Former Garden City Community College running back Tyreek Hill was arrested late Thursday night in Stillwater, Okla., on suspicion of felony domestic abuse by strangulation, according to The Oklahoman.
Hill was a two-year starter for the Broncbusters before moving on to Oklahoma State for this season.
The alleged victim is Hill’s eight-weeks pregnant girlfriend, whose identity has not been released, according to The Oklahoman.
After being formally charged on Friday afternoon, Hill was dismissed from both the Oklahoma State football and track teams, head football coach Mike Gundy announced in a press release:
“Oklahoma State University does not tolerate domestic abuse or violence. Based on the evidence and the serious allegations that have been made, Head Football Coach Mike Gundy has announced that Tyreek Hill has been dismissed from the OSU football team. He also has been dismissed from the track team. The allegations are under investigation by Stillwater Police and by the OSU Office of Student Conduct. Those processes will proceed independently.”
Hill starred for two seasons at Garden City, earning All-KJCCC honors both years before signing a letter-on-intent to play for Oklahoma State, where he immediately became an impact player, including a game-saving 92-yard punt return for a touchdown to bring the Cowboys to a 35-all tie with rival Oklahoma on Dec. 6.
Hill had 1,811 all-purpose yards for the Cowboys this season, and five touchdowns.
