Prosecutors say there is not enough evidence to pin a crime on anyone.
Back in March, we reported that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and his girlfriend Crystal Espinal had been implicated in two separate child abuse probes, one of which resulted in the broken arm of their three-year-old son. The Johnson County (Kansas) District Attorney office launched an investigation into the matter and today, they held a press conference to explain their findings.
District Attorney Stephen M. Howe spoke in front of the media and explained that while the DA's office believes a crime did, in fact, occur, there is no evidence that can prove which parent committed the alleged crime. Having said that, Hill will not face any charges when it comes to the investigation.

The DA's office also explained that they're taking measures to make sure the child involved is taken care of properly and that such an incident doesn't occur again.
Hill has had a history of violence in the past. Back in 2015, he pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in relation to an incident involving Espinal when she was pregnant with their son. At the time, Hill was given three years of probation and had to complete some anger management classes.
