Miami sports radio show host Andy Slater reported that Hill slapped the employee on the back of the head, but the man has declined to press charges at this time. Hill nor his agent Drew Rosenhaus have publicly commented on the matter, but the 29-year-old's team did issue a statement on Wednesday. 

"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 spokesperson for the Miami Dolphins said in a statement.

Tyreek Hill is about to enter his second season with the Miami Dolphins. Last season was one of his best, earning 1,710 receiving yards and seven receiving TDs. He spent his first six seasons with the Chiefs and won a championship with them in Super Bowl LIV in 2020. 

This isn't the first time Hill has been under investigation. In 2019, the 29-year-old was named in a police report involving an alleged child abuse incident in March, however, he wasn't criminally charged.
