In the video, Hunt is seen arguing with the woman, a 19-year-old, in the hallway before shoving her several times and kicking her while she's on the ground.
But the woman told police that Hunt came out of the hotel apartment and "shoved and pushed her", which caused scrapes on her knee and hand and a cut on her chest, according to the police report. At one point, he can be seen pushing another man into her sending both of them to the floor and leaving the woman apparently fazed.
Law enforcement sources obtained the video from The Metropolitan and sent it to prosecutors. However, TMZ.com also reports the National Football League will likely place Hunt on the Commissioner's Exempt list.More news: Australia's largest steer towers over herd at over 6ft tall

Police were called to the scene but no arrests were made that night because officers say they were unable to determine if a crime has been committed, TMZ reported, citing police reports.
It's reminiscent of the Ray Rice situation in 2014, after the then-Ravens running back knocked out his fiancee (now wife) in a hotel elevator. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt went to bat for Hunt. "I'm sure he learned some lessons this off-season and hopefully won't be in those kind of situations in the future". At the beginning of the 79-second video, Hunt clearly shoves a woman. The Chiefs, 9-2, are sitting atop the AFC heading into Sunday's matchup against the Oakland Raiders. They also claimed that the woman called him racial slurs which provoked retaliation. Rice was initially given a two-game ban for the incident, but was then suspended indefinitely after TMZ published video of the assault from inside the elevator.
Though the man told TMZ that Hunt had punched him hard, he did not seek medical attention and did not want to press charges.
