NFL Star Kareem Hunt Cut From Chiefs After Violent Video Surfaced

The reason there's weren't any charges filed in February is because there were two police reports filed from the incident with one listing Hunt as a suspect and another that listed the woman as the suspect.

How will he go forward from this incident? Nearly immediately, TMZ reported, the Chiefs sent Hunt home early from a practice.

Rice and Mixon could have killed the women in their incidents. But he did have a message for her on air on Sunday.

"Peer-to-peer, I would definitely try to help him figure out, 'How can we start dealing with the underlying problems in your life?' " said Rice, who also expressed remorse for domestic-violence victims. He should have walked away, but what that video showed was a chaotic scene, but no punches were thrown or close to being thrown. "I know right from wrong and I'm a person that always wants to make everyone happy". "I'm really disappointed in myself".

Sure, Hunt apologized but his explanation and remorse seemed tone-deaf at times. He lied to the Chiefs about the incident, and did not receive discipline.

Hunt was immediately released from the Chiefs organization when the video was released online by TMZ on November 30, bringing a premature end to a season in which the former Toledo Rocket had plundered an impressive seven touchdowns in 11 games.

The league did reach out to the woman and her friend on multiple occasions but they did not respond, officials said.

The Chiefs announced Friday evening that the team is releasing Hunt immediately.


"I realized what I did once I saw the video, and it was really tough to watch", he said. Everybody cares about you. "You need to just live one day at a time".

The Chiefs said the footage proved that Hunt, who helped propel the team to first place in the AFC with a 9-2 record, had been "untruthful" with investigators.

"The Chiefs are right. I'm wiling to take any responsibility of any actions that come from this point on".

According to NFL.com, the league is investigating an allegation that Hunt punched a man in the face while visiting an OH resort in June. Hunt is current on the commissioner's exempt list, which means he can not report to a team facility. Due to his release from the Chiefs roster he is now listed on the league waivers and if, as expected, he goes unclaimed by a team by the deadline on Monday he will then become an unrestricted free agent. If he goes unclaimed, then Hunt will become a free agent. He can not serve his suspension until claimed by a team. "I made a bad decision at that time and I just hope that people forgive me".

When asked whether the National Football League spoke directly to Hunt about it, he replied: "No, they have not".

"But we have a strong support system, both with the coaching staff and also with our player development that works with young guys and talks to them about the situations that they want to be in", the chairman said.

"It's no excuse for me to act that way". That person in that video did not deserve that. I didn't mean to hurt anybody or anything like that.
