Kareem Hunt 'embarrassed' by video of attack on woman

Wednesday, 05 Dec, 2018

Hunt broke his silence Sunday, detailing the February incident to ESPN's Lisa Salters.

But the video, which shows Hunt shoving the woman several times and kicking her as others try to hold him back, led the National Football League to place Hunt on the "Commissioner Exempt List", preventing him from playing, practicing or attending games. The video, which has no sound, shows Ottinger appear to follow Hunt into the hallway and say something to the player, who breaks free and pushes a man into Ottinger, sending them both to the ground and her face-first into a wall.

"Kareem being a friend of mine, I think the impact is just that - Kareem as a person, " wide receiver Chris Conley said. I am not blaming anyone who was with him, but I wish someone that was with him, if he's not in his right mind ... would've said to him, 'Look at the situation. "I was raised by my mom and my grandma and they taught me right from wrong". "I made a poor decision and I'm willing to take full responsibility".

He also said that if he saw the woman in the video again he would say "I am sorry for my actions that night". Then, hours after the video came out, the Chiefs announced they were releasing Hunt.

"I'm asking for forgiveness, and definitely believe I deserve forgiveness", Hunt said.

In the ESPN interview, Hunt confirmed that he was not honest with the Chiefs about the incident. I felt like I let the Chiefs down, my family down, those players down. "The video shows that I was in the wrong".

He said he hadn't contacted Hunt since he was released. It reached out to the alleged victim and a friend of hers "on multiple occasions", but they did not respond, officials said. According to the NFL Network, Hunt is facing more than a six-game suspension; if - and it's a big "if" - another team were to sign him, he would be disciplined until well into the 2019 season.

"Those kinds of things are never easy, " Reid said, adding that he wanted to avoid "a distraction" on the team. It's tough because I feel like I let a lot of people down. The NFL delivered a swift statement on the matter claiming their investigation was, "consistent with standard investigatory practices..."

"Earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving running back Kareem Hunt", the statement read.
