IRVING, Texas The NFL on Wednesday defended its controversial handling of the Kareem Hunt investigation, even though incriminating surveillance video of the star running back footage that surfaced months after his skirmish with a woman in a Cleveland hotel led to the Kansas City Chiefs releasing him.
There is information out there in this surveillance society that we cant get when we need it, and when we get it we act on it, said B. Todd Jones, the leagues special counsel on conduct said at the December owners meetings, making his first public comments on the incident.
Hunt, the NFLs defending rushing champion, was captured on video shoving and kicking a woman in the hallway of a Cleveland hotel in February. Police were called but no arrests were made. The NFL and Chiefs contend they never saw that video until TMZ released it last month.
