The Kansas City Chiefs have re­leased run­ning back Ka­reem Hunt af­ter a video sur­faced show­ing the NFL’s reign­ing rush­ing cham­pion knock­ing over and kick­ing a woman in a Cleve­land ho­tel hall­way in Fe­bru­ary. The team said Hunt had lied to them about the in­ci­dent, say­ing: “The video to­day con­firms that fact. We are re­leas­ing Ka­reem im­me­di­ately.” They added: “Ear­lier this year, we were made aware of an in­ci­dent in­volv­ing Ka­reem Hunt. At that time, the Na­tional Foot­ball League and law en­force­ment ini­ti­ated in­ves­ti­ga­tions. As part of our in­ter­nal dis­cus­sions with Ka­reem, sev­eral mem­bers of our man­age­ment team spoke di­rectly to him. Ka­reem was not truth­ful in those dis­cus­sions.”
