Just three months removed from his heart-breaking defeat at the hand of the Seattle Seahawks, in the NFC Championship Game, Colin Kaepernick now faces an even tougher opponent—the law. According to sources at TMZ and the Miami Police Department, the 49er’s quarterback is facing charges for sexual assault. The investigation is still in its early stages and no one has been charged yet, but this does plant an obstacle firmly in the path of proposed long term deal with his team.
According to the police report, Kaepernick was in Miami hanging out with Seahawk wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, where they were partaking in drink and smoke. The woman claims that this is where things turned a little darker.
The woman told police, around 9pm that night she mixed some drinks for the guys and gave them shots, but they told her that “in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”
The woman says she felt lightheaded and went to the bedroom to lie down. She claims Kaepernick “came up behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her.”
“She advised they were kissing (mouth) and Mr Kaepernick started to undressed [sic] 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.”
The woman told cops that while she was still naked in bed, Patton and Lockette opened the door and “peeked” inside. She says she told them to get out … but she can’t remember anything after that.
The woman later woke up in a hospital bed … but says she doesn’t remember how she got there or who took her there.
The woman also claims she has had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past.
The Police stated that it was a suspicious case, but they were going to follow the lead. There is much known at this moment, but we will update you as we learn more.
