Kareem Hunt heads to counseling amid horrendous attack video: report


Kareem Hunt is getting help.

The former Chiefs running back is entering counseling for alcohol and anger management, NFL.com reports. The news comes more than a week after a February video surfaced of the 23-year-old attacking a woman in a Cleveland hotel.

Hunt, who was released by Chiefs soon after the horrendous video was published by TMZ late last month, is also being investigated by the NFL for two separate incidents.

A man in June accused Hunt of punching him at an Ohio resort, while another says the Pro Bowler was involved in a January nightclub clash. No charges have been filed in these altercations.

The NFL placed Hunt on its commissioner’s exempt list shortly after the hotel video made its rounds online as a means to keep Hunt off the field as it investigates his off-the-field behavior.

The remaining teams passed up on claiming the troubled running back off waivers.

Hunt broke his silence on the brutal February attack during an interview with ESPN last week.

"I regret the entire thing, everything," Hunt said. "I'm going to take the time to better myself, learn from this, get some help if needed, talk to people and really just take this really serious."
