Kansas City Chiefs Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said he was shocked by video footage showing Kareem Hunt kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel.
“We’d had some issues with Kareem not being truthful with what happened that night (in Cleveland) and we really felt in everybody’s interest we head in another direction,” Clark Hunt explained after Kansas City clinched a playoff berth with a 27-24 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
The Chiefs announced within minutes of celebrity news site TMZ posting the video that they were releasing the NFL’s reigning rushing champion.
“I don’t think we were necessarily trying to make a statement,” Clark Hunt said. “We just felt like the best thing for the Kansas City Chiefs moving forward was to part ways with Kareem.”
