Victim willing to press charges against Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill in alleged assault, battery – NBC 6 South Florida

A new Miami-Dade police report says the victim in an alleged attack involving Miami Dolphins wide receiver Terek Hill is willing to press charges.

Although the incident report released by police on Wednesday does not name Hill or the alleged victim, officers described the incident as an argument that turned material on the evening of June 18.

According to the report, the alleged victim, who works for the Kelly Fishing Fleet, was working on a charter boat at the marina in Haulover Park when he noticed two women on a fishing boat without permission.

The alleged victim said that as he was telling the women to get off the boat, a fight broke out between the staff and the group the women were with.

During the argument the victim said he was slapped on the back of the neck by a man he believed to be Hill.

The report said the man was pushed away from the victim by a member of his group before he charged the victim and had to be restrained by several members of his group.

The report said the incident was recorded via surveillance video, but the footage has not been released.

When the police were called the next day, the report said, the victim did not have any visible injuries.

The word “YES” is written in a section of the report that asks, “Would the victim prefer the charges?”

Police said Tuesday that they are investigating allegations against Hill, but that, as of now, no charges have been filed.

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

Hill, 29, was a fifth-round pick for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016 and won a Super Bowl with the team in 2020.

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