San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated by Miami police for a possible sexual assault at a hotel earlier this month.

Miami Police Department public information officer Rene Pimentel confirmed the investigation is for sexual assault to USA TODAY Sports on Thursday. The investigation was originally reported by TMZ.

“There are no charges, definitely not. There is an investigation regarding an allegation,” Pimentel told USA TODAY Sports.

According to an incident report obtained by USA TODAY Sports, the alleged incident took place April 1 at the Viceroy hotel in downtown Miami. Ricardo Lockette, a Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, and Quinton Patton, a 49ers receiver, are listed as “persons involved.”

According to the report, the alleged victim went to Lockette’s apartment at the Viceroy where Kaepernick and Patton were watching a basketball game. The woman “mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots,” according to the report.

The woman told police she was instructed by the men to “‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”

Later she said she started to feel light headed and went to a bedroom to lie down.

“Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her,” according to the report. “Mr. Kaepernick started to undress her. She got completely naked. Mr. Kaepernick told her that he was going to be right back and left the bedroom. They did not have sex.”

Patton and Lockette looked in the room where the alleged victim said: “What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out.”

The alleged victim told police she does not remember anything after that, and that she woke up in a hospital bed, not aware of how she got there. The woman told police she has had a “sexual relationship” with Kaepernick in the past.

The 49ers confirmed they are also looking into the allegation.

“The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts,” general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement.
