Body camera video has been released showing how Cleveland Police and The Metropolitan at the 9 hotel handled allegations that former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt assaulted a woman back in February.
The Chiefs released the former Willoughby South star on Friday after surveillance video surfaced Friday showing Hunt shoving and kicking the 19-year-old woman.
There is nearly 90 minutes of footage from one officer. In it, we can see that a witness was detained and later cited by police after allowing a woman to call police from his cell. Both he and the victim say hotel staff wouldn’t allow her to call 911 after she was assaulted by Hunt on the 23rd floor of The 9.
“A woman was beat up. I called the police and I ended up arrested because the hotel refused. Yeah… you guys have been great,” he says on camera.
In the video, hotel security asked police to get the witness to delete video footage from his phone, which he refused.
“This gentleman filmed inside of our property. Is there any way we can have him delete footage before you guys leave? Because he did not have permission,” the security officer tells police.
