Video Shows NFL Star Swatting At Man
… During Boat Altercation

Video from Tyreek Hill‘s June run-in with a fishing boat employee has finally surfaced … and it shows the NFL star did take a swipe at the man during their altercation.
The surveillance footage, obtained Wednesday by Andy Slater, was captured in a Miami marina at around 6:45 p.m. on June 18 … and you can see Hill is clearly upset with the boat company worker.
The Miami Dolphins wideout — wearing a light grey shirt, shorts, and white shoes — is being held back from the man … when he swats at the guy’s head/neck area. The man then recoils as if he’d been hit — before Hill is ushered away from the scene.
But, the video shows Hill then seemingly attempting to go after the guy again … however, thankfully, some of the football player’s friends hold him back.
Police did investigate it all … but prosecutors said on Wednesday no charges would be filed — saying in a statement to TMZ Sports, “The individual who would have been termed a victim if there had been a filed case, came into the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, met with Assistant State Attorney Robert Fiallo and signed a notarized Non-Prosecution Form indicating that he did not wish to press criminal charges.”

“On the form, he also indicated that no threats, promises, or coercion played a part in his decision.”
As for any civil matters, reps for Hill and the alleged victim told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday they’d reached a settlement.
For Hill’s part, he spoke briefly about the situation with media members on Wednesday … saying, “I just can’t make bonehead mistakes like that.”
The NFL, meanwhile, has not yet announced if it will punish Hill.
