To no one’s surprise, Colin Kaepernick won’t be charged in an incident with a strange woman and two other NFL players. In April a woman came to an apartment where Colin Kaepernick, Ricardo Lockette, a Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, and Quinton Patton, a 49ers receiver were hanging out. The woman wouldn’t leave, got naked in a bedroom and then said she couldn’t remember how she woke up in the hospital. While speculation loomed, it was a phone call made by Lockette reporting that the woman refused to leave that saved the day.
Actually charges were never filed. It was simply a complaint being investigated.
“The key issue to really clarify, because a lot of people have been screwing this up are talking about charges being dropped. That’s untrue,” Ed Griffith, public information officer for the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s office, confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Thursday.
“Charges were never filed. The woman came to the cops and said she may have been sexually assaulted. So that was viewed as a complaint. She made a complaint and there was basically no evidence that there was a sexual assault. The complaint was investigated and found to be unfounded.”
The truth prevailed, but not after much speculation and presumed guilt. We should really stick to “innocent until proven guilty”. This situation underscores that mantra.
Now that the cloud of suspcion is removed, the 49ers quarterback can fully enjoy his $126 million.
No that his has been dropped and these men have been under public scrutiny, should the police release the woman’s name? What do you think?
