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. The report is dated Thursday but it is not clear when the incident occurred.

"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. The following statement was issued by the Chiefs' organization in support of the Kansas City Star article.

The team confirmed it's aware of the investigation.

Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews said Friday the team has been in contact with local authorities and the National Football League as it gathers more information but declined further comment. "We'll have no further comment at this time".

Hill's name is not listed on that report; only that of his fiance, Crystal Espinal is. It's also worth noting that no arrests have been made as of this moment.

"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.

The 25-year-old Hill has a history of domestic violence. 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.

While starring at Oklahoma State in 2014, Hill allegedly punched and choked Espinal when she was pregnant with their son. Hill later plead guilty to those charges in 2015.

He went on to become a fifth-round pick by the Chiefs. After completing the requirements of his probation, Hill's conviction was dismissed and expunged in August 2018.
