[Update: the full incident report can be found at the bottom of the page]

According to the Miami police department's report, the alleged incident took place at Lockette's apartment at 9:00 p.m. on April 1. Patton and Kaepernick were also present in the apartment. Here is part of the report's narrative:

They talked for a while and she mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots. Advised that they told her that in order to drink the shots she had to "hit" the bong which contained marijuana.

They sat down, talked, and watched the basketball game. She started to feel light headed and went to a bedroom to lie down. [Redacted] took off her jacket and jewelry. Mr. Kaepernick came 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. [Redacted] advised that she was in bed naked and Mr. Patton and Mr. Lockette opened the door and "peeked" inside. She told them "what are you doing? Where is Colin?"; "get out!" They closed the door and left. She cannot remember anything after that.

[Redacted] woke up in a hospital bed and doesn't remember how she got there or who transported her to the hospital. [Redacted] advised that she has had a sexual relationship with Mr. Kaepernick in the past.


TMZ first broke the news that an investigation was underway, claiming that a source within the Miami police department told them that Kaepernick was being investigated in connection with an alleged sexual assault that took place at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami.

The Sacramento Bee has since provided more details, indicating that Patton and Lockette are also part of the investigation, and that TMZ was wrong about the location and nature of the incident [Update: it seems that there are in fact residential condos at the Viceroy Hotel].


The 49ers released the following statement:
