Kareem Hunt isn't Ray Rice or Joe Mixon

Kareem Hunt isn't Ray Rice or Joe Mixon

The Kansas City Chiefs released Kareem Hunt after video was released that appeared to show him kicking a woman.

"The NFL's investigation, which began immediately following the incident in February, will include a review of the new information that was made public today", the NFL said in a statement. Clearly, the TMZ video released Friday proves otherwise. He's since been released by the Kansas City Chiefs and his career is in doubt.

According to NFL.com, the league is investigating an allegation that Hunt punched a man in the face while visiting an OH resort in June. 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. I am ashamed of myself and I just want to do whatever it takes to earn people's trust back and show them that I'm really a good guy.

When Cleveland police arrived, they got two versions of what allegedly happened.

"There was definitely some things that were said and did that I did not like, and that's not an excuse", Hunt said.

Hunt apologized on ESPN for his actions and said he'd take full responsibility for what comes of the incident.

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

Several more men and another woman emerged from the hotel room and attempted to hold back Hunt, who re-emerged from the doorway to knock one of the men into the woman, both of whom tumbled to the carpeted hallway floor. 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. Hunt might have been the one physically on camera, but the spotlight from the coverage falls on the player, the team and the entire league at this point.

Hunt said he'd just purchased an apartment in the Cleveland hotel and had several friends over, and that he did not know the woman involved in the assault. I'm not the type of person to ever even think about putting my hands on anyone.

The Chiefs said the footage proved that Hunt, who helped propel the team to first place in the AFC with a 9-2 record, had been "untruthful" with investigators.

Of course, that was before the hotel security video surfaced. That was the underlined when the Washington Redskins signed linebacker Reuben Foster, who had been cut last week after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

"Everything is happening fast right now and I just want everybody to forgive me", Hunt said. I regret, I just regret my decision that I made that night. "And I know that's where I masked a lot of my problems".
