After the first round of the National Football League draft concluded Thursday night, Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said in a statement that Hill is barred from all team activities. We are greatly concerned for Tyreek.
"We were deeply concerned. We have great concern for Crystal, we are greatly concerned for Tyreek, but our main concern is with the young child".
KCTV said the audio was sent to the station without disclosing from whom.
"This office has reviewed all the evidence and has declined to file charges against Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal", Howe said. CNN has been unable to reach Espinal.
In the recording, the man denies striking the boy's arm.
"I'm the one that gets physical with him."
Hill replied back in the recording, saying, "You need to be terrified of me, too, b--".
Putin and Kim shake hands for the first time
Moscow has kept a relatively low profile as Kim embarked on what has been an audacious diplomatic journey over the past year. Russian Federation would like to gain broader access to North Korea's mineral resources, including rare metals.
A day later, KCTV in Kansas City aired part of an 11-minute audio file in which Espinal tells Hill earlier this year that when the boy was asked about his injured arm he replied: "Daddy did it".
Neither parent has custody of the child after an emergency hearing on April 5 when a judge removed the boy from Espinal's care. "Now, I really want you to sit and think about it because I rode for you against that detective and the CPS people". We believe a crime has occurred.
Howe said Wednesday that he believed a crime occurred, but the evidence wasn't clear in establishing who committed the crime. Pettlon also said that Hill waived his Fifth Amendment rights, answered questions from law enforcement and the Department of Children and Families, and that he would continue to cooperate with authorities as they provide a safe environment for the child.
Hill maintained his innocence in a statement issued Thursday, hours before the audio surfaced. According to the Kansas City Star, Hill's son suffered a broken arm. Veach promised the team would make the right decision when the time was appropriate.
Hill was drafted by the Chiefs and then-GM John Dorsey despite numerous red flags. He also had one rushing touchdown and one punt return for a score. KCTV reports the recording which is from March was an "insurance policy" for Espinal who is "covering" for Hill. In August, the conviction was dismissed, and records were expunged.
But Reid indicated the Chiefs would have drafted Hardman regardless of Hill's situation. So I'm very sensitive to that. We feel good that he is trying to right a wrong - a big wrong. "I completely understand the other side".
Potential Precedent: While the Chiefs have not released Hill, the team released running back Kareem Hunt during the season after video of his assault came out. Hunt was signed by the Cleveland Browns in February.
