Report: Police believe Tyreek Hill did not break son’s arm
The investigation into whether or not Tyreek Hill abused his son has been closed, and police reportedly believe the Kansas City Chiefs star was not responsible for the boy’s broken arm.
Prosecutors confirmed last week that the probe involving Hill is no longer active. According to a new report from Kevin Kietzman of Sports Radio 810 WHB, authorities believe after investigating that neither Hill nor his fiancee Crystal Espinal played a role in their 3-year-old son breaking his arm. After an examination from a medical staff, investigators “almost immediately” concluded that the boy’s broken arm was the result of reaching out to brace a fall in a typical toddler accident.
The report goes on to state that Espinal asked a third party to call police and blame Hill for the injury. Espinal later admitted she was trying to shame Hill because she felt he had become too controlling and abusive.
Both Hill and Espinal reportedly admitted to physically disciplining the boy with their hands and a belt, and authorities found bruises and welts on the child’s body after investigating. However, prosecutors reportedly felt they could not establish if either parent went too far with the discipline.
It was initially believed that an investigation into the claims against Hill would be reopened after an audio recording suggested he was responsible for his son’s injuries, but prosecutors simply said last week that the case is “no longer active.” Hill has denied all of the allegations against him, and he is expected to report to the Chiefs now that he is not facing charges. He could, however, still be disciplined by the NFL.
