The NFL will not discipline Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill, who was accused of assaulting his son.
The league could not find evidence Hill committed the crimes in the accusations. However, theyy will leave open case if further evidence emerges, but Hill is free to report to camp, practice and play this season.
There was tape of Hill and fiancee Crystal Espinal arguing over their 3-year-old son’s broken arm with Espinal telling Hill their child was “terrified” of him. “You need to be terrified of me too, bitch,” Hill allegedly says on the recording. “That’s why you can’t keep a f–king man.”
The full statement from the NFL is below:
Over the past four months, we have conducted a comprehensive investigation of allegations regarding Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Throughout this investigation, the NFL’s primary concern has been the well-being of the child. Our understanding is that the child is safe and that the child’s ongoing care is being directed and monitored by the Johnson County District Court and the Johnson County Department for Children and Families.
In conducting our investigation, we have taken great care to ensure that we do not interfere with the county’s proceedings or compromise the privacy or welfare of the child in any way. The information developed in the court proceeding is confidential and has not been shared with us, and the court has sealed all law enforcement records. Local law enforcement authorities have publicly advised that the available evidence does not permit them to determine who caused the child’s injuries.
Similarly, based on the evidence presently available, the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy. Accordingly, he may attend Kansas City’s training camp and participate in all club activities. He has been and will continue to be subject to conditions set forth by the District Court, Commissioner Goodell, and the Chiefs, which includes evaluation and therapeutic intervention.
If further information becomes available through law enforcement, the pending court proceeding, or other sources, we will promptly consider it and take all appropriate steps at that time.
