KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – The Kansas City Chiefs have released a statement following the announcement that the Johnson County District Attorney has declined to issue charges against Tyreek Hill.

The short statement basically is a “no comment” citing the ongoing investigation by the Department for Children and Families.

“This afternoon we were informed that Tyreek Hill will not be charged by the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office. Due to the continued investigation by the Department for Children and Families, we will have no further comment at this time.”

District Attorney Steve Howe noted Wednesday that while Hill is not facing any charges at this time, cases of child abuse have a five-year statue of limitations under Kansas Law.

When asked by KCTV5 News if that meant Hill could face charges in the future, Howe responded by simply saying, “Anything is possible.”
