No Charges Filed Against Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill

The Johnson County District Attorney’s offense has declined to file charges in the investigation involving Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, DA Stephen Howe announced on Wednesday. However, Howe is far from convinced that there was no wrongdoing. 

We believe the a crime has occurred,” Howe said, before adding, “The evidence does not conclusively establish who commit the crime.”

On Thursday, Hill issued a statement through his attorneys, though he did not speak specifically to the case:

I love and support my family above anything. My son’s health and happiness is my number one priority. I want to thank the Kansas City Chiefs, my attorneys, my agent and my union for supporting me through this. My focus remains on working hard to be the best person for my family and our community I can be and the best player to help our team win.

Authorities say Hill’s three-year old son suffered injuries, including a broken arm, at Hill’s home. At one time, authorities were also looking into Hill’s involvement in another incident where officers were called to Hill’s home to investigate a different instance of “child abuse or neglect.” 

All of the accusations are troubling, especially in light of Hill’s pre-NFL history with domestic violence. And, given the way the NFL has operated in recent years, Hill is certainly not out of the woods when it comes to league discipline.

So far, Howe says his office has not spoken to the league or the Chiefs about Hill’s case.

      Not for a repeat offender. Kareem just got 8 games, I expect more from the NFL on this. If there is any reason to throw the book at a player it’s when a three year old has a broken arm and there is reason to suspect that the father, who has already pleaded guilty to DV in the past, was involved.

      This whole thing makes me a sick, coming from a father who has a 2 year old.

        Exactly. The number one responsibility you have as a parent is to ensure the safety and well being on your child.

        In this case, the non-violent parent needs to get the child away from the violent one, and I’d bet bottom dollar on who the violent one is.

    I feel bad for the kid being in such a violent environment. Imagine being 3, a time that should be full of love and play, and having a parent break your arm.

    I’m not usually one to want authorities involved, but no kid should live like that.

    With the DA declining to prosecute, hopefully the suspension is light. Watching Mahomes and Hill together is awesome!

    I’m not condoning this but I heard Tyreek was in California at the time and his kid was with his girlfriend at home.

    Just because the Goodell police is involved, no proof will mean heavy discipline

    Hopefully the state will remove the kid from that abusive environment.

    would once again make sense if the police find nothing yet the NFL jumps at the shadows. Such a crime like this is honestly about as bad as it can get, but unless the police find evidence there is no reason he should be suspended.
