49ers’ Colin Kaepernick Being Investigated For Possible Sexual Assault
According to USA Today, San Francisco 49ers' quarterback, Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are reportedly being invested by Miami police regarding an incident that happened in a hotel earlier this month. The investigation was originally reported by TMZ is for sexual assault, but the Miami Police Department representative wanted to make clear that the investigation is for an allegation and no charges have been filed. According to an incident report the alleged incident took place on April 1 at the Viceroy hotel in downtown Miami. Ricardo Lockette, a Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, and Quinton Patton, a 49ers receiver, are listed as the other NFL players involved in the alleged event. According to the report obtained by USA Today Sports:
the alleged victim went to Lockette's apartment at the Viceroy where Kaepernick and Patton were watching a basketball game. The woman told police she knows Kaepernick and that they have had a "sexual relationship."The woman said she "mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots." She was then instructed by the men to " 'hit' the bong which contained marijuana." Later she said she started to feel light headed and went to a bedroom to lie down."Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her," according to the report. "Mr. Kaepernick started to undress 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."Patton and Lockette looked in the room where the alleged victim said: "What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out." The alleged victim told police she does not remember anything after that, and that she woke up in a hospital bed, not aware of how she got there.
The 49ers organization released a statement saying,
"The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts."
These types of stories get old real quick. When you are in a high profile position and are deemed a "celebrity" you have to be much more cautious than the average person, man or woman. At this point, I really don't think there is anything these athletes, or celebrities, can hear that will make them change their ways or look at things differently.
