TMZ published a video depicting Hunt and the woman exchanging words in a hallway before being separated on numerous instances.
The NFL and the Chiefs said they could not obtain the video because the police and hotel would not cooperate. And uh, my mother raised me right. "They pretty much said we love you, everybody cares about you, and just we have to let you go". During the interview, Rice said he'd be willing to help Hunt figure things out.
"Kareem being a friend of mine, I think the impact is just that - Kareem as a person, " wide receiver Chris Conley said. He later pushes one of the men, knocking down a woman that Hunt admitted he did not know, and eventually kicks her while she lays on the ground.
"The Chiefs did what was right", Hunt told ESPN. "The Chiefs are right", Hunt told Salters. That's just how I look at it. "My actions caused this and I really wish I could apologize to them and let them know there's no hard feelings". The NFL then contacted Cleveland police, but the department said Saturday it did not pursue the video because it was not a felony-level case.
Video surfaces from Kareem Hunt's February incident
The woman claimed that she was kicked out of Hunt's hotel room after refusing to have sex with one of Hunt's friends. The man in the video can be seen going on a rampage and repeatedly shoving, rushing, and kicking the woman.
The NFL has placed Hunt on league Commissioner Roger Goodell's exempt list, meaning he is not allowed to play or attend any NFL games.
"The NFL's ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident", the statement read. An independent investigation - which was led by Robert Mueller, now the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election - determined that there was no evidence the NFL had seen the Ray Rice video but that the league should have investigated more thoroughly. "It will include a review of the new information that was made public on Friday - which was not available to the National Football League previously - as well as further conversations with all parties involved in the incident".
Days later, the linebacker was claimed by the Washington Redskins, although he, too, will not be activated until a league investigation is concluded.
Many compare the video footage to that of former Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was also captured on video punching his then-fiancée in an elevator.
