The Kansas City Star is reporting that Chiefs' wideout Tyreek Hill was named in a police report concerning the alleged abuse of a minor. She told police he hit her in the face and stomach, sat on her and choked her.

It is unclear when the alleged incident took place.

According to the report from The Star, which cites a source close to Hill's fiancee, the incident involves the couple's son and resulted in the child sustaining a broken arm.

Hill and Espinal, who were engaged in September, have history. Police were also called to the receiver's house on March 5 after a report of child abuse or neglect, but no one was charged and the case was closed after three days.

The judge said Huong was not well enough to continue with the trial on Thursday, and adjourned proceedings until April 1. They were then seen meeting a North Korean Embassy official and an Air Koryo official before flying out of the country.

The Chiefs subsequently issued a statement on Friday saying that they are aware of the matter and have been cooperating with the league and local authorities. Hill's name was directly listed on this report.

Hill pleaded guilty in 2015 to domestic assault and battery by strangulation after punching and choking Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on December 11, 2014. Espinal was eight weeks pregnant with their son at the time. Following his arrest, Hill was dismissed from the Oklahoma State football and track and field teams.

Off-the-field drama can't seem to stay away from the talented Kansas City Chiefs. He pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery in 2015, but the conviction was later dismissed and ordered expunged from his record after the completion of court-mandated probation.

More details are sure to come from this incident, but for Hill, this is simply the last thing he needs right now heading into what the Chiefs are hoping is a Super Bowl campaign in 2019.
