Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill is under investigation for alleged battery of his child, according to The Kansas City Star and KCTV.

The Chiefs said at the time they had vetted Hill and were comfortable with their decision, and they put safeguards that included counseling and other checks they hoped would keep Hill on the right path.

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

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 a report from the Kansas City Star, the Overland Park Police Department is investigating a dispute that lists a juvenile as the victim.

Hill has not been charged with a crime.

According to that video, the first police report is dated March 5 and said child abuse and neglect as the criminal act.

Hill and his fiancée, Crystal Espinal, have a 3-year-old son. Both Hill and Espinal were named, but that investigation was closed within three days of opening.

As part of his plea agreement for the domestic abuse charge, Hill attended a 52-week batterer intervention course and was supervised for two years. He pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015 and received three years probation. He was dismissed from Oklahoma State University's football program after the arrest. After completing the requirements of his probation, Hill's conviction was dismissed and expunged in August 2018.

He had 87 catches for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, helping quarterback Patrick Mahomes win league MVP honors and the Chiefs win a third consecutive AFC West title.
