Kareem Hunt admits to lying to Chiefs about hotel assault

Kareem Hunt cut by Kansas City Chiefs after alleged assault video on woman emerges

The NFL said in a statement Friday it began investigating "immediately" after the incident in February. Rice told NFL.com that he would've urged Hunt to consider whether it was "worth risking it all for a split-second decision - for something you know you can get out of", but acknowledged that Hunt might not have been "in his right mind" when he lashed out.

TMZ thinks the Prosecutor's lack of participation might be holding back the case, because, in instances like this where the police are noncompliant, the PO has the right to charge a suspect, even without a "victim's testimony". At one point, Hunt pushed the man so hard that he crashed into the woman and they both careened into a wall.

Hunt was released Friday following the release of the TMZ video after the team determined that Hunt was "not truthful" in his discussions with the Chiefs about what occurred. Hunt also kicks the woman in the leg. "I'm going to take the time to better myself, learn from this, get some help if needed, talk to people and really just take this really serious".

"I realized what I did once I saw the video, and it was really tough to watch", he said.

Hunt, who is in his second year in the league, remains on a rookie contract so will be a very attractive (and relatively inexpensive) commodity for a number of NFL teams who may not be turned off the inevitable negative PR implications of signing the undoubtedly talented player. It showed Hunt knocking a woman to the floor, then kicking her.

"That's not an excuse", he said.

Hunt, who was released by the Chiefs after being placed on the NFL's Commissioner Exempt List on Friday, was seen on the video shoving and kicking a 19-year-old woman in the early hours of February 10.

Kate Middleton Makes a Clear Statement About Meghan Markle Amidst Feud Drama
The Sun reported the Queen warned Prince Harry over Meghan Markle's behaviour and attitude before their wedding. "They're doing well, thank you", she said to the wellwisher who asked about her kids.


"Honestly, I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions", Hunt said.

In the grainy, graphic video, Hunt is seen getting into an argument with a woman and several men step in to hold him back.

During a live interview with ESPN on Sunday, the NFL's reigning rushing champion also said that league officials never spoke to him about the incident while conducting their own investigation. "I hope to move on from this", he said. I regret the entire thing. I'll do whatever I can to help win.

From there, however, Hunt is only one of several figures whose behavior is suspect, to say the least, as more information emerges about the physical altercation involving the star running back.

Rice was originally suspended for two games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who later was heavily criticized for such a light penalty after the video was released. I know my upbringing wasn't ideal.

But Foster appears to have found a new home: Washington's National Football League team claimed him, with one its executives calling the allegations against him "small potatoes". "I made a bad decision at that time".
