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 second report, dated March 14, regarded alleged battery of a juvenile at the same address.

According to the Kansas City Star, Espinal is also pregnant with twins.

The allegations against Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is both shocking and concerning, especially when you consider he is being accused of breaking the arm of a small child.

"We're in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities", the club said in a statement. "We'll have no further comment at this time". Hill's name is directly listed on that report.

Overland Park police Officer John Lacy said the case has been turned over to prosecutors for review.

The US says sanctions will remain until Pyongyang destroys all nuclear sites. "That's Chairman Kim's word". The spokeswoman said the ministry had not confirmed why the North Korean officials decided not to attend.

According to the Star, "A source familiar with the situation said Hill's fiancee has been in contact with Overland Park police".

Hill allegedly punched and choked Espinal in December 2014, leading to his release from the Oklahoma State football program.

This is a very serious allegation especially given Hill's 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. The domestic violence conviction was dismissed and expunged from his record a year ago after he completed his probation requirements. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015. He was given three years of probation and ordered to undergo anger management classes.

The conviction was dismissed in August and expunged from his record after he finished probation.

He was taken in the third round by the Chiefs in the 2016 NFL Draft.
