Video of the incident surfaced on Friday, appearing to show Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt shoving and kicking a 19-year-old woman.

Back in February, there was an incident at a Cleveland hotel that involved Kareem Hunt and a young woman he had brought back to his hotel room.

The Chiefs have not commented on the video.

Officers were called to the hotel after the incident.

Hunt was at practice on Friday but was sent home from the facility and excused from team activities after the release of video, sources told ESPN's Dan Graziano. The police were called, but no arrests were made because they couldn't determine if a crime was committed.

In body-cam footage obtained by TMZ, the woman in question and other witnesses give conflicting accounts as to what spurred the incident. The Chiefs play at Oakland on Sunday, a game that Hunt will not be able to attend while on the exempt list.

The woman, reportedly a student at Kent State, told authorities at the time that the argument began when she refused to hook up with one of Hunt's friends, the New York Post reported. While the next steps are unclear, Graziano reports that it's likely that Hunt will be placed on the commissioner's exempt list.

The video shows Hunt arguing with the woman, shoving her, and kicking her after he pushed his friend into her.
