  • Cleveland PD not Kansas City Chiefs in the wrong over Kareem Hunt

Former Kansas City Chiefs star Kareem Hunt likely lost out on a future contract worth tens of millions of dollars after the publication of surveillance footage that showed the running back attacking a woman at a Cleveland hotel last February.

During a live interview with ESPN on Sunday, the NFL's reigning rushing champion also said that league officials never spoke to him about the incident while conducting their own investigation.

TMZ published a video depicting Hunt and the woman exchanging words in a hallway before being separated on numerous instances.

A third-round draft pick out of Toledo, Hunt wound up leading the National Football League in rushing as a rookie with 1,327 yards. My mother raised me right.

"The Chiefs Kingdom, we're gonna come together, Justin Alvarez, River Bluff Brewery, said".

"Days after the incident, sources told us Hunt punched the resort guest in the face after he had been partying all weekend long at the pool and DJ booth".

"I'm definitely not that type of person".

Law enforcement sources say the woman never took her case to the city Prosecutor's Office and hasn't been cooperative with the prosecutor - which might be why no charges have been filed against Hunt.

When the incident first occurred, several members of the Chief's management team interviewed Hunt about the allegations. "I don't want to get anything to distract from how tough a place this is to play [and] my locker room leadership overcoming the situation we had there, which can be a distraction, and [they] stepped up today in a place that we haven't always come out with this kind of result". "If I could (contact her), I want to tell her right now that I am sorry for my actions that night". The video showed Hunt shoving a woman and kicking her while she was hunched over on the ground. I felt like I let the Chiefs down, my family down, those players down. "And I know that's where I masked a lot of my problems". The team then talked to the NFL about it and were given assurances the league would look into it.

"The NFL's ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident", the statement read. The NFL delivered a swift statement on the matter claiming their investigation was, "consistent with standard investigatory practices..."

Kansas City released the running back after video surfaced of an altercation with a female.
