Details: The video shows Hunt shoving a woman in a hotel hallway several times, eventually stumbling and falling down. As she attempts to get up, Hunt kicks her before being ushered off by people trying to hold him back. The team issued a statement saying they were made aware of the incident "earlier this year" and launched an investigation with law enforcement into the matter.
