TheBallerLife.com has learned that ESPN is reporting that NFL star Kareem Hunt’s accuser Abigail Ottinger called him the “N-Word” and hit him during an altercation at s hotel in Cleveland, Ohio.
“I only know those girls through a friend,” Watkins tells officers in the video. “They invited us to a club tonight. We got to the club, and they were overly drunk, as you can tell. But come to find out, they’re not even 21. They’re 19 years old. We were like, ‘Can you guys please leave us alone?’”
Watkins tells police Ottinger and her friend, Dominique Hamilton, got along fine with everyone throughout the evening, but that ended inside Hunt’s residence. According to Watkins’ account, Hunt said Ottinger and Hamilton couldn’t stay the night. Watkins says he offered $20 when they said they didn’t have enough money for an Uber ride home. After he sent them into the hall, Ottinger began to scream and pound on the door, according to his account.
“They’re in the hallway, like standing by the elevator,” Watkins tells police. “I come out and I’m like, ‘You guys are being too loud. Please just leave us alone.’ She started freaking out, grabbing the back of my head. She broke my necklace. She tried calling me the N-word. She called us n—–s and s— like that. We’re like, ‘There is no point of you to do that. We just want you to leave us alone.’ Then they started getting aggressive, hitting us.”
He says Hunt’s friend, Nicole McManamon, went into the hall to try to calm Ottinger down, and that’s when things got even more physical.
“[McManamon] was being really nice, like, ‘Hey guys, could you please leave? You’re being obnoxious; you’re bothering us. Please leave,” Watkins tells police. “And then they f—ing tackled her.”
A friend of Hunt’s attempts to hold Hunt back, but Ottinger appears to reach past that man and strike Hunt. Several of Hunt’s friends drag him back into his apartment, but he surges back into the frame and careens into another friend, who careens into Ottinger, who falls near a wall.
