Tyreek Hill avoids further legal issues in marina altercation

The legal side has been settled for Tyreek Hill in an offseason altercation but the NFL could still bring some sort of punishment.

Earlier this offseason, former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill found himself in potential legal trouble with the word that he'd been involved in an altercation at a marina in North Miami Beach. Now it seems that all has been forgiven, at least legally, and that Hill will be able to avoid any official charges.

It is still possible that the NFL might punish Hill with some sort of suspension or fine, charges or not.

An unnamed employee with Kelly Fishing Fleet was previously willing to bring charges against Hill for slapping him on the back of the neck as an argument turned physically violent when the employee tried to remove passengers from a boat who were on board without permission. Hill and his agent Drew Rosenhaus were among the participants on a fishing trip that day, which took place over Father's Day weekend.

Now, however, per ESPN reporter Adam Schefter, all has been settled with a succinct statement attached.

Hill, who was traded to the Miami Dolphins just over a year ago by the Chiefs in exchange for five draft choices, enjoyed a banner year last year in his first season in south Florida. He set career highs in yardage with 1,710 and catches with 119, and he was invited to his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl.

While Hill and his representatives can breathe easier on the legal front, the NFL has made no announcement on the matter either way, so it remains to be seen if there's going to be any repercussions from the league office in response to a violation of the personal conduct policy.
