In the days and weeks following the incident, no charges would be filed and no punishments would be handed down by the Chiefs or the NFL. TMZ reports that prosecutors had access to the hotel surveillance video, and the hotel, in a statement to ABC News, said it is assisting in the investigation.
Someone can be seen trying to restrain Hunt, who weighs 201 pounds, before the woman hits him in the face, sending him into a fit of rage. At one point, however, he appeared to barrel into a man, who then bumped into the woman and sent her flying. In perhaps the most appealing moment, Hunt kicks the woman as she's crouching on the ground. The video was first reported by TMZ on Friday. After the video went public, the Chiefs made a decision to send Hunt home.

As for the video, the entire incident took place in the early morning hours of February 10.
Police were called to the scene during the February 10 incident, but no charges were filed. The woman told officers that the argument started when she refused to hook up with one of Hunt's associates and was kicked out of his hotel room.
The woman's friend records what's happening, but a man snatches her cell phone away. The police report said Ottinger suffered abrasions to her knee and hand and a scratch on her chest.
A report from ESPN said that following the release of the video, Hunt was excused from practice at the facility pending further action. After refusing to leave, the gossip site says that Ottinger "began calling him and Hunt the N-word and specifically she stated, "F*** you n*****". When asked to elaborate on the lessons he learned, he replied: "Just be in the right place at the right time". "I'm going to keep thinking about football and go out there and do my job".
The NFL reportedly knew about this incident, but the sudden release of the video has caught the league and Chiefs by surprise.
