The clip, which came from an OH hotel hallway camera, was published by TMZ on Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs and the National Football League have been aware of Hunt's incident since it occurred, but the video brings a new dimension to the case. The man Hunt struck declined to press charges.

It should be noted that Hunt was also involved in a separate incident in June at a resort in OH where he allegedly punched a man. At one point he shoves and pushes her. Hunt then pushes at the woman and she and another man and both fall to the ground. However, Hunt responded by accusing her of being the one who assaulted him and his friends.

On February 15, 2014, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punched his then-fiancee (now wife) Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.

At the time, cops were called to the scene and a police report was made, but no charges were filed because Cleveland police viewed the incident as a cross complaint.

The NFL hasn't taken any action against Hunt over the alleged incident as he has appeared in all of the 9-2 Chiefs' games this season. He was not charged by prosecutors, but one police report listed Hunt as a suspect while another one listed Ottinger as a suspect.

In June 2018, TMZ reported that Hunt had been involved in a fight with a man at the Bay Lodging Resort in Put-in-Bay, Ohio.

When asked during camp about Hunt's offseason incidents, Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt acknowledged that "young men are not always going to make the best decisions".
