Former Oklahoma State star and current Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill is under police investigation on allegations of assault/battery at a Miami Beach marina, a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade Police Department said Tuesday.
According to WPLG-TVi, Hill allegedly hit a marina employee during a “disagreement” that took place Sunday. Fox Sports 640 reported that Hill slapped the employee on the back of the head, but that the employee has declined to press charges at this time.
The Dolphins released a statement through a spokesperson, acknowledging the reported incident.
“We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Tyreek, his representatives and the NFL,” the Dolphins said in the statement. “We will reserve further comment at this time.”
It’s unclear if Hill will face any criminal charges stemming from the incident.
Hill is entering his second year with the Dolphins after starting his career in Kansas City with the Chiefs. Prior to that, Hill made a name for himself in college during his lone 2014 season at Oklahoma State. He totaled 1,811 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns. His 996 combined return yards ranked second in the nation.
However, on December 11, 2014, Oklahoma State dismissed Hill from their football and track teams for his domestic violence arrest a few days prior.
Hill’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has yet to release a statement on the incident.
