Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill won't face any discipline from the NFL for an altercation that occurred at a Florida marina in June, per multiple reports on Thursday.

Hill had a "disagreement” with a charter company employee and hit him, according to WPLG news station. The 29-year-old reportedly told employees, “I can buy you and the boat,” and, “I’m No. 10 with the Miami Dolphins."

The incident happened at Haulover Park, a Miami beachfront area. The Miami-Dade Police Department investigated and criminal charges were never filed.

Hill reached an undisclosed settlement with the worker in July.

"The parties to the incident which occurred on June 18th, 2023, at the Haulover Marina involving Tyreek Hill have resolved their differences," Evan Feldman, the attorney for an employee of Kelley Fleet Inc., and Julius Collins, the attorney for Hill, said in a statement, via ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The league examined the incident for cause for discipline under the personal conduct policy. During that time, Hill was asked if he was concerned about a suspension:

“No,” Hill said. “When I’m able to come here and play ball, I get a chance to get away from all of that at the end of the day. That’s the thing about football. God has blessed me to be able to perform and do what I do, and I’m blessed and grateful for that. I just can’t make boneheaded mistakes like that.”

Hill missed a couple of Dolphins practices with excused absences leading up to the news, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. On Thursday, he was reportedly seen in the building and locker room.

Now that the league has made a decision, Hill can focus on the start of the regular season. The Dolphins are set to visit the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1, which will take place Sept. 10 at 4:25 p.m. ET.
