Oklahoma State running back Tyreek Hill was arrested following an incident on Thursday night.
According to the Oklahoman, Hill, a junior, is facing domestic abuse charges after his girlfriend told police that Hill “hit her in the face and stomach and choked her.”
Hill’s girlfriend, whose name was not released, was admitted to the emergency room at the Stillwater Medical Center. She told police that she and Hill got into a fight that escalated into violence.
Hill was arrested at his home around 11 p.m. Thursday night “based on probable cause for Domestic Abuse by Strangulation.” Hill’s girlfriend, who said she is eight weeks pregnant with Hill's child, was treated and released from the hospital.
Hill, a junior college transfer in his first season with the Cowboys program, ran for 534 yards, caught 31 passes for 281 yards and returned three kicks (two kickoffs, one punt) for touchdowns this season. In the Cowboys’ season finale against in-state rival Oklahoma, Hill returned a punt 92 yards for a touchdown in the game’s final minute to force overtime. The Cowboys then won 38-35 in overtime, giving the team six wins and clinching bowl eligibility.
The Cowboys are scheduled to face Washington in the Cactus Bowl on Jan. 2. Hill’s status for the game is unknown.
