A person was arrested at a hotel and luxury apartment building in Cleveland on the night Kareem Hunt was caught on surveillance video assaulting a woman.
But it wasn’t the former Kansas City Chiefs running back.Instead Derek Szeto, a guest at The Metropolitan at the 9, was put in handcuffs and charged with disorderly conduct after he filmed police officers in the lobby.Szeto had allowed the woman who was assaulted by Hunt to use his phone to call 911 after an employee at the front desk told her she couldn’t use the phone there.
The actions of Cleveland police that night have drawn renewed scrutiny on the department, as well as questions as to why Hunt was not charged with assault and disrupting public service, both misdemeanors.
“I was scratched right here, I have a wound right here, I have a wound right here” the woman told officers as she pointed to parts of her body in bodycam footage released by the Cleveland Police Department. “He plays in the NFL. He’s an abusive person.”
