Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is under investigation for an alleged battery, according to Steve Vockrodt and Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star.
A source told the Star that the incident was against the couple's son, and Hill's fiancee had been in contact with the Overland Park police. As of Friday evening, Hill has yet to be accused of any crime, according to The Star.
According to a police report obtained by KCTV, police in Overland Park, Kansas, were called to Hill's home Thursday to investigate an alleged battery in which a juvenile was a victim and Hill's fiancée is listed as "others involved". Both Hill and Espinal were named, but that investigation was closed within three days of opening. "We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities".
"The club is aware of the investigation", the team said.
This is a very serious allegation especially given Hill's history of domestic violence. The Chiefs selected Hill in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The incident was expunged from his record in August 2018 after he completed probation requirements.
He's just the latest Chiefs player to find himself in hot water. "Do we communicate with him? Yes. Every team has that, but it gives you confidence in human beings that they can make a change when they put their mind to it and do things the right way".
The two-time All-Pro had also positioned himself for a massive payday.
The 25-year-old receiver finished the 2018 season with 87 receptions for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns as the Chiefs went 12-4 on the season before falling to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. The largest contract given to a wide receiver is the $90 million, five-year deal that the Giants gave Odell Beckham Jr., who has since been traded to the Cleveland Browns.
