Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is now under investigation for alleged battery. "We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities".

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

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

Following the incident with Espinal, Hill went to therapy and went to counseling for anger management.

It is unclear when the alleged incident took place. Her name is listed on both police reports.

James Gunn rehired to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3
Gunn was sacked last July over tweets from almost a decade ago in which Gunn joked about subjects like pedophilia and rape. Now, according to Deadline , Gunn will begin production on Guardians 3 once he concludes work on Suicide Squad 2.

According to a police report obtained by KCTV, police in Overland Park, Kansas, were called to Hill's home Thursday to investigate an alleged battery in which a juvenile was a victim and Hill's fiancée is listed as "others involved". He received three years probation after his plea. He was dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team and pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015. Experts believe men who strangle their partners to be among the most unsafe abusers out there.

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. His base annual salary as of 2019 is $1,965,036.

Spotrac's market value calculator estimates that could entail a five-year $95.5 million offer from the Chiefs. 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.

He completed probation in 2018 and his conviction was dismissed.
