Chiefs Rams Football

Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt warms up before an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams Monday, Nov. 19, 2018, in Los Angeles. 

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- Video has appeared online of Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt allegedly shoving and kicking a woman at a Cleveland hotel back in February.

Now, the Chiefs have said they are releasing him. 

At 7:50 p.m. on Friday, the Kansas City Chiefs announced that they are immediately releasing Kareem Hunt.

“Earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving running back Kareem Hunt. At that time, the National Football League and law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue. 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.”

TMZ posted the video Friday afternoon.

In a police report, Abigail Ottinger, 19, said Hunt shoved her outside of The Metropolitan at the 9 early in the morning on Feb. 10. In a second police report, Ottinger is accused of shoving a woman who was with Hunt and his friends.

One of Hunt's friends said Hunt requested Ottinger and another woman to leave when he discovered they were too young to drink legally, the second police report said.

The second police report also says Hunt's friend told police Ottinger used racial slurs against him and Hunt.

No charges have been filed against Hunt or Ottinger.

In August, Hunt addressed reports of both the February incident and another in which he was accused of punching a man. 

"You know, I'm learning from it, and I'm just focused on football ... you know just be in the right place at the right time, I'm just going to keep thinking about football, go out there and do my job," he said.

In August, according to ESPN, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt also addressed Hunt's character at that time and said that didn't expect the running back to be disciplined by the NFL.

"Kareem is a young man, second year in the league, obviously had a very big year on the field last year," Hunt said. "I'm sure he learned some lessons this offseason and hopefully won't be in those kind of situations in the future."

Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has been accused by a woman of shoving and pushing her over the weekend.  In a police report, Abigail Ottinger, 19, said Hunt shoved her outside of his apartment Saturday morning.  In a second police
