Oklahoma State University football player Tyreek Hill was arrested Thursday night on a domestic abuse complaint, after police said he punched and choked his pregnant girlfriend. 

According to Stillwater police, at 9:39 p.m., officers responded to the Stillwater Medical Center Emergency Room to investigate a reported domestic assault and battery.

The victim, a 20-year-old woman, told police that she and her boyfriend, 20-year-old Tyreek Hill, were arguing at Hill's home in Stillwater, and the argument escalated into a physical altercation.

According to the police report, the victim said Hill “threw her around like a ragdoll.” During the altercation, the victim said Hill punched her in the face, busted her lip, punched her in the stomach and choked her.

The victim sustained injuries and went to the emergency room to seek treatment after the altercation. Police said the victim's injuries were consistent with her statements. She has been treated and released from the hospital.

According to the police report, the victim said she and Hill began dating around June, 2014, and that she is 8-week pregnant with Hill's child. Police said the victim was very concerned about her pregnancy due to Hill punching her in her stomach.

The victim said this had happened before back in the summer, but she did not report it at the time. She said she had gotten into altercations with Hill before, but it has not been this bad, just a lot of “man handling” and that Hill has never hit her.

The victim also told police that Hill has a volatile temper and that he thought it was okay to punch and shake her. She said he had been very violent with her.

Hill was arrested shortly after 11 p.m. at his home. According to police, while being arrested, Hill said he was being arrested for “being black and she was white.”

Police said Hill now faces one count of domestic abuse by strangulation, a felony punishable by one to three years of imprisonment and/or a $3,000 fine.

A bond has been set at $15,000 for Hill on the condition that he does not contact the victim. His mother said she will post bond and will hire an attorney in the next few days. Hill is set to return to the court on January 13. 

According to OSU's Cowboy Football page,  Hill enrolled at OSU in January of 2014 and made an immediate impact by winning the Big 12 indoor title in the 200 meters and taking second in the 60 meters to help lead the Cowboy track and field program to its first Big 12 team championship. 

Hill earned All-America status in the 200 meters with a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships. He returned a Sooner punt to score in the final minute of Bedlam on Saturday, December 6.
