"I'm never going to call myself an expert".

The dispute occurred after the accuser and her friend were asked to leave the apartment but remained in the hallway outside, making noise and banging on the apartment door, the reports say. Four months later, Hunt was involved in another alleged assault, this time at a resort in OH where the running back reportedly punched a man.

"That's not an excuse", he said. That's just how I look at it. He was not asked during the ESPN interview about Hunt's role in a separate incident in June in which he allegedly punched a man at an OH resort.

Hunt explained how the conversation went with the Chiefs when they released him on Friday.

The decision came shortly after the National Football League suspended Hunt by putting him on its Commissioner Exemption List.

On Friday, Hunt was preparing to play against the Oakland Raiders this weekend when the TMZ Sports website posted the grainy but graphic security video.

In addition to being cut from the Chiefs, Hunt has been placed on the NFL Commissioner Exempt list, which means he is barred from practicing, playing in or attending games.
