Miami police do not believe 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was present when they responded to two 911 calls about an upset naked woman refusing to leave a downtown Miami hotel room.
But they are waiting for the Viceroy Hotel to turn over additional surveillance tape to see if they can determine whether Kaepernick had been in the suite earlier with two other players and, if so, what time he left.
Miami Police Chief Manuel Orosa said that, so far, police have not confirmed the woman’s report that Kaepernick had been among a trio of men in the hotel room on the night of April 1. She named him in a report she filed with police two days after the incident.
Police already have one surveillance tape from the Brickell-area hotel that only shows Miami Fire Rescue transporting the woman from the room just after midnight, a source familiar with the investigation said this week. The Bee has reported that the suite was Kaepernick’s.
Never miss a local story.
Last week, police confirmed that Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette, a friend and former roommate of Kaepernick, were under investigation in connection with the incident.
The woman reported that she had blacked out while naked in the hotel room after a night of drinking shots and smoking marijuana in room 4710 in the posh Viceroy. She reported that she mixed drinks for herself and the three men and that they coaxed her into smoking marijuana before she passed out.
Kaepernick lashed out at TMZ, the entertainment and gossip website, and other outlets on Twitter last week, saying he did nothing wrong. His agent Scott Smith declined to comment Friday.
No charges have been filed, but a police incident report given by the woman on April 3 shows the case is being investigated by the department’s Special Victims Unit, which looks into sex crimes.
According to police, the woman was examined and a rape kit was used to determine if she had been sexually assaulted.The results have not been made public. Police also are waiting for results of the woman’s toxicology report.
Orosa said all evidence, including surveillance tapes, will be turned over to the state attorney.
The woman, who is not named in the police report, said she had a past sexual relationship with Kaepernick. She told police that before she passed out, she and Kaepernick were kissing in a bedroom.
After she got undressed, she told police, Kaepernick left the bedroom. She said they did not have sex.
The woman said that at some point Lockette and Patton peeked into the room. She told police that she yelled at them to leave. The incident report said the woman had no recollection of anything else that happened that night until waking up in the hospital several hours later.
Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Ignatius Carroll confirmed that paramedics were called to the Viceroy at 12:32 a.m. on April 1 and transported a 25-year-old woman to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Miami police also said they expect to discuss the incident with an attorney representing the three football players in the next few days.
Police also are expected to release two 911 tapes on Monday. One tape, police say, is of a male voice asking for help to remove a woman from the hotel room who he claims refused to leave until “the player she came to see returns.”
The other 911 tape is from hotel security, police said.
Last week, The Bee reported that Lockette called 911 twice on his cell phone the evening of the incident, telling police a naked woman was on his friend’s bed and refused to leave.
CBSSports.com reported Friday that the 49ers have put a hold on contract extension talks with Kaepernick while Miami police continue its investigation.
