Tyreek Hill’s name continues to be in the news for the wrong reasons.
According to reports, Tyreek Hill, a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, attempted to bribe the person he assaulted during an incident on June 18.
However, Hill quickly realized his mistake and tried to retract his offer, which was deemed laughable. South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Angie DiMichele revealed that Hill offered his 57-year-old victim $200 after slapping him.
Via Sun Sentinel:
The man didn’t know he was slapped by the highest-paid receiver in the NFL. Miami Dolphins star Tyreek Hill offered him $200 with his apology, according to a Miami-Dade Police report.
A supplemental report the South Florida Sun Sentinel obtained through a public records request Wednesday gives more details about what led to the alleged slap Hill planted on the neck of a fishing charter company employee at the Bill Bird Marina in Haulover Park on Father’s Day.
Ed Griffith, a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, said in an email Monday that they are reviewing the case.
The incident occurred when Hill and others entered a docked private boat, leading to a dispute. The boat captain requested that the party leave, to which Hill responded arrogantly, saying, “I can buy you and the boat.”
This infuriated Hill when he was held back by unknown associates from trying to cause harm. Although he did not identify himself, he claimed to be the “number 10 from the Miami Dolphins.” An employee of Kelley Fishing Fleet witnessed the altercation and alleged that Hill slapped him on the back of the neck. Surveillance footage supports the accounts provided by the captain and the employee.
Hill was subsequently identified in a photo lineup, and the incident is currently under investigation by the State Attorney’s Office. As of now, the NFL has not taken any action regarding the matter.
