49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated in connection with what Miami police are calling a "suspicious incident" that allegedly occurred at an apartment rented by Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette earlier this month.
Kaepernick issued a statement via Twitter Friday morning:
(1/3) The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I've seen are completely wrong. They make things up about me that never happened.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) April 11, 2014
(2/3) 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.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) April 11, 2014
(3/3) I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) April 11, 2014
According to an incident report, a woman met Kaepernick, Lockette, and Quinton Patton, a wide receiver for the 49ers, at the apartment, made them drinks and served them shots, then was told to "hit" a bong that contained marijuana.
The report says the woman went to a bedroom where she was later joined by Kaepernick. He left the room, not having sex, the woman said in the report. She reported Patton and Lockette peeked inside the room and she told them to get out.
Police say the woman reports waking up in the hospital the next day with no memory of what happened after yelling at Patton and Lockette.
Kaepernick, Lockette, and Patton have not been charged with anything.
