Tyreek Hill, a star wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, is under investigation over allegations of battery stemming from an incident earlier this week, according to multiple reports.

"A source familiar with the situation said Hill's fiancee has been in contact with Overland Park police", the Star's Steve Vockrodt and Brooke Pryor reported.

Hill has not been charged with a crime, but is under investigation in the matter.

The report states Hill's fiancee Crystal Espinal is listed as "others involved". Hill and Espinal have a 3-year-old son, but he is not specifically named in any reports. The report is dated Thursday but it is not clear when the incident occurred.

Dolphins trade quarterback Ryan Tannehill to Tennessee
Tannehill was originally due $18.7 million in salary in 2019 and was set to count as $26.6 million against their salary cap. But he didn't have enough of them and then injuries really hit, including an ACL injury that wiped out his 2017 season.

"The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill", the Chiefs' PR team has written in the interim. "We'll have no further comment at this time".

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. 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. In 2015 he pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery of Espinal, who was pregnant at the time. He reportedly punched and choked Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on December 11, 2014. He received three years probation.

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. Upon completion of his probation requirements, the felony conviction was dismissed in August 2018 and the charge was wiped from his records.
