Is There Trouble on the Horizon For Colin Kaepernick?
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are being investigated by Miami police for an incident earlier this month at a Miami hotel according to multiple reports.
Police currently admit there is a investigation ongoing, but were not willing to go into detail on what it entails.
No arrests have been made, and no charges have been filed.
Here’s what espn.com had to say on the matter:
“According to an incident report filed with Miami police on Friday, an unnamed woman said she had an encounter with Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette on April 1 at the Viceroy hotel in downtown Miami. The woman told police she spent time with the three players, drinking and smoking marijuana in Lockette’s apartment and eventually ending up in a bedroom with Kaepernick.
According to the report, she told police both of them removed their clothes but did not have sex. Kaepernick eventually left the room. The woman also told police, according to the report, that Patton and Lockette later opened the door and “peeked” into the room but closed the door and left after the woman told them to get out. She told police she could not remember anything after that.
TMZ.com reported earlier Thursday that Kaepernick is being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, according to law enforcement sources. Those sources told TMZ that the investigation is in its “beginning stages.”
However, police would not confirm that or characterize the incident or nature of the investigation when contacted by ESPN.”
The San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke, in a statement released Thursday, said the team is aware of the report.
