Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill had his young toddler removed from his and the boy’s mother’s custody, according to multiple reports.
Word of the boy’s removal from his parents’ care comes a month after the wide receiver was being investigated over alleged incidents of battery against the child, according to the Kansas City Star.
Hill and his fiancée Crystal Espinal were seen at a Johnson County, Kan., courthouse Wednesday as they participated in a “child in need of care case,” according to the newspaper.
According to KCTV News 5, Hill went to the Johnson County Courthouse for an emergency hearing April 5, which resulted in his son temporarily being placed in another home. It sounds like the NFL will in fact be investigating the situation.
Hill has not been charged with a crime. The NFL team said in a March statement it was “aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill. We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities.”
