Kareem Hunt's Victim Has 18 Months To Press Charges

After Sunday's overtime loss, Matt Nagy was asked directly if the Bears planned on placing a waiver claim on Kareem Hunt, the star Chiefs running back who was cut Friday after video surfaced of him assaulting a woman.

The Chiefs said they were made aware of the incident earlier this year, and law enforcement and the National Football League initiated an investigation.

Although the details of the February incident are well known following the release of the surveillance video by TMZ on Friday, the details of the June incident aren't as clear.

In August, the team's CEO Clark Hunt was asked about "some off-season issues" involving Kareem Hunt.

"I want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions", Hunt said, in an interview with ESPN, stressing that he doesn't see himself as the type of person who assaults women.

Kareem Hunt, the now-former Chiefs running back, spoke with ESPN on Sunday. Then, hours after the video came out, the Chiefs announced they were releasing Hunt.

He added: "I just regret not getting it all out there".

Rice was originally suspended two games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who later was heavily criticised for such a light penalty after the video was released. Besides asking them to survey the footage, the victim wanted the Cleveland PD to retrieve the sim card Kareem Hunt had stolen from her phone before kicking her out the lobby.

"That perception is for me to change", Lanier said.

The dispute occurred after the accuser and her friend were asked to leave the apartment but remained in the hallway outside, making noise and banging on the apartment door, the reports say. When I saw the video, it was like my first time seeing it.

Hunt pointed out that he was raised by his mother and grandmother, and they "they always taught me well".

He said several times he was "embarrassed" and insisted: "I know right from wrong". That was when the full gravity of his actions hit him, he said. "He has a long life to live, this will be a defining moment, but it shouldn't be the moment that defines you".

"Everything is happening fast right now and I just want everybody to forgive me", Hunt said.

The problem for Hunt is that it's going to be hard to argue that the February incident was a one-time lapse in judgement if he went out and punched a guy in the face just four months later. "I think I deserve it because if you really know me and everybody that I'm really close to - I've had woman really close women that are friends and everybody".
