Only one person was arrested or imprisoned on February 10 at the hotel where Kareem Hunt drove and kicked a college student, and that person was not even there when the now infamous video film was recorded.
“Outside The Lines” reported on Friday – one week after TMZ published a video that blocked Hunt’s career – Derek Szeto, a Boston businessman, was quoted for unordered behavioral poisoning. He came back to The Metropolitan at 9 in Cleveland around 3 am and Abigail Ottinger, Kent State Student Hunt attacked, approached Szeto in tears.
Ottinger was in hysterics, not only because of the incident with Kansas City Chiefs star driven back, but because of alleged abuse of hotel staff.
“The way the hotel handled this, and how the police happened to them, is really worrying and frustrating,” told Szeto for ESPN’s news program. “I feel special about the hotel, and the police should be called for their actions.”
In the police interviews published by TMZ last week, Ottinger was told to complain that the staff did not let her use the phone and put her debt on her for the incident. Tyler Krajcik, the hotel’s loss prevention officer, seems to be employed in the middle of mess.
“That was how I became involved, especially because the hotel would not let her use the phone,” said Szeto. “I could see that she had cutbacks on her. She told me that the guy at the front desk told her,” That’s What You Get to Be a Slut “, which I only found outrageous.”
Szeto claims He began recording on his phone when it came to growing over the hotel’s management of Ottinger and Krajcik initially approved it. But when the police arrived, he demanded Krajcik stopped recording. The police can be heard saying that Szeto was “illegally recorded someone” and “we do not need a prosecution because you’ve just committed a crime.”
Szeto was then placed in handcuffs and put in the back of a troop car. He says he was not drunk, as a citation claim, but chose to go back to Ohio to fight the fine.
Krajcik, who declined views on ESPN, told the police at the outset that they could not talk to jail without a delay or approval from the hotel owner. The hotel in a statement denies that its staff abused Ottinger.
“We condemn violent or aggressive behavior and always act in support of our guests’ wellbeing,” said the hotel leadership in a statement to OTL. “Our team member’s actions throughout this and every night imitate and exceed our standards to put safety and security first.”
“We reject any allegations that suggest otherwise and specifically deny the claims that our property failed to provide appropriate support or that our staff used vulgar language against anyone involved. The use of incorrect or disgusting languages is regrettable, and we have a zero tolerance policy in place to eliminate all such behavior. Now and from the beginning of this event, we continue to work with local officials or other legal investigators. “
ESPN talked to a member of the Ottingers family outside her home and was told” The whole event has been very hard for her and that all she wants now is her privacy. “
Hunt was released by the bosses after the video was released and was not taken for exemption. NFL says their investigation of the event is going on.
