Recently, Kansas City Chiefs Ridged Back Kareem Hunt will learn his immediate destiny on Monday at 16:00. ET when the shut-off wire comes out. Hunt may not learn until the offseason when he gets back to a field for an NFL team again.
The expectation is expected to end with a long suspension.
According to sources of direct knowledge about the situation, Hunt faces more than the baseline sex player suspension for breach of NFL’s personal conduct policy. The league has also investigated an incident involving Hunt allegedly having hit a man at the face of an Ohio resort in June. NFL is believed to have found enough that incident to add Hunt’s discipline.
Since penalties for two incidents will not be served independently of each other ̵
1; and since the watch on a suspension does not start when a player is on the reserve / commissioner’s excluded list – I can not only see the rest of the 2018 season but well into 2019 season.
It assumes that a team gives him character to play, which is not a given.
This was released on Friday when TMZ published a video of a Cleveland hotel showing Hunt Shoving and killing a woman. The managers released him after saying that he lied to them by minimizing the event. He later told in a statement: “I regret deeply what I did. I hope to move on from this.”
NFL, who never completed its Hunt survey, hopes to move quickly. It’s likely to make a new attempt to reach the victims – there were several attempts earlier by email and phone to no avail – and I will also be interviewed.
A complication may be about the Cleveland Police Dept. begins to investigate again; which may extend NFL’s investigation and disciplinary action. While the video was released on Friday, it was boasting more than just Hunt’s actions. Neither NFL, nor the bosses, had seen the video before it was released.
A league source said that NFL bade the hotel twice and was told that the hotel would only let it go to law enforcement. There was a request for public registration in June that contained body scams and 911 calls, but not the tape.
The league also asked the Cleveland police for it and was told they did not have it.
According to Sergeant and Public Information Officer Jennifer Ciaccia of the Cleveland Police Department, she does not believe anyone with the department saw the video either. Officers submitted two police reports, but the video was not part of the survey file.
It was a misdemeanor, she said, and the detectives do not follow up as they do with felonies. In other words, detectors did not go back for the video. They referred victims to the city prosecutor for filing charges.
Victims have not yet submitted fees. The concept of restrictions allows the victims to still charge charges in the wake of the video, but Monday is the earliest possible, Ciaccia said.
