MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. — Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill is being investigated in an alleged assault that occurred last weekend in Miami-Dade County, police said.

The alleged assault took place Sunday, Miami-Dade police Detective Angel Rodriguez confirmed Tuesday in an email to WPTV.

Rodriguez didn't provide any further information.

However, WPLG reported that Hill got into a "disagreement" with an employee of a charter company at Haulover Park marina that resulted in Hill hitting the man.

Hill is entering his second season with the Dolphins after he was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs. The seven-time Pro Bowl player set Miami's single-season record for receptions (119) and receiving yards (1,710).

The alleged assault took place one day before Hill's football camp in Boca Raton.
