Former Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt involved in January nightclub incident

Former Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt involved in January nightclub incident”

The future of running back Kareem Hunt's National Football League career became increasingly uncertain Monday after he went unclaimed on waivers by the NFL's 31 other teams following his release by the Kansas City Chiefs.

This video is barely a month before the attack involving Hunt at a downtown Cleveland hotel. Hunt allegedly got into a verbal altercation with another resort guest and punched him in the face. Hunt now is on the commissioner's exempt list and can not play even if another team signs him.

Now there's a third incident Kareem Hunt will have to explain to prospective teams and perhaps the NFL.

Atkinson was never arrested or charged, police say.

It looks like the Kansas City Chiefs roster isn't the only entity that disgraced running back Kareem Hunt has been removed from in the past week. He said he went to the hospital emergency room about 20 hours later with a broken rib, broken nose and multiple bruises and contusions. The man claims he confronted Atkinson, but that he was then punched in the shoulder.

According the photographer, Shelley Lipton, the Steelers fan told the man and woman in front of him, Chargers fans, to sit down but they told him "it was their turn" to stand and cheer.

A police spokesman said the accuser stopped cooperating after he filed the report, and that he declined to file charges. It was only the latest in a series of legal troubles for Foster, who remains on the exempt list and is facing a league suspension. Hunt, who previously denied the assault, was released Friday.

The team said Hunt lied to them about his involvement in the incident.

Of course, this update on Hunt comes with little surprise factor. It showed Hunt lunging toward a woman and several others in the hotel hallway, and the second-year pro being restrained several times before knocking two people down.

In the video you can see Hunt yelling as a security guard tries to hold him back. Again, no charges were filed and no video tape has surfaced. He reported the incident on January 11.

Members of the entourage told police Ottinger called Hunt the N-word and physically hit a female member of the entourage. "It's been a tough time for me and I'm extremely embarrassed about that video".

'I'm definitely not that type of person.

'I'm asking for forgiveness.

Hunt says he "deserves forgiveness". "I know this is what he wants, what he strives for. I made a bad choice and I'm not going to let this bring me down".

Hunt is from the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby and spends a significant part of his offseason in the area. Under the CFL constitution, the commissioner has the right to reject the contract of a player he feels brings "brings disrepute to the league or the game of football".

Hunt rushed for 1,327 yards as a rookie with the Chiefs last season. He had run for 824 yards this season, with seven touchdowns rushing and seven more receiving, in helping the Chiefs to a 9-2 start and a lead in the AFC West.
