Tyreek Hill got himself in a bit of trouble during the offseason after an untoward incident at the Miami Beach marina back in June. The Miami Dolphins star had to be held back by his companions after a heated confrontation with a marina employee. The incident allegedly got physical, with the said employee accusing Hill of hitting him with an open hand during their argument.
Tyreek Hill Accused of Striking Marina Employee
Footage of the incident later surfaced and it does show Hill swinging at his accuser as the Dolphins star was being held back by a companion:

According to reports, things escalated after Hill took exception to the employee confronting two women from her group. Apparently, the women entered one of the charter boats without consent, which led to the employee asking them to get off. Tyreek Hill supposedly did not appreciate the gesture.
After the incident, Hill himself showed remorse for his actions. He later told the press that he regrets his decision and that he “just can’t make boneheaded mistakes like that.”
NFL Will NOT Punish Tyreek Hill for Incident
According to reports, police opted not to pursue charges against Hill. The Dolphins wide receiver reportedly reached an undisclosed settlement with the employee, and that was the end of that.
For their part, however, the league launched an investigation on the matter. The probe has now been completed, and Hill will be glad to know that the NFL has decided against handing him any type of punishment for the incident:
“NFL won’t take any action against #Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill, league spokesman says,” per Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network.
There was some fear that Tyreek Hill would be slapped with some sort of suspension and be forced to miss a handful of games for the Dolphins in 2023. The good news is that this won’t be the case after the league decided that his actions did not deserve any punishment.
It would probably be safe to assume that Hill’s camp had to give the employee some sort of monetary compensation during their settlement, and I guess the NFL thought this was enough punishment for the four-time All-Pro WR.
