is wearing thin. If you just don't care, say so and stop pretending otherwise.

6. Well, if you're suggesting the NFL's "investigation" was a sham

it sounds like you're probably right!

4. Cue the guy with the Dragnet Hammer...oh, wait...

Hunt Cut by the Chiefs: They Say He Lied

TMZ: The Chiefs have cut Kareem Hunt...The team says when the NFL and Cleveland PD launched their investigations, the team called in Hunt and "...spoke directly (with) him. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions: The video released today confirms that fact."

...(T)he league made multiple attempts to obtain the video, but was turned away. We're told the league contacted the hotel, and was told it is corporate policy to only turn surveillance video over to law enforcement. We contacted the (hotel) and COO Tony Quintal says, "We realize that this is an ongoing investigation and cannot share any additional information at this time."

We're told the NFL also contacted Cleveland PD attempting to get the video, but was also denied. The source says the league's investigation included reaching out to the alleged victim, who did not respond.

Well, that ties everything up into a neat little package, except for one thing: If only the cops could get the video from the hotel, and the team couldn't get it from the cops, how did TMZ get it?
