Local police are investigating Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill for an incident that took place on Sunday, as reported by Ian Margol of Local 10 News, an ABC affiliate. Hill is under investigation by the Miami-Dade Police Department after allegedly striking an employee at the Haulover Marina after a disagreement between the two.
Margol says that a tip to the news station revealed that Tyreek Hill got into “some kind of disagreement with an employee of one of the charter companies based at Haulover Marina that apparently ended with Hill hitting the man.”
The alleged incident occurred on Sunday evening. This occured while Hill was fishing with agent Drew Rosenhaus on Father’s Day at the Marina in question.
At this time, Drew Rosenhaus was unavailable to comment regarding the uncertain outcome of Tyreek Hill’s potential charges. However, on Tuesday afternoon, Rosenhaus shared a video on Twitter showing himself and Hill enjoying a day of fishing together.
Fox Sports 640 South Florida’s Andy Slater confirmed the allegations, tweeting that a “senior law enforcement source” confirmed the investigation. According to Slater, the victim doesn’t want to press charges now.
The NFL can investigate the matter for a personal conduct violation, even if Hill doesn’t face legal charges. Still, it could be impossible to prove a violation without cooperation by the alleged victim.
This is not Hill’s first run-in with law enforcement. On December 12, 2014, Hill was arrested in Stillwater, Oklahoma, for assaulting his then 20-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Crystal Espinal. Police reports stated that the two got into an argument. At one point, Hill threw her around “like a ragdoll,” punched her in the face, sat on her and repeatedly punched her in the stomach, and choked her.
In March 2019, Hill faced an investigation for battery charges. The charges came in response to an incident that caused his three-year-old son to suffer a broken arm. Despite this allegation, the NFL did not find Hill in violation of their personal conduct policy.
