Speaking publicly for the first time since the Friday release of a video that showed him shoving and kicking a woman in a February incident, former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt said Sunday he was “embarrassed” and sorry for the incident but still hoped to be forgiven and afforded another chance in the NFL.
“Honestly, I just want to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions,” Hunt said in a live interview with ESPN’s Lisa Salters. “It’s been a tough time for me. I’m extremely embarrassed because of that video.
“I’m definitely not that type of person. My mother raised me right. … I know right from wrong.”
In the video published by TMZ on Friday, Hunt engaged in a verbal altercation with a woman at a Cleveland hotel and then shoved her. The woman subsequently swatted at Hunt’s face. Two men walked Hunt away before he charged back, colliding with a man who then knocks over the woman. While she was on the ground, Hunt kicked the woman with his right foot.
Hunt offered few details Sunday when asked about the incident unfolded.
