Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt has played all season despite allegations that he assaulted a woman in a Cleveland hotel room in February.

The clip, which came from an OH hotel hallway camera, was published by TMZ on Friday afternoon.

According to Dan Graziano of ESPN, the Chiefs sent Hunt home from the practice facility after learning of the video. The Chiefs (9-2) are at Oakland on Sunday.

In the days and weeks following the incident, no charges would be filed and no punishments would be handed down by the Chiefs or the NFL. One of the women said she was told to leave after she refused to be with one of the men in the room with Hunt. Rice was originally suspended for two games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who later was heavily criticized for handing out such a light penalty after the video was released. But the video shows Hunt knocking over and kicking the woman in a Cleveland hallway.

"[It's} unclear why the National Football League has not taken any action against Hunt", according to TMZ. According to police reports, obtained by TMZ Sports, surveillance video from the hotel was obtained by law enforcement. He was not charged by prosecutors, but one police report listed Hunt as a suspect while another one listed Ottinger as a suspect. The police were called, but no arrests were made because they couldn't determine if a crime was committed. Abigail Ottinger, 19, told officers that Hunt "shoved and pushed" outside of what Cleveland.com calls Hunt's "hotel apartment".

Hunt was asked about the incident back in August, but didn't have much to say. "I'm sure he learned some lessons this off-season and hopefully won't be in those kinds of situations in the future", he said.
