Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, is being investigated for a possible sexual assault in Miami, law enforcement sources tell TMZ. No charges have been filed against Kaepernick, TMZ notes. The alleged incident took place at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami “earlier this month.” No other details are available.
Already one of the best young QBs in the NFL, Kaepernick is up for a possible contract extension this summer. In the last two seasons, he’s guided the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl and the NFC Championship game. The 49ers lost both games in the final minute.
[UPDATE: The 49ers just released a statement saying they are “in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”]
[UPDATE II: The Miami PD Report includes woman claiming she did shots and bong hits with Kaepernick and two other NFL players, woke up in hospital bed.]
