19-year-old Abigail Ottinger told police that Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt “shoved and pushed” her in a dispute over the weekend in downtown Cleveland, according to Courtney Astolfi of Cleveland.Com.
Ottinger claims that Hunt caused abrasions to her knee and hand, and a scratch to her chest. No charges have been filed yet.
A Middleburg Heights woman told police that Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt “shoved and pushed” her in a weekend dispute at The Metropolitan at the 9 in downtown Cleveland, according to a police report.
No charges were filed against Hunt as of 3 p.m. Monday. A spokesperson for the Kansas City Chiefs did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
And a woman that was with Hunt and his friends filed a complaint saying that Ottinger assaulted her.
Abigail Ottinger, 19, of Middleburg Heights, told police that Hunt assaulted her around 3:45 a.m. Saturday outside Hunt’s hotel apartment, but another woman who was with Hunt’s friends said that Ottinger assaulted her, police reports say.
One police report lists Hunt as a suspect, and another report lists Ottinger as a suspect.
Cleveland police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said the incident appears to be a cross complaint, meaning that each person who said they were assaulted would be directed to the prosecutor’s office if they wanted to pursue charges.
The group reportedly went back to Hunt’s apartment after a night out at the bars in downtown Cleveland, and Hunt’s friends told police that they kicked Ottinger and her friend out of the apartment once they learned both were 19 years old. However, Ottinger claims that they were kicked out because she “didn’t want” one of the men in Hunt’s group.
Hunt’s friend also claims that Ottinger called them racial slurs after being told to leave the apartment.
There are many more details in the Cleveland.Com story on these conflicting reports, but one thing we can be sure of is that the accusations are not at a good look for Hunt.
Hunt, 22, led the NFL in rushing yards with 1,327 in his rookie season after being selected by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2017 draft out of Toledo.
