NFL News: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Under Investigation

The San Francisco 49ers are a great team that has a good chance to win the Super Bowl every season mostly due to the solid play of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. However there is a dark cloud over the franchise as one of their best players and the future of the franchise is under investigation for a very serious incident.

ESPN has reported that the Miami Police department is looking into an incident involving the flashy quarterback and two other NFL players. Police, contacted on Thursday, confirmed that there is an investigation but would not describe or categorize the exact nature of what they are looking into. No arrests have been made, and no charges have been filed. According to an incident report filed with Miami police on Friday, an unnamed woman said she had an encounter with Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette on April 1 at the Viceroy in downtown Miami. The woman told police she spent time with the three players, drinking and smoking marijuana in Lockette’s apartment and eventually ending up in a bedroom with Kaepernick. This is very bad news if this incident turns into a criminal matter that could send these players away for a period of time.

The details of the report are starting to leak out. According to the report, the woman told police she and Kaepernick undressed but did not have sex, and that Kaepernick eventually left the room. The woman also told police, according to the report, that Patton and Lockette later opened the door and “peeked” into the room but closed it and left after the woman told them to get out. She told police she could not remember anything after that. TMZ.com reported earlier Thursday that Kaepernick is being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, citing law enforcement sources. Miami Police Department public information officer Rene Pimentel later told the Mercury News that the website “took the report out of context.” It is never a good thing if TMZ is looking into an NFL player.

This story is ever evolving and this is far from the end, but all eyes will now be on the 49ers. The 49ers released the following statement from General Manager Trent Baalke: “The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.” The bottom line is that all 49ers fans will be holding their collective breaths as they wait to hear the results of this investigation. The 49ers are currently one of the favorites to hoist the Lombardi trophy next season, but that will all change if Kaepernick is not under center this season.
