Police: Seahawks’ Ricardo Lockette Allegedly Involved In ‘Kaepernick Incident’
(1090 The Fan) — Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and San Francisco 49ers teammates Colin Kaepernick and Quinton Patton are being investigated in connection with an alleged “suspicious incident” in Miami earlier this month.
The Seahawks have released a statement saying, “We are aware of the situation, monitoring it closely and will not have any further comment at this time.”
“While cops only described the situation as a “suspicious incident” — it’s clear they are investigating an alleged sex crime, due to the fact the case was referred to the Special Victim’s Office, which handles sex crimes,” wrote TMZ, who first reported the incident was being investigated.
The woman reported drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana, then feeling light-headed and going to a bedroom to lie down.
The woman said Kaepernick, with whom she had a previous sexual relationship, came in and started kissing and undressing her, then “told her that he was going to be right back and left the bedroom,” the report states.
The report states that the woman remained in bed naked and Patton and Lockette allegedly “peeked” inside, prompting her to say, “What are you doing? Where is Colin?”
The woman said she can’t remember anything after that and woke up in a hospital bed. She said she does not know how she got to the hospital, according to the police report.
49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement that the team is “aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
