San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was named in a “suspicious incident” report filed last week, has not been questioned by the Miami Police Department.
“There’s nothing new right now that we have to report,” a Miami police spokesperson told CSNBayArea.com on Friday. “Everything is status quo as of yesterday.”
Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette were named in the report that detailed a “suspicious incident” involving a woman who told police she woke up in a hospital and did not know how she got there.
In the report, the woman told investigators she had a previous sexual relationship with Kaepernick but did not have sex on the night in question. The alleged incident occurred at a Miami luxury rental on April 1. Two days later, she reported the “suspicious incident” and was interviewed by two Miami detectives.
She told the detectives she mixed some drinks for the three men. The men told her in order to drink the shots, she had to “hit” the bong, which contained marijuana, she said, according to the report. Afterward, she told police, she felt light-headed and went to the bedroom. She told police, she does not remember anything that happened shortly thereafter and woke up in the hospital.
On Friday, Kaepernick issued his first public comment, saying, “I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up.”
Miami Police said the initial TMZ report that stated Kaepernick was being investigated for alleged “sexual assault" was taken out of context.
"There's no evidence of a crime or a sexual assault," Miami Police spokesman Rene Pimental told the Bay Area News Group. "This report is simply an incident report taken at the woman's request."
Kaepernick, Patton and Lockette have not been interviewed, but the investigation is continuing, according to the Miami PD.
