The 25-year-old wide receiver is being investigated by Overland Park Police Department in Kansas following the allegation, the Kansas City Star reported.

The Chiefs said in a statement the team was aware of the allegation.

“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” the Chiefs said. “We’re in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We’ll have no further comment at this time.”

The Star report said police were investigating a report of battery which listed a juvenile as the victim.

Hill’s fiancee Crystal Espinal was listed as “others involved” in the incident report.

The report said the incident was against the couple’s son, whose age was given as three years old in other reports.

Hill is one of the Chiefs star players and had been in talks over a contract extension which was expected to make him one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the NFL.

Hill however has a history of violent outbursts.

In 2014, he reportedly punched and choked his partner Espinal when she was eight weeks pregnant with the couple’s son.

He was arrested and later kicked off the Oklahoma State University football team.

He later received three years probation after admitting domestic assault and battery in 2015.

The allegations against Hill represent the second disciplinary case to rock the Chiefs in the past year.

Last November, running back Kareem Hunt was dismissed by the club after the emergence of security video which showed him shoving and kicking a woman.

Hunt, who was later signed by the Cleveland Browns, was handed an eight-game ban by the NFL earlier Friday over the incident.
