TMZ video shows Chiefs RB Hunt shoving, kicking woman


Video released Friday by TMZ shows Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt shoving and kicking a woman during an offseason hotel disturbance in Cleveland.

The incident occurred at The Metropolitan at 3:22 a.m. on Feb. 10, 2018, and involved 19-year-old Abigail Ottinger from Berea, Ohio.

Hunt is seen on the video coming around a corner outside his rented room and confronts the woman 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.

The woman 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.

The Chiefs haven't commented on the video released by TMZ, but owner Clark Hunt defended the running back's character in August.

"Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year," Clark Hunt told reporters. "I'm sure he learned some lessons this offseason and hopefully won't be in those kind of situations in the future."

Hunt, 23, is from the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby and spends a significant part of his offseason in the area. He played college football at Toledo.

Hunt rushed for 1,327 yards as a rookie with the Chiefs last season. He has 824 yards through 11 games this season.
