San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick garnered a great deal of negative attention last month when word got out that the Miami police were investigating an "incident" that occurred in his Miami hotel suite.
In the weeks that followed, a different picture started to emerge, and the latest 911 calls released by Miami police indicate that the original backlash against Kaepernick was premature.
The first call, reportedly made by Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette, indicates that the woman at the center of the incident was asked to leave multiple times:
“I want to report there’s a young lady in my friend’s bed," the individual believed to be Lockette told police. “He’s not here. She’s going to wait in his bed. She’s not leaving. We asked her to leave. We told her he won’t be here tonight. She said she’s not leaving until she sees him.”
The 911 operator then asked if the woman was alright.
Caller: “She actually took her clothes off and layed in the bed,”
Operator: “So she’s fully naked on the bed?”
Operator: “So she’s waiting for her boyfriend? Is that it?”
Caller: “He’s not her boyfriend. (Inaudible.) But he’s not here so she went and got in bed naked, and said she’s staying there until he got back.”
The woman filed the incident report that set off the story after she was removed by Miami Fire Rescue and taken to the hospital.
The second 911 call released came from a hotel security guard, who backed up the story given by the first caller.
Caller: “[when I asked her what her name was]...she said her name was Jesus”
Operator: [is she violent?]
Caller: "...she’s just crying."
The incident is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed. Kaepernick defended his conduct in a statement released last month, saying that sometimes, "you have to deal with someone who makes things up."
