Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill Under Investigation For Alleged Battery On Child

Share

Tyreek Hill, a star wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, is under investigation over allegations of battery stemming from an incident earlier this week, according to multiple reports.

Hill has not been charged with a crime, but is under investigation in the matter.

According to a police report from the Overland Park Police Department that was filed on Thursday and obtained by The Kansas City Star, there was a battery incident that lists a juvenile as the victim. Hill's fiance, Crystal Espinal, was included among "others involved". "We will have no further comment at this time". A source told Vockrodt and Pryor the battery involves the couple's 3-year-old son, and the child suffered a broken arm. The incident in question seemingly took place on March 5th in the suburbs of Kansas City. He was kicked off the Oklahoma State football team and received a deferred three-year sentence that was later expunged from his record in 2018.

Hill pleaded guilty in 2015 to domestic assault and battery by strangulation after punching and choking Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on December 11, 2014. Following the 2016 NFL Draft, the Chiefs faced some backlash for selecting Hill, who pleaded guilty to abusing and strangling Espinal while the two were in college.

The Chiefs said at the time they had vetted Hill and were comfortable with their decision, and they put safeguards that included counseling and other checks they hoped would keep Hill on the right path. He was given three years of probation and ordered to undergo anger management classes.

The conviction was dismissed in August 2018 after Hill completed his probation requirements.

Last season he had 87 catches for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns.
