Miami police investigating alleged assault involving Dolphins star Tyreek Hill | Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill is under investigation by Miami-Dade police for assault and battery after he allegedly hit a man on Sunday.

The incident was first reported by WPLG-TV in Miami after the television station received a tip on Sunday night. The station reported that Hill got into an argument with an employee of a charter company at Haulover Marina in Miami, which apparently ended with Hill hitting the man. Andy Slater, a Miami sports radio, reported that Hill allegedly slapped the charter employee on the back of the head but the man had initially declined to press charges.

“We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Tyreek, his representatives and the NFL,” a Dolphins spokesperson said on Tuesday. “We will reserve further comment at this time.”

The Kansas City Chiefs traded Hill to Miami last year, and the Dolphins gave the three-time All-Pro a $120m, four-year contract extension that made Hill the highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history. He caught 119 passes for 1,710 yards and seven touchdowns in 2022.

Miami-Dade police confirmed on Tuesday that they are investigating an “assault/battery” involving Hill.
