Star San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter Friday to refute media reports that police consider him a suspect in a potential sexual assault incident.
“The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I’ve seen are completely wrong,” Kaepernick tweeted. “They make things up about me that never happened.”
The Miami Police Department released an incident report Thursday which stated they were investigating Kaepernick’s potential involvement in a case wherein a woman is alleging she did drugs and drank with the star athlete before he left her in a room naked. The woman says the last thing she remembers before waking up in an area hospital is two NFL players peeking into her room and then leaving. The woman said she could not remember how she got to the hospital.
Other media outlets reported Kaepernick was being accused of sexual assault, though the police report didn’t use that term. Kaepernick’s tweets didn’t refer explicitly to rumors of sexual assault, but he claimed reports published in several publications were false and thanked his fans for supporting him, promising that their “faith is not misplaced.”
Two other NFL players also named in the report include Kaepernick teammate Quinton Patton and Ricado Lockette of the Seattle Seahawks.
