Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Cleveland Police are conducting an internal review to find out how the NFL was able to obtain a copy of a police report stemming from the Kareem Hunt incident on Feb. 10 without going through a proper records request according to

Cleveland police said they did not receive a formal request from the league until after TMZ published video of the incident, which occurred at the Metropolitan at the 9 in downtown Cleveland.

An unnamed officer gave a copy of the report to the NFL back in February reported.

The Chiefs released Hunt on Nov. 30, mere hours after the video went viral, after determining that he lied to them about his involvement.

The video published by TMZ showed Hunt push a woman, push another man into a woman and then kick her as she attempted to get up while friends of the parties involved attempted to intercede throughout the confrontation that occurred in a hallway.

Cleveland police interviewed the parties involved but they did not view the surveillance video.

No charges were filed against Hunt, who is currently on the commissioners exempt list while the NFL revives their investigation into the matter.

Hunt, who is unlikely to play again this season, could face at minimum a six-game suspension – if not more – at the outset of the 2019 season.
