CLEVELAND — Dee Haslam is a member of the committee in charge of investigating Kareem Hunt's incident from The Metropolitan at the 9 hotel that happened last year.

Haslam is a member of the Conduct Committee, which investigates players involved in violent crimes and determines their punishments.

She was added as a member when the committee was formed in 2014.

According to ESPN, Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwell is the chairman, other members include Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, Houston Texans owner Robert McNair, Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Charlotte Jones Anderson and Chicago Bears owner George McCaskey.

It is unknown if Haslam will have to recuse herself from the Hunt investigation.

Late last year, TMZ released video of Hunt shoving, pushing and kicking a woman at the 9 Hotel in Cleveland back in February 2018. That video resulted in Hunt being released by the Chiefs.

Hunt has voluntarily sought counseling after being involved in multiple incidents this past year.
