One of the women said she was told to leave after she refused to be with one of the men in the room with Hunt. Abigail Ottinger, 19, claimed she was "pushed and shoved" during a dispute in Cleveland, alleging to police that the Chiefs running back assaulted her around 3:45 a.m. on a Saturday outside his hotel apartment, according to Cleveland.com. According to TMZ, police were given access to the video from the Metropolitan hotel. While there have been reports that the woman in the incident screamed a racial epithet at Hunt and the video shows that she continued to approach him after his anger flared, those sources said they were disturbed by what they saw.
The NFL reportedly knew about this incident, but the sudden release of the video has caught the league and Chiefs by surprise. The league needs to implement a consistent system of punishment when it comes to incidents such as the one Hunt is now involved in. After that, as the woman crouches on the floor, Hunt kicks her. Chiefs beat writer Nate Taylor reports that the team is working on a statement regarding Hunt. Hunt's charge caused both the man and the woman to fall to the ground.
When asked during camp about Hunt's offseason incidents, Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt acknowledged that "young men are not always going to make the best decisions".
Hunt denied the allegations, and TMZ Sports reported in July that cops were unable to determine if anyone was assaulted and closed the case.
TMZ also acquired police video from last February where both the Woman and Hunt's friends gave statements on the incident. The Chiefs, 9-2, are sitting atop the AFC heading into Sunday's matchup against the Oakland Raiders. The police report said Ottinger suffered abrasions to her knee and hand and a scratch on her chest. "I'm sure he learned some lessons this off-season and hopefully won't be in those kind of situations in the future".
