According to multiple reports, Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is under investigation for battery by the Overland Park, Kansas police along with the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office . The investigation comes after Hill’s fiancee, Crystal Espinal, 24, filed multiple police reports listing their three-year-old son as the victim. Hill has not been charged with a crime.
Champion Daily has obtained a police report regarding the battery incident that lists a juvenile as the victim. Espinal, 24, is listed under “others involved.” The report is dated March 14, 2019, but it’s unclear when the alleged incident took place.
A source familiar with the situation said Hill’s fiancee has been in contact with Overland Park police. The source said also added the incident was against the couple’s 3-year-old son, resulting in a broken arm. As of Friday afternoon, Hill had not been charged with a crime.
Hill, 25, is one of the Chiefs’ most prominent players. The team and the star receiver have been discussing a large contract extension that’s expected to make him among the highest-paid players at his position.
Hill has a history of domestic violence. He reportedly punched and choked Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on Dec. 11, 2014. He was arrested and dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015. He received three years probation. The Chiefs selected Hill in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
The conviction was dismissed in August 2018 and ordered to be expunged after he completed his probation requirement.
In January, while appearing at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Hill announced the couple were expecting again, twins.
