It was reported that 49er star Colin Kaepernick was under investigation over an April 1st “incident” that happened between him, two other NFL player and an unidentified woman. According to a police report, the woman, Kaepernick and the other football players were hanging out in a Miami apartment drinking, and told that she had to take a hit off a bong before they would take any of her shots and next woke up in a hospital with not a clue of how she got there. However, Miami police have come forward and stated that there was no evidence that a sexual assault took place or a crime and TMZ took the report out of context.
“There’s no evidence of a crime or a sexual assault,” Miami Police spokesman Rene Pimental said. “This report is simply an incident report taken at the woman’s request. … there are no specific allegations of wrongdoing.”
Kaepernick also released a statement via twitter
