The police report is dated Thursday, but it's unclear when the incident actually took place.

Sources tell KCTV5 that the Overland Park Police Department has turned over their investigation to the Johnson County District Attorney's Office for review.

According to Overland Park police, the original report was closed three days later when prosecution was declined.

The Kansas City Chiefs said Friday they are aware of the investigation.

According to the report from The Star, which cites a source close to Hill's fiancee, the incident involves the couple's son and resulted in the child sustaining a broken arm.

The Chiefs released a statement that read: "The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill". Hill and Espinal have a 3-year-old son, but he is not specifically named in any reports. "We'll have no further comment at this time".

This is the second time within the past year that such an incident involving a Chiefs player has come to light.

This is a very serious allegation especially given Hill's history of domestic violence.

IN 2015, Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery after his then-girlfriend said he choked her and punched her in December 2014 when Hill was a student at Oklahoma State University. That would surpass the contract for Odell Beckham Jr., who became the highest-paid wide receiver in National Football League history when he signed a five-year, $90 million extension with the New York Giants in August 2018. He received three years probation.

He completed probation in 2018 and his conviction was dismissed.

Hill is expected to sign a contract extension with the Chiefs this offseason that could make him one of the highest paid receivers in the NFL.
