Report: Hill punching son was ‘boxing lessons’

The story involving Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and his soon keeps getting disturbing. First, he was investigated by the authorities for beating his son.

While the police investigated the matter, the case is now inactive and no charges have been filed. The NFL was blocked in their pursuit of all the information in the case and ruled that they could not say either way if he violated the league’s personal conduct policy.

Now, Hill is claiming that he was beating his son in ‘boxing lessons,’ according to what he said to the media on Sunday via Deadspin. His son previously said ‘daddy punches me.’

“Punching my son in [his] chest, that would probably refer to me teaching my son how to box, ’cause we do got boxing gloves at our house, and our son he’s like Iron Man,” Hill said. “So he loves Iron Man, Aquaman, he’s like ‘daddy come on, come on, come on’ all the time. So that’s what it is, man. And you know, sometimes things get thrown out of context when feelings get involved, and emotions. But I ain’t gonna get into all that right now.”

His former fiancée Crystal Espinal claimed that Hill ‘punched’ their child for crying. She has since ended her relationship with Hill — and now is seeking custody of the children.

The NFL said they were not able to secure the relevant information against Hill.

“The information developed in the court proceedings is confidential and has not been shared with us, and the court has sealed all law enforcement records,” the NFL said in a statement following their Hill investigation. “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.”
