The police reports says they were called to a house on the 5400 Block of 30th street around 10:20 Saturday night. According to the police reports, an officer was told Hill "Tried to grab a teen and force him in his truck. The police officer reported the juvenile gave Hill an 'obscene gesture' and pushed Hill. Hill then hit the teen, causing injury."

Another source tells NewsChannel 11 during that fight, Hill may have broke the juveniles teeth and jaw. The child was taken to Convenant Medical Center.

Police charged Hill with injury to a child. LI.S.D. school administrators did not hear of the incident until Monday morning because it did not happen on school grounds.

"I think it is premature to make any judgments because there is not any information. The investigation is on going so we're reserving our judgment," said Nancy Sharp, L.I.S.D. Public Information Director.

Hill continues to be paid his salary of $39,530 while on administrative leave. Meanwhile, police continue with its investigation.
