Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is reportedly being investigated for battery on his young son.

The Kansas City Star reports that a police report lists a juvenile as the victim, and that the victim is Hill’s son. The Star reports that Hill’s son was left with a broken arm.

In 2014, when Hill’s fiancee was pregnant with their son, Hill was arrested and accused of punching and choking his fiancee. He later pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation. He and his fiancee later reconciled and have said recently that they plan to get married soon.

The Chiefs confirmed that they are aware of the matter.

“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” the Chiefs said in a statement to the Star. “We’re in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We’ll have no further comment at this time.”

Hill has not been arrested or charged in connection with this incident.

  1. I never felt good about this guy after hearing about his incident in college. Let’s see if the Chiefs stay consistent with their no tolerance policy on abusers.

  2. This us sick and disgusting. The NFL needs to step up and send a message and protect the women and children of this league. Hunt only getting 8 game suspension?!?! This is crazy to me… what example is this sending to the youth of America, it’s ok to hit women if u have talent?!?!

  3. Here’s how punishment works under Goodell
    1. Is there a video? Yes = suspension. No, go to next step
    2. Is Twitter outraged? Yes = suspension followed by a virtue signaling statement from Goodell. No, go to next step.
    3. Is Goodell currently being critized for any unrelated issue? Yes = suspension and self serving statement. No, go to next step.
    4. Push it off on team to handle.

  4. Not a surprise….he got away with assaulting his pregnant girlfriend. I hope this doesn’t get swept under the rug. True fans should demand his suspension.

    Hilarious! But you forgot to put “Suspend Tom Brady” between 3 and 4.

  6. Dorsey drafts and signs bad character guys. Instead of praising him, call him out on it. the Browns roster is next. That’s how you know this light at the end of the tunnel (they think) is really a train.

  7. The Chiefs can get by without dirtbags like Hunt and Hill because Mahomes is the real thing.

    Hopefully the Chiefs realize that fact and dump Hill in a hurry. As they did with Hunt.

  8. what GM drafted all these characters who think violence against women and children is perfectly fine?
    kicked off OSU football team for domestic violence in dec 2014. along with Hunt

  9. I guess the rest of the comments section has gathered all the facts? Alright then, off to the gallows we go I guess 🙄

  10. John Dorsey is salivating right now. He gets so much credit for drafting these guys to the Chiefs. Such a genius he is, to not care one bit about character basic human decency. Hill, beckham and landry will be a helluva tandem though I guess

  11. Wasn’t happy when the Chiefs drafted him but he fulfilled everything required from his case in college & has appeared to be a model citizen since joining the Chiefs. But if this is true I say cut him & good riddance, regardless how soft the spineless commissioner decides to be on him because of his talent.

  12. Love reading all the professional investigators on here who jump on the guilty train before even knowing any facts in the case at all. As a retired federal agent I can tell you that this entire thought process is dangerous to our representative republic. Let’s let the facts be known before making any assumptions of guilt or innocence and let’s let the law enforcement professionals do their jobs. If he is guilty then he gets what he deserves. If not, he deserves the same level of respect as anyone else in the league.

    The Chiefs would probably be SB champs, if they had Hunt in the AFC Championship game.

  14. This is Andy Reid personified… he only cares about making money. And he’s made a ton, from his children to hiring anyone who can enhance his bank account. I await for his, let’s give him a chance response.

    Federal Agent? You were probably a mail man. Also he is on trial with public opinion and since he is a repeat offender we the people find him GUILTY. If u really were an agent you would know most people don’t get all the facts when it’s a high profile person.

  16. That’s so sick, and unfortunately, so KC Chiefs. When you ignore the player’s history of violence, you’re setting yourself up for major problems later.

  17. Ok, immediately on exempt list, for 2019 season, suspended 10 games in 2020, and put in battery protocol with 12 counseling sessions per week mandatory. That’s how the NFL dishes out justice.

  18. IF…it comes out as true then I wanna see how Roger deals with it…will he be consistent?..Adrian Peterson was suspended the rest of the season (6 games)..and no pay and had to be reinstated the following year for abusing his own child..that was welts with a switch, not a broken arm..and if he did abuse his own son It’d be sickening!..ain’t no amount of money or speed gonna help him on the day of judgement..

    You certainly don’t sound like any federal agent that I’ve worked with. In fact, they tend to be ultra-conservative and think that we placate the accused far too much.

  20. Chiefs probably wishing this came out before Antonio Brown was traded away for peanuts

  21. Unless there’s video proof, this dudes gonna walk away scotch free. He’s a professional athlete with a lot of money and expensive lawyers. They can just say the kid fell. Sad, but it’s true.

    Don’t tell the Browns! They’ll trade for him…

    Dorsey will get him on waivers.

    Doesn’t tandem mean two? It’s a fabulous trio.

  24. I’m sorry but this is the Chiefs fault.

    Why draft these guys. There are red flags all over the place.

    Same with Pats and Hernandez.

    Some guys have it rotten to the core..

    But let’s change the overtime rule right?

  25. Chiefs learned their lesson with Kareem Hunt. Just wait it out. People will eventually forget. this too shall pass. don’t overreact like you already did.

    This is the best thing the chiefs could have asked for. now they get to keep this guy on a much smaller contract.

    the only thing they have to do is hope the suspension isn’t for a full year.

    The same respect as anyone else in the league? He admitted to punching and choking his pregnant girlfriend. There is no speculation on that one. I’m sorry but you don’t get the benefit of the doubt anymore after that

  27. Hopefully jail time and banned for life. He should have been in jail already for what he did to his pregnant girlfriend prior to the draft. He never should have been in an NFL uniform in the first place.

    There was already evidence he punched his pregnant girlfriend. That is enough to ban him in and of itself.

  29. ((The Chiefs would probably be SB champs, if they had Hunt in the AFC Championship game.))

    UMM NOOO.The chiefs not going to the super bowl had nothing to do with the absent of Kareem hunt and every bit to do with Dee ford lining up inches offside with the 31st rank defense of theirs.

    The stats show Kareem HUNT replacement on the chiefs having the SAME NUMBER of YARDS per carry. The Chiefs finish the season with the NUMBER ONE OFFENSE, NEVER scoring under 26 points before Hunt left and after. That’s why Mahomes was the MVP of the league and the best player.

  30. Everyone, don’t worry about it. At least he didn’t smoke weed like Josh Gordon. That would have been absolutely horrible. The negotiations for this next CBA will be quite interesting.

  31. In this day and age i dont want to jump to conclusions but its hard not to when he beat the crap out of his pregnant gf and choked her. if its true he needs to be delt with very harshly, if guys are being suspended for whole seasons for smokeing pot then assaulting other people or breaking a kids arm should be suspended for life.

  32. Love how we judge then gather facts, probably true but what a self righteous group on here. Still not sure what this has to do with football, if a guy did this hed gace what penalty the courts decided and that’s it, he still has a job. These guys arent roll models stop acting like they are, their millionaire punks from the streets that will always be.

  33. Wow what a idiot but Chiefs are lucky he didn’t sign a contract extension boy that would of been a mess Can you imagine they gave him 50 million guarantee and had to release him.

  34. Hill, and Hunt, would be banned from the league if they played for the Raiders! Different treatment, for different teams is BS.

  35. I get the impression that Andy Reid is afflicted with the same syndrome that Nebraska’s Tom Osborne had, he couldn’t win the big games, then he went out and recruited guys like Lawrence Phillips, Christian Peter, Damon Benning, Tyrone Williams, Riley Washington, to name a few.

    Looks like Andy did the same with Hill and Hunt.

    He broke his sons arm.

    ————————————

    Really? Then why is his gf named and he isn’t on the battery charge?

  37. Some of you people with your jealousy for Roger Goodell. What in the world does Goodell have to do with a player assaulting someone? That is just a silly shot at the commissioner. And he didn’t take a knee, so he will be fine in the NFL’s eye anyway.

  38. Why hasn’t he been arrested?

    The NFL should have a zero tolerance policy with lifetime bans. But no. He’s protected by the NFL.

  39. Is this going to be another case where someone else takes the blame to get an athlete off the hook? One old fashioned question. Why hasn’t he married this girl and why is she still with him if he isn’t willing to make a commitment? The worst part is a foolish judge exponged his record of the first assault against his pregnant girlfriend. No matter how you slice it he’s a piece of trash in my book.

  40. Here are the current details as reported by our local KCTV 5’s investigation that I’ve copied and am pasting here:

    March 5th – a police report filed naming both Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal for suspected child abuse. Declined to prosecute.

    Yesterday, a police report filed naming only Crystal Espinal for suspected battery of a juvenile.

    Tyreek was involved in an brief investigation 10 days ago. The case was closed without filing charges.

    He IS NOT named in the current ongoing investigation regarding the juvenile battery.

  41. I used to wonder how someone so nice slipped to the 5th?! Honestly surprised he got drafted and hoped he’d learn from before because not everyone deserves a second chance.

  42. Everybody bashing Tyreek not realizing he was in San Diego when his boy broke his arm in Overland Park, Kansas!!!!! Read/ watch/ listen to all the details first before you accuse.

  43. If you can’t control your temper and you break your kid’s arm or kick your pregnant girlfriend,you don’t belong out in society,let alone the NFL. If the Chiefs wind up cutting him,maybe Cleveland will grab him to join his buddy Kareem Hunt. This woman needs to get away from Hill and make it stick.

    The facts are that he previously assaulted his pregnant girlfriend. Now he’s being accused of breaking that baby’s arm. No one but an out-of-control lunatic would do that. He’s a repeat offender and the hammer should come down this time. He’s proven that he can’t keep it together. So he can run fast. Great. He can’t be a decent human being? Ban-worthy.

    ______________________________

    Wrong. Hill is protected by the NFLPA, NOT the NFL.
    Wonder why suspensions get reduced or eliminated? It’s because the NFLPA protects PLAYERS from discipline by the NFL.
    WHY does everyone forget that? SMH

  46. Tough break for the Chiefs. I was surprised they took such a hard line with Hunt. I was impressed. I have to think they would do the same thing here except they just watched the Browns sign Hunt with an 8 game suspension. That had to be hard to watch. Darned if you do and darned if you don’t.

  47. Hey maybe wait until someone actually accuses him of doing this first? Being investigated and being charged are wildly different things.
