Colin Kaepernick made his first public comments since a report Thursday revealed that the San Francisco 49ers quarterback and two other NFL players are being investigated by Miami police about an incident involving a woman at a hotel earlier this month.

The first report of the alleged incident came from the site TMZ, which stated that Kaepernick was being investigated for sexual assault. A Miami P.D. spokesperson clarified later Thursday that the investigation is for a “suspicious incident.”

Kaepernick tweeted the following Friday morning:

“(1/3) The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I’ve seen are completely wrong. They make things up about me that never happened.

“(2/3) I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up.

“(3/3) I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced.”

No charges have been filed against Kaepernick or the other two players with him at the Viceroy Hotel in downtown Miami on April 1, Ricardo Lockette, a Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, and Quinton Patton, a 49ers receiver.
