NFL Star Kareem Hunt Cut From Chiefs After Violent Video Surfaced

Monday, 03 Dec, 2018

The team issued a statement shortly after the National Football League had placed Hunt on its Commissioner Exemption List that said the running back lied when asked about the incident by team officials.

"That perception is for me to change", Lanier said.

In another interview with NBC Washington shortly before taking over as NFL security chief, Lanier said she believed the league was committed to doing a better job on these cases.

TMZ thinks the Prosecutor's lack of participation might be holding back the case, because, in instances like this where the police are noncompliant, the PO has the right to charge a suspect, even without a "victim's testimony".

"Honestly, I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions and, you know, it's been a tough time for me and I'm extremely embarrassed because of that video", Hunt said to open the interview with Salters.

But after the Chiefs' first game without Hunt, Mahomes voiced more clearly than any of his teammates or coach Andy Reid the reason Hunt needed to go. The person spoke on condition of anonymity pending a formal statement from the team. Teams continue to draft players who have a history of domestic violence - sometimes even players who have been seen on camera committing violence similar to Hunt and Rice. Belcher was later found to have suffered from CTE.

The former Chiefs running back will speak on ESPN later in the morning.

The NFL placed Hunt on the commissioner's exempt list earlier Friday night. The three-time Pro Bowl running back never returned to the NFL. It showed Hunt knocking a woman to the floor, then kicking her. It was to little avail as Hunt pushed the woman several times, along with the man who was trying to restrain him.

"You can't really explain it", Hunt said of kicking the woman while she was on the ground. Again, no official charges were filed and Hunt seemed to skate through the offseason.

ESPN's Sam Ponder, to her credit (and ESPN's, for actually including a woman in this discussion) pointed out that he was, in fact, That Person.

Hunt also was involved in a June incident, according to TMZ, in which he allegedly punched a man at an OH resort.

"I deeply regret what I did". He ranks fifth so far this year with 824 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games this season.

Lanier was supposed to give the league something it sorely lacked: A woman with enough authority to make sure the frat boys were stopped in their tracks.

"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". "Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year".
