Officers were previously called to Hill's address March 5 to investigate a report of child abuse or neglect.

The station reports Overland Park police were called to the home Thursday afternoon and that the National Football League and Chiefs are aware of the investigation, which Overland Park police turned over to the Johnson County District Attorney's Office for review. Hill and Espinal have a 3-year-old son, but he is not specifically named in any reports. Hill is not listed on that report, but Espinal is listed again under "others involved".

"The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill", the team said in a statement.

Tyreek has not been charged with a crime as of yet.

KCTV in Kansas City, Missouri, was among the outlets reporting on a battery investigation involving a child stemming from a call to Hill's home in Overland Park, Kansas, on Thursday.

FOX4-WDAF has reached out to the district attorney and the Chiefs for comment but has not heard back yet at this time.


Hill plead guilty to domestic assault and battery in August 2015 following a December 2014 incident in which he was alleged to have punched and choked Espinal, who was then pregnant with their son.

He received three years of probation and, as part of his plea deal, agreed to attend a 52-week batterer intervention course.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Chiefs and Hill were working on a new "record" contract.


According to multiple reports, the team was preparing to make the star wide receiver one of the highest-paid players in the game.

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

He completed probation in 2018 and his conviction was dismissed.
