This happens way too often, a video surfacing the Internet of a professional athlete beating up a women. And well this one caught me a little off-guard.
In the midst of an outstanding season for the Kansas City Chiefs you wouldn’t expect something like this coming up in the news.
TMZ originally reported the altercation:
“Kareem has not missed a single game this season despite the incident happening MONTHS before the 2018 NFL season kicked off … and team CEO Clark Hunt publicly stated in August he doubted Hunt would be suspended.
Hunt turns a corner and confronts the woman, shoving her hard. The woman strikes him back in the face … and that’s when Hunt goes berserk.
As friends try to hold him back, the 2017 Pro Bowler — who led the league in rushing yards — explodes and knocks one of his friends into the woman … who both go flying into a wall.
Both Kareem’s male friend and the woman appear dazed — but Kareem makes his way over to the female and kicks her while she’s crouching on the ground … knocking her over.
Police were called to the scene but no arrests were made. According to police reports, obtained by TMZ Sports, surveillance video from the hotel was obtained by law enforcement. We’re told that video is part of the evidence that was submitted to prosecutors.”
Here is the video of what the teenage girl who was with Kareem and seen being kicked:
TMZ reached out to the NFL and hasn’t heard back yet.
