OLATHE, Kan. (AP) Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill maintained his innocence Thursday after prosecutors in suburban Kansas City declined to charge him in a domestic incident involving his fiancee and 3-year-old son even after concluding a crime occurred.
Hill said in a statement provided by his attorney that his "son's health and happiness is my number one priority." Hill also said that his focus is on "working hard to be the best person for my family and our community that I can be, and the best player to help our team win."
Police were called to the Hill's home twice last month, and investigators determined that his child had been injured the second time. On Wednesday, the district attorney in Johnson County, Kansas, declined to press charges because he could not determine who was responsible for the injuries.
