49ers Star Colin Kaepernick Named In Possible Sexual Assault Investigation
Update 4:24 p.m.: A rape kit was administered to the woman at the center of the ‘suspicious incident’ involving 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, TMZ reports. The results of that kit, however, have not been disclosed.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette are currently being investigated for Miami SVU regarding a possible sexual assault that may have occurred earlier this month, TMZ reports.
According to a report issued by the Miami Police Department, a woman says that while hanging out with Kaepernick, Patton and Lockette at Lockette’s apartment on Apr. 1, she mixed drinks for the professional athletes and served them shots. Before she was able to drink, she says she was told by the guys that “in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”
After doing so, the woman says that she began to feel light-headed and went to lie down. Shortly after, the woman says Kaepernick “came up behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her.” The report continues:
“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.”
Still lying naked in bed, the woman told investigators that Lockette and Patton “peeked inside” of the room. She says that she told them to get out, but can’t remember anything after that point. The woman later woke up in a hospital room, but says that she can’t remember how she got there.
Cops described the accusations as a “suspicious incident” and have forwarded the case to SVU. The woman alleges that she has had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past.
“The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts,” said the team’s general manager Trent Baalke.
So far, no charges have been filed against Kaepernick, Patton or Lockette.
