Kareem Hunt told police officer he’d fail drug test in last week’s traffic stop

Browns running back Kareem Hunt was cited for speeding after being pulled over by police in Rocky River, Ohio last week, but he avoided a citation for marijuana possession.

Hunt also avoided any trouble related to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but it appears things could have gone that way. TMZ obtained video from the dashboard camera of the car that pulled Hunt over that includes audio from inside the car after the officer puts Hunt in the backseat.

The officer told Hunt that he could ticket him for marijuana possession after finding the drug in a backpack with his name on it — the officer also found an unsealed bottle of vodka — and that Hunt would be tested if that was the case. Hunt told the officer that he would fail such a test.

“It’s the offseason,” Hunt said. “Sorry I was having a good time.”

The officer told Hunt that he is a big Browns fan and said he is “shocked that you got a second chance” after Ray Rice failed to return to the NFL after a domestic violence incident. The officer then told Hunt, who was suspended for the first eight games fo the 2019 season for the same reason, that he shouldn’t be “pissing” on that second chance before seizing the marijuana and leaving Hunt without any other legal issues.

  1. The way certain players get away with these things. How can he not be cited and tickted? No one is asking for an arrest for a small qty of drugs, but this looks really bad and Goodell will do nothing.

  2. So if I’m reading this right, he admitted he would fail a (field sobriety) test? and if that’s the case the officer just let him go?

  3. Kareem said “he should be playing in the Super Bowl this week”. Which is 100% correct. Wish he was still playing for the Chiefs, But he lost it all, because he’s an alcoholic. And he hasn’t learn his lesson. Kareem do yourself a favor And STOP drinking!!

    I agree. Patrick Chung is a great example. How many games did he get suspended again?

  6. Imagine had Hunt not gotten drunk, not gotten into a fight, not lied to KC and not lost his job in KC.

    He’d be a top paid RB, likely in KC, and be on an already explosive offense and likely breaking records.

    But, he’d rather drink, lose his mind and cause problems. It’s more pitiful than sad.

  7. Yup, Kraft could be caught with one of his dead sex slaves and Goodell would defend him as always. Just like the losers in Boston who think if Tom Brady throws a football something about their own failed wasted lives changes.

  8. Dear NFL Poobahs: Please stop recruiting, drafting, employing, and exploiting felons. Please.

    Only when you are a focal point on their favorite football team
