The Cleveland Division of Police has launched an internal investigation into how the department responded to the February incident involving former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein.

The police announced the investigation Wednesday evening, stating that part of the probe involves looking into how the NFL obtained Hunt's police report without officially filing a records request.

"Following an internal review, it has been determined that in February 2018 a member of the Cleveland Division of Police provided a copy of the police report involving the Feb.10, 2018 assault incident at The 9 to a representative from the National Football League," the department said in a statement. "The report did not go through the official public records request process."
