Tyreek Hill Under Investigation For Alleged Battery Of A Juvenile


Both Hill and Espinal were named, but that investigation was closed within three days of opening.

The station reports Overland Park police were called to the home Thursday afternoon and that the National Football League and Chiefs are aware of the investigation, which Overland Park police turned over to the Johnson County District Attorney's Office for review. Hill is not named in the second report.

Overland Park police spokesman John Lacy confirmed the 25-year-old is the subject of a police criminal investigation, but would not confirm any other details. A source told the Star that the victim was Hill's young son that he has with his fiancee, Crystal Espinal.

The allegations against Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is both shocking and concerning, especially when you consider he is being accused of breaking the arm of a small child.

As of Friday afternoon, Hill has not been charged with a crime.

FOX4-WDAF has reached out to the district attorney and the Chiefs for comment but has not heard back yet at this time.

While he was in college in 2014, Hill was accused of punching and choking Espinal, who was pregnant with the couple's child at the time. He received three years probation after his plea.

Tyreek Hill's employers the Kansas City Chiefs were informed of the incident before The Star broke the story. The domestic violence conviction was dismissed and expunged from his record past year after he completed his probation requirements.

Hill transferred to West Alabama and was chosen by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, a selection widely criticized given his history. The charges were later dismissed and expunged after he completed his probation requirements.
