NFL Superstar Kareem Hunt Attacks Woman In Hotel | TMZ Live


A HUGE STORY WE JUST BROKE ON “TMZ” SPORTS ABOUT AN NFL SUPERSTAR. SOME OF THIS IS GOING TO SOUND A LITTLE FAMILIAR. GOES TO GO TO SOUND LIKE RAY RICE. IT IS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO OF KANSAS CITY CHIEFS STAR KAREEM HUNT STRIKING A WOMAN DURING A DISPUTE IN A HOTEL. THIS HAPPENED BACK IN FEBRUARY, AND “TMZ” SPORTS DID THAT STORY. POLICE WERE CALLED. WE KNEW THERE WAS SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE BASEBALL. “TMZ” SPORTS JUST OBTAINED. THERE IT IS. KAREEM HUNT IS THE MAN THERE WITH A CHAIN ON. HE STRIKES THIS WOMAN. SHE COMES BACK AT HIM, AND IT GETS — HOW DO I SAY THIS? IT SEEMS LIKE HE HAS A DISREGARD FOR HER AS A HUMAN BEING. VAN: RIGHT THERE, SOMEBODY ELSE GETS PUSHED INTO HER. PROBABLY THE MOST SHOCKING THINGS HAPPENS LATER ON WHEN HE KICKS HER WHILE SHE IS ON THE GROUND. IT LOOKS PRETTY BAD FOR KAREEM HUNT RIGHT NOW. CHARLES: THE BIG QUESTION THAT “TMZ” SPORTS IS WORKING ON RIGHT NOW IS WHAT HAS THE NFL OR THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS DONE ABOUT THIS? UP TO THIS POINT, WE KNEW ABOUT THE ALLEGATIONS — VAN: SHE IS GOING TO FALL BACK DOWN HERE AND THEN YOU SEE THE KICK. THIS HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY IN A HOTEL IN CLEVELAND, OHIO. COPS RESPONDED TO THIS, BUT DIDN’T CHARGE ANYBODY WITH A CRIME. IF YOU WATCH THE FULL RAW VIDEO WHICH YOU CAN SEE ON “TMZ” SPORTS.COM, IT STARTS WITH KAREEM HUNT, WHO IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST STARS IN THE NFL. HE WAS THE RUSHERER LAST YEAR. HE IS ON THE CHIEFS, A KEY PART OF THAT TEAM. HE IS A RISING SUPERSTAR. HE WAS INVOLVED IN A SITUATION WHERE COPS INVESTIGATED. THEY SAW THIS VIDEO. YOU CAN SEE KAREEM THROWS THE FIRST CHOATE. HE SHOVES THIS WOMAN, AND THEN IT ESCALATES AT A POINT BEFORE HE KICKS HER, HE BULL RUSHES AT HER AND RUNS OVER A MALE ASSOCIATE AND THE WOMAN. THEY BOTH GO FLYING INTO THE WALL AND BOTH ARE DAZED. KAREEM HUNT IS A POWERFUL, EXPLOSIVE PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE, AND YOU CAN TELL THE PEOPLE ARE HURT. THE COPS CAME TO THE HOTEL, AND THEY INTERVIEWED KAREEM HUNT, THE WOMAN WHO WAS ATTACKED AND FRIENDS. THE WOMAN SAID THAT THIS ALL HAPPENED BECAUSE THEY KICKED HER OUT OF KAREEM’S HOTEL ROOM BECAUSE SHE WOULDN’T HOOK UP WITH A MAN IN KAREEM’S ENTOURAGE. THE FRIENDS TOLD POLICE A DIFFERENT STORY. THAT SHE STARTED ACTING CRAZY IN THE ROOM AND STARTED USING THE N-WORD. THAT IS WHY EVERYBODY GOT UPSET AND TRIED TO THROW HER OUT AND SHE WOULDN’T LEAVE. THE COPS POLICE REPORTS OBTAINED BY “TMZ” SPORTS, THEY KNEW THAT IS YOUR VEIL ANDS VIDEO WAS AVAILABLE. WE SPOKE WITH POLICE, AND THAT IS YOUR VEIL ANDS VIDEO WAS SUBMITTED INTO EVIDENCE, AND PROSECUTORS SAW THIS, BUT THEY STILL DIDN’T FEEL THIS WAS AT THE LEVEL OF A CRIME, SO HE WAS NOT CHARGED, PROSECUTORED OR ANYTHING. WHEN YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO, YOU THINK TO YOUR RECEIVE NUMBER ONE WHAT THE HELL IS THIS GUY THINKING? YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE AND PUTTING YOUR HANDS ON A 19-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WHO IS NOT, AND HE KICKS HER. THE NFL, WHERE ARE THEY IN THIS WHOLE THING? AGAIN, THIS HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY. THE NFL SEASON STARTED IN SEVEN. KAREEM HUNT HAS NOT BEEN SUSPENDED, PUNISHED OR ANYTHING. WE DON’T KNOW IF THE NFL HAD ACCESS TO THIS VIDEO. THAT WAS A BIG STICKING POINT IN THE RAY RICE STORY. CHARLES: WE KNOW THE VIDEO WAS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. SO DID THE NFL REQUEST IT? DID THEY INVESTIGATE IT? THE POLICE DETERMINED THEY COULDN’T FIGURE OUT WHO THE AGGRESSOR WAS. MAYBE THEY SAW IT AS MUTUAL COMBAT, SO THEY DIDN’T PRESS ANY CHARGES. BUT THE NFL HAS SAID THEY ARE NOT BASING THEIR PUNISHMENT OF PLAYERS ON WHAT POLICE DO. SINCE THE RAY RICE INCIDENT — THAT IS WHERE SHE IS KNOCKED INTO THE WALL AND SHE IS DAZED. THAT IS KAREEM’S FRIEND, WHO IS ALSO DAZED. CHARLES: BUT SINCE THE RAY RICE INCIDENT, THE NFL HAS SAID — THEY ACKNOWLEDGED AT THAT POINT THERE WERE FLAWS IN THEIR INVESTIGATION OF RAY RICE. RICE WAS SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY, BUT NOT UNTIL WE POSTED THE VIDEO OF THE ELEVATOR. VAN: IT WAS INITIALLY A SLAP ON THE WRIST. SO KAREEM HUNT HAS NOT BEEN PUNISHED AT ALL. IF YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO, KAREEM HUNT HAD SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES TO WALK AWAY. THERE WERE FRIEND OF HIS, BIG GUYS WHO WERE TRYING TO PULL HIM AWAY AND MAKE HIM GO BACK TO HIS ROOM, AND HE DIDN’T. HE ESCALATED IT, AND ULTIMATELY THE WOMAN GOES CRASHING INTO THE WALL, AND SHE GETS KICKED. IF YOU ARE THE NFL, WHAT IS THE POINT OF A PERSONAL CONDUCT POLICY IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO ENFORCE IT IN THIS PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE? VAN: WE ARE ASSUMING THAT THEY HAVE SEEN THE VIDEO. CHARLES: NO. WHAT DID THE NFL SAY WHEN YOU REACHED OUT TO THEM? WE REACHED OUT TO THEM AND HAVEN’T HEARD BACK FROM THEM YET. UNCLEAR IF THEY HAVE SEEN THIS VIDEO OR NOT. AFTER THE RAY RICE THING, ROGER GOODELL SAID THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE MORE OF AN EFFORT TO SEE THIS. CHARLES: ONE OF TWO THINGS. THEY DIDN’T GET THE VIDEO, OR THEY GOT THE VIDEO, LOOKED AT IT AND FELT LIKE IT DIDN’T DESERVE PUNISHMENT. NEITHER OF THOSE THINGS IS VERY GOOD FOR THE NFL. VAN: OF COURSE IT DESERVES A PUNISHMENT. HAVING TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION EVERYTHING THAT EVERYONE SAID, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR HIS BEHAVIOR RIGHT THERE. AS FAR AS THE NFL’S PART IN IT, IT HAS BEEN QUITE SOMETIME SINCE THE INCIDENT HAPPENED, AND WE ARE JUST NOW GETTING THE VIDEO. YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHETHER OR NOT THEY SAW IT. FOR KAREEM HUNT’S PART IN THIS, MAN, YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN THIS. ALL OF THESE YOUNG GUYS THAT ARE IN THESE SITUATIONS — AND FORGET ABOUT BEING IN NFL. JUST PERIOD. WHEN DEALING WITH LADY AND WOMEN AS A HUMAN BEING, YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN THIS. THERE ARE A BUNCH OF THINGS YOU CAN SAY, ANY NAMES HE GOT CALLED, IF THAT HAPPENED, HOW HE MAY HAVE FELT. BUT YOU CAN’T LET THAT HAPPEN. I AM FROM ROANOAK, VIA. I AGREE WITH YOU. YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN THAT NOT JUST WITH WOMEN, BUT WITH PEOPLE IN GENERAL. YOU CAN WALK AWAY. THE VIDEO, IT WENT ON FOR SO LONG. IT FELT LIKE THEY COULDN’T GET ANY CONTROL OF IT. HIS ENTOURAGE, THEY SHOULD HAVE SAID SOMEONE ESCORT HER OUT AND I HAVE HIM. I FEEL OLYMPIC HE JUST LET — I FEEL LIKE THEY JUST LET IT GO. VAN: THEY COULDN’T CONTROL HIM. HE IS IN THE NFL. CHARLES: THERE WERE SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIM TO GO BACK IN THE ROOKIE AND LET IT GO. WE JUST PUBLISHED A THING A FEW MINUTES AGO. SOCIAL MEDIA — I KNOW SOCIAL MEDIA DOES WHAT IT DOES. BUT IT IS A BAD LOOK FOR KAREEM HUNT RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE ARE KILLING HIM FOR THIS. CHARLES: NOW THE NFL HAS TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO. THE CHIEFS HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO. AND KAREEM HUNT ON A PERSONAL LEVEL HAS SOME THINGS TO FIGURE OUT.
