For what it’s worth ...
According to TMZ (And, yes, we’re citing TMZ, which I think used to require some sort of admission of the website’s questionable validity, but now can pretty much just shrugged of as: “Yeah, we’re citing TMZ here. You (the reader) know exactly what that means.” - star 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for sexual assault in Miami. Sources tell the site that the alleged incident went down at the Viceroy Hotel “earlier this month,” and that the police investigation is in its “beginning stages.”
No charges have been filed, and no description of what allegedly took place is provided. (See update below.)
TMZ does note, however, that “Kaepernick doesn’t appear to be fazed by the allegations -- he was out partying at a Miami nightclub early Sunday morning with a smile on his face.”
For what it’s worth.
UPDATE: TMZ posted more details of the alleged assault Thursday, which also name Seahawks wide reciever Ricardo Lockette.
According to the report, issued by the Miami PD, the woman claims she went to the apartment of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette ... to hang out with him, Kaepernick and 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton.
The woman told police, around 9pm that night she mixed some drinks for the guys and gave them shots, but they told her that “in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”
The woman says she felt lightheaded and went to the bedroom to lie down. She claims Kaepernick “came up behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her.”
“She advised they were kissing (mouth) and Mr Kaepernick started to undressed [sic] 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.”
The woman told cops that while she was still naked in bed, Patton and Lockette opened the door and “peeked” inside. She says she told them to get out ... but she can’t remember anything after that.
The woman later woke up in a hospital bed ... but says she doesn’t remember how she got there or who took her there.
The woman also claims she has had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past.
UPDATE: The San Jose Mercury News got a hold of a Miami Police spokesperson, who told the paper that TMZ took the police report “out of context.
“There’s no evidence of a crime or a sexual assault,” the spokesperson told the paper. “This report is simply an incident report taken at the woman’s request.”
