An investigation is under way into an alleged minor assault at the home of Tyreek Hill, the Kansas City Chiefs star receiver in Kansas City.

In a statement Friday, the chiefs acknowledged that an investigation involving Hill was ongoing.

"The club is aware of Tyreek Hill's investigation," said the Chiefs. "We are gathering information and we are in contact with the league and the local authorities, we have no other comments for the moment."

Overland Park police officer, John Lacy, said the case had been referred to prosecutors for review. No charges were brought against Hill, and spokeswoman Johnson County Attorney Kristi Bergeron did not immediately return a phone message asking for comment.

According to a police report obtained by KCTV, police in Overland Park, Kansas, were summoned Thursday to Hill 's home to investigate an alleged battery in which a minor was allegedly a victim. Hill's fiancée was on the list of "people involved". Hill was not on the report.

The officers had already been summoned to Hill's office on March 5 to investigate a case of child abuse or neglect. Hill's name was written on this report. According to the Overland Park Police, the case was closed three days later when prosecutions were denied.

The Kansas Department of Children and Families also informed the Kansas City Star that he was investigating the latest incident.

"I can only confirm that we have received a report and that an investigation is under way," DCF spokesman Mike Deines told the Star.

While he was in Oklahoma State, Hill was found guilty of domestic assault for an incident in which he was accused of hitting and choking on his girlfriend. He was sentenced to three years of probation and anger management classes.

He completed his probation in 2018 and his conviction was dismissed.
