Kansas City Chiefs announced last night that they have begun running back Kareem Hunt after TMZ released a video of an event that occurred in February as depicted Hunt attacks a young woman.
Minutes before the Chiefs message, NFL released a statement that hunting had been placed on the Commissioner’s excluded list, which means he can not play or train or participate in games until the investigation of the event is complete. The investigation began in February, but NFL claims they were watching the video right now, although TMZ could get it despite the fact that the Cleveland Hotel where the incident took place had the video and it is apparently that their policies only provide such video to local law enforcement. Cleveland PD probably did not give NFL any video.
The managers released a statement saying: “Earlier this year, we became aware of an event that drove back Kareem Hunt. At that time, the National Football League and law enforcement launched investigations into the matter. As part of our internal discussions with Kareem spoke several members of our management team directly to him. Kareem was not truthful in these discussions. The video released today confirms the fact. We let Kareem right away. “
So TMZ could not get the video without a problem, but somehow NFL and Chiefs were not. The credibility of this statement, despite that, Raiders will not have to worry about Kareem Hunt on Sunday, and no one else will be too long.
