A Kelley Fishing Fleet employee claimed Hill attacked him during a dispute with an open hand. A 17-second film that was posted by Fox Sports 640 South Florida's Andy Slater appeared to show the four-time All-Pro swinging at a man as he was being led away from the scene.
Two women from Hill's group had entered one of the charter boats without permission, the employee reported to the authorities. He told the women to leave, and that's when the argument started.
Authorities decided not to press charges against Hill, and in July he settled with the worker in an unknown amount. The NFL was still looking at the situation, though.
On July 26, Mike McDaniel, the head coach of the Dolphins, told reporters he didn't want to jump to any conclusions concerning Hill but did admit that "everybody's disappointed in what we're talking about."
Hill stated the following day that he "just can't make boneheaded mistakes like that."
Now that he knows the event won't cost him any time during the 2023 NFL season, he can sleep soundly. The 29-year-old hopes to improve on his outstanding 2022 season, during which he caught 119 receptions for 1,710 yards and seven touchdowns.
