Previously, Kareem Hunt was seen on camera kicking and shoving a woman on camera at a Cleveland hotel in 2018. After that, Hunt was accused of a violent encounter with a man at an Ohio resort in June 2018. Now, the NFL has issued an eight-game suspension to Hunt.
The NFL issued a statement saying “Hunt has advised the league office that he accepts responsibility for his conduct and the discipline that has been imposed.” They continued on saying “He has committed to take advantage of available resources to help him grow personally and as a member of the Cleveland community, and to live up to his obligations as an NFL player. The eight-game suspension will take effect as of the final roster reduction on August 31. Hunt will be eligible to play in the Browns' ninth regular season game."
