A woman told police that Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt "shoved and pushed" her in a dispute in Cleveland over the weekend, according to a police report obtained by Cleveland.com
Per Cleveland.com, Abigail Ottinger, 19, told police Hunt assaulted her around 3:45 a.m. Saturday morning outside Hunt's hotel apartment at The Metropolitan at the 9, while a woman who was with Hunt's friends told police that Ottinger assaulted her. One police report lists Hunt as a suspect, and another lists Ottinger as a suspect.
Cleveland police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia told Cleveland.com the incident appears to be a cross complaint, meaning either accuser would be directed to the prosecutor's office if inclined to press charges.
According to the reports, Ottinger and a friend -- who said they were Kent State students -- spent the night visiting bars on a party bus with Hunt, Hunt's friend and others before going back to Hunt's apartment. The dispute occurred after Ottinger and her friend were asked to leave the apartment but remained in the hallway outside, making noise and banging on the apartment door, the reports say.
Ottinger told police that Hunt came out of the apartment and "shoved and pushed" her, causing abrasions on her knee and hand and a scratch on her chest, according to the report. A woman who in Hunt's group of friends told police that Ottinger hit her in the face when she went into the hallway with hopes of getting Ottinger and her friend to leave, per the report.
Hunt went to high school in Willoughby, Ohio and played in college at Toledo before being drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2017 draft.
