Last month, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick found himself embroiled in legal struggle after allegations that he and fellow NFL players were pegged in a sexual assault incident. Now that 911 calls from that night in Miami have been released, Kaepernick says he’s “glad” that details are beginning to emerge that will vindicate him.
Kaepernick took to Twitter, as he had before, and wrote the following: “On 911 calls, I’m glad the truth is getting out. Info that came out earlier was totally wrong. I look forward to this matter being resolved.”
TMZ Sports obtained the 911 calls of the two days ago, which reveal that a man who is assumed to be a security person talking to the dispatch about an unnamed naked woman inside the Viceroy Hotel. A second caller, identified as Seattle Seahawks player Ricardo Lockette and one of the listed suspects in the case, said that the woman was waiting on someone and refused to leave. That someone is largely assumed to be Kaepernick. The woman says she passed out and woke up in a hospital much later.
There have not been any charges regarding the matter, and a local news station has learned that preliminary testing found no DNA evidence at the scene although the woman claimed Kaepernick had his way with her after a night of boozing and pot-smoking. Without any DNA linking the men to the alleged crime, there may be little prosecutors can do to bring charges.
Kaepernick’s teammate, Quinton Patton, is also one of the named suspects in the case. Hit the jump to see the tweet.
