CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has entered alcohol counseling and anger management counseling according to a report from NFL reporter Ian Rapoport.
In an interview shown on ESPN on Dec. 2 Hunt said he was going to get treatment after video from TMZ showed him assaulting a woman in Cleveland in February.
“I want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions,” Hunt said in the interview.
The NFL released a statement last week about the investigation of Hunt:
The NFL’s investigation began immediately following the incident in February. Consistent with standard investigatory practices, the NFL continues to pursue a complete understanding of the facts. The NFL’s ongoing investigation will include further attempts to speak to the complainants involved in the incident. It will include a review of the new information that was made public on Friday – which was not available to the NFL previously – as well as further conversations with all parties involved in the incident.
Rapoport said Hunt may suspended 6+ games by the league.
The Chiefs released Hunt after the video surfaced online.
In the TMZ video, Hunt is seen shoving a woman, who then strikes Hunt back in the face. Hunt then appears to make his way over to the woman who was knocked to the ground during a separate confrontation and kicks her.
Hunt was not been charged in connection to the incident. According to Chiefs reporter Nate Taylor, the kick from Hunt was not described in the police reports.
