Report: Colin Kaepernick under investigation for possible sexual assault
Law enforcement sources reportedly have informed TMZ Sports that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick presently is being investigated for a possible sexual assault that allegedly occurred earlier this month at a hotel in Miami, Fla.
Sources tell TMZ the alleged sexual assault occurred at the Viceroy Hotel. No charges have been filed as the case reportedly is only in its “beginning stages.”
TMZ reportedly reached out to both the San Francisco 49ers and Kaepernick’s agent. At the time of the published report, no response has been made.
Given the sketchy and incredibly sparse details surrounding the allegations, no assumptions should be made regarding the still developing case. That said, TMZ rarely overreaches when reporting on such potentially troubling cases such as the one allegedly involving Kaepernick. At this stage, chances are just as good that nothing will come from these potentially damning allegations and Kaepernick will be absolved of any foul play as additional details are revealed and learned.
Still, it’s never a good thing to even have reports such as these emerge for both the 49ers and Kaepernick, no matter how things turn out.
