Kareem Hunt cut by Chiefs after release of brutal video

The Chiefs sent Kareem Hunt packing.

Kansas City announced it released the star running back hours after a video that showed him pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel was published Friday by TMZ.com.

Hunt was also placed on the commissioner’s exempt list by the NFL, meaning he cannot practice, play or attend games while the league continues to investigate.

The Chiefs, in a statement, acknowledged they were made aware of an incident involving Hunt earlier this year, but he lied to them during their talks with him.

“At that time, the National Football League and law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue,” the statement said. “As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. The video released today confirms that fact. We are releasing Kareem immediately.”
