Report: Colin Kaepernick Under Investigation For Sexual Assault

UPDATE 10:37 AM PST: The Sacramento Bee has corrected some information from TMZ's report, providing new details into the incident.

Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette are also involved, according to the Bee:

According to the report, the incident occurred April 1 when a woman went to Lockette's apartment in Miami at 9 p.m. Kaepernick and Patton were there, and the woman made drinks and served shots to the players. She was also told "to drink the shots she had to 'hit' the bong which contained marijuana," the report said.


The report continues to say that the woman felt light headed and went to a bedroom where she was later joined by Kaepernick, 26, with whom she had a sexual relationship in the past. Kaepernick then left the bedroom. The two did not have sex, she said in the report. The report says that Patton, 23, and Lockette, 27, peeked inside the bedroom and that the woman yelled at them to get out.


According to the report, the woman does not remember anything about the night after that. She woke up in a hospital bed the following morning not knowing how she got there. The woman, whose name is redacted, reported the incident to police on April 3.

Original article:

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is reportedly under investigation for sexual assault.

Kaepernick hasn't been charged with anything, but TMZ reports that police are investigating an incident that's alleged to have occurred at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month.

Neither Kaepernick or his agent had any comment on the story, and the investigation is still at a very early stage. We'd imagine that more information will come out over the next few days.

The 49ers issued a formal response, with GM Trent Baalke telling TMZ that "The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
