According to reports, Pro Bowl wide receiver Tyreek Hill is being investigated by the Overland Park Police Department for battery. Espinal is named in the March 5 report under "others involved", according to the Kansas City Star. A source told the publication that the alleged incident was against the couple's three-year-old son and reportedly resulted in a broken arm. "We will have no further comment at this time".

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

A source familiar with the situation said Hill's fiancee has been in contact with Overland Park police.

In a statement to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs acknowledged an investigation involving Hill is taking place.

"I just want everybody to understand that we have done our due diligence with regards to full vetting each one of our draft-class members", former Chiefs GM John Dorsey said after drafting Hill, per the Star.

While starring at Oklahoma State in 2014, Hill allegedly punched and choked Espinal when she was pregnant with their son.

This immediately raises the question, however, and what this means for his being the writer and director on The Suicide Squad . This will please all Guardians of the Galaxy and James Gunn fans and we hope that this gets confirmed by Marvel soon.

As part of his plea agreement for the domestic abuse charge, Hill attended a 52-week batterer intervention course and was supervised for two years.

He went on to become a fifth-round pick by the Chiefs.

He completed probation in 2018 and his conviction was dismissed. "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".

In 16 games for the Chiefs past year, Hill hauled in 87 receptions for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns, leading the National Football League with his 15.0 scrimmage yards per touch.

Hill is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the Chiefs had been building their roster to create enough salary cap flexibility to sign him to a long-term deal.
