Less than one week after helping Oklahoma State upset Oklahoma on the road, Cowboys return man Tyreek Hill has been arrested. He has since been dismissed from the team.
According to Kyle Fredrickson of The Oklahoman, the junior from Pearson, Georgia, has been accused of domestic violence:
Per Fredrickson, Hill allegedly punched and choked the victim:
Fredrickson reported Hill has been dismissed from the team:
Jake Trotter of ESPN provides comments from head coach Mike Gundy, who spoke about the decision to dismiss Hill from the team:
In a release from the Stillwater Police Department, it is reported that authorities responded to a call Thursday night. After speaking with the victim, she identified herself as Hill's girlfriend:
The victim, a 20 year old female (name withheld), reported that she and the suspect, her boyfriend, were arguing and the argument escalated into a physical altercation. The victim identified the suspect as Tyreek Hill, 20 years of age, of Stillwater. The incident occurred at the suspect’s residence in Stillwater.
Oklahoma State released a statement on Friday regarding the arrest, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy:
Hill miraculously returned a punt 92 yards for a touchdown with just 45 seconds remaining in Oklahoma State's Bedlam game against the rival Sooners on Dec. 6. That tied the game, and OK State went on to win 38-35 in overtime.
That play also helped the Cowboys become bowl-eligible at 6-6. Oklahoma State will face Washington in the Cactus Bowl on Jan. 2, but it is fair to say that Hill's status is very much in doubt for that game.
