Tyreek Hill’s attorney issued a letter to the NFL on Thursday rebutting allegations of domestic abuse against the Kansas City Chiefs’ star wide receiver.

“[Hill] categorically denies he has ever ‘punched’ his son in the chest or anywhere on his body, or otherwise touched him in the chest in a mean-spirited manner or as a form of discipline,” Hill’s attorney  N. Trey Pettlon wrote in a letter first obtained by ESPN Thursday.

Hill was investigated for his alleged involvement in breaking his three-year-old son’s arm, but prosecutors initially decided not to file charges after they couldn’t determine who injured the child. (RELATED: Travis Kelce Says Tyreek Hill Returning To The Chiefs Is ‘Still Up In The Air’)

However, the case against Hill was re-opened after disturbing audio emerged that appeared to involve Hill threatening his fiancee after she confronted him about their son’s injury. He was subsequently suspended from all team activities.

“You need to be terrified of me too, b****” Hill appears to be heard saying.

Hill was kicked off the Oklahoma State football team in 2014 for striking his pregnant then-girlfriend (now his fiancee), and plead guilty to a domestic abuse charge months later.
