Colin Kaepernick and others being investigated for assault


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are being investigated by Miami police for an incident at a hotel earlier this month involving a woman.

The investigation centers around a sexual assault but thus far no charges have been filed according to a spokesperson for the Miami Police Department.

According to an incident report the incident took place on April 1 at the Viceroy hotel in downtown Miami. Kaepernick along with Ricardo Lockette, a Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, and Quinton Patton, a 49ers receiver, are listed as being involved.

According to the report, the alleged victim went to Lockette’s apartment at the Viceroy where Kaepernick and Patton were watching a basketball game. The woman told police she knows Kaepernick and that they have had a “sexual relationship.”

USA Today reports that:

The woman said she “mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots.” She was then instructed by the men to ” ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.” Later she said she started to feel light headed and went to a bedroom to lie down.

“Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her,” according to the report. “Mr. Kaepernick started to undress her. She got completely naked. Mr. Kaepernick told her that he was going to be right back and left the bedroom. They did not have sex.”

Kaepernick did not return and the victim last remembers seeing Patton and Lockette looking into her room. She later awoke in a hospital bed.

The 49ers released the following statement from general manager Trent Baalke saying, “The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
