According to TMZ, the surveillance video was taken at The Metropolitan at the 9 at 3:22 a.m. on February 10. At the beginning of the 79-second video, Hunt clearly shoves a woman. It then shows the incident reported. The man Hunt struck declined to press charges.
A report from ESPN said that following the release of the video, Hunt was excused from practice at the facility pending further action. However, TMZ.com also reports the National Football League will likely place Hunt on the Commissioner's Exempt list.
Police did not arrest Hunt, because they were reportedly unable to determine if a crime had been committed. Not only did the female call the cops on Hunt, but Hunt's friend also called police on her.
Cleveland police took statements in the incident, but did not charge Hunt.
The alleged incident happened in February.
The end of the video shows Hunt appearing to kick the woman as she's hunched over on the ground.
Apparently, the altercation followed, and one of Hunt's friends said she used a racial slur against him. The police report said Ottinger suffered abrasions to her knee and hand and a scratch on her chest.
Hunt's friend said the women stayed out in the hallway for about 30 minutes as Ottinger continued to yell and pound on the apartment door, the report says. At that point, Hunt came out of his apartment and "shoved and pushed" the woman, which is where the video picks up.
