Colin Kaepernick Named In ‘Suspicious Incident’ In Miami
MIAMI (KPIX/CBS13) – San Francisco 49ers star Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for a “suspicious incident” at a hotel in Miami, according to numerous reports.
The investigation was first reported by TMZ.com, who are calling the incident a possible sexual assault. Kaepernick has not been hit with any charges, but TMZ reports that the investigation is only in its beginning stages.
According to the Miami Police incident report obtained by KPIX, Kaepernick and two other NFL players — Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette and 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton — were named in a “suspicious incident” that occurred on April 1 in the Brickell area of Miami.
In the report, which was filed two days after the incident, a woman tells police that she went to visit an apartment with Lockette. Kaepernick and Patton were also at the apartment. The woman reports that, after mixing some drinks, the men goaded her to take a hit of marijuana from a bong. As the night continued, the woman says she started to feel light-headed, so she went to a bedroom to lie down. She says Kaepernick entered the bedroom and started to kiss her.
Police note that the woman and Kaepernick did not have sex, but she was naked on the bed. Kaepernick left the bedroom and Patton and Lockette peeked inside, she says. The woman noticed that the two were peeking and told them to get out. Patton and Lockette then closed the door and left, she says.
Later, the woman says she woke up in a hospital bed, not knowing how she got there or who took her. She tells police that she doesn’t remember anything after Patton and Lockette left.
Kaepernick and the woman have had a sexual relationship in the past, she tells police.
Trent Baalke, 49ers General Manager, released a statement to TMZ, saying: “The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
