Kareem Hunt Allegedly Involved In Separate January Altercation

TMZ Sports has obtained a police report from an incident that occurred back in January involving a man who claims he was attacked by former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt.

According to the report, the man claims he was at a nightclub around 2 AM on January 7, 2018 when he saw his friend getting shoved by three men including George Atkinson Jr.

The man claims he confronted Atkinson and was punched in the shoulder before being attacked by all three men including Hunt.

TMZ says that the man claims to have been struck in his body and head multiple times and ultimately knocked unconscious before being treated in an emergency room for a broken rib, broken nose and multiple bruises and contusions.

Police noted that the accuser had cuts on his mouth at the time he filed his report.

Neither Hunt nor Atkinson was arrested and no charges were ever filed in the case after the victim stopped cooperating with investigators.

This is the third altercation Hunt has allegedly been involved in the over the past year.

Ian Rapoport, citing sources with direct knowledge of the situation, reported that Hunt is facing more than the baseline six-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

The NFL placed Hunt on the commissioner’s exempt list before the Chiefs announced his release Friday. He’s ineligible to play until Roger Goodell removes him from the list.

Hunt, 23, is a former third-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2017. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.263-million contract and set to make base salaries of $555,000 and $645,000 over the next two years of the agreement when the Chiefs waived him last week.

Hunt officially cleared waivers on Monday and is now a free agent.

In 2018, Hunt has appeared in 11 games for the Chiefs and rushed for 824 yards on 181 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 26 receptions for 378 yards receiving and 14 total touchdowns.
