MIAMI (KGO) — The Miami Police Department is backtracking about the suspicious incident involving Colin Kaepernick.
The phones at the Miami Police Department are ringing off the hook Thursday. And, everyone wants to know more about what happened at the Viceroy Hotel in downtown Miami.
The incident involves 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Seattle Seahawks player Ricardo Lockette and 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton. It happened on April 1.
The report states that the woman who filed the complaint went to visit Lockette at an apartment at the Viceroy Hotel. Kaepernick and Patton were already there. The report does not say that a crime was committed.
It says the woman mixed some drinks and gave the three players some shots of alcohol. She claims they then told her that in order to drink the shots she had to hit a bong which contained marijuana.
They continued watching a basketball game. But, the woman says she went to the bedroom because she felt light headed. Kaepernick followed her and they started kissing. The report says they did not have sex.
The alleged victim says she can’t remember anything after that. And, she woke up in a hospital bed without knowing how she got there or who transported her.
Thursday, the team issued this statement: “The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
By midday, fans were all over the story and were not afraid to give their opinion.
“It’s not true, that lady is probably just going after his money,” said one fan.
The woman who filed the report did so two days later. Miami police would not say if the three players have been questioned.
