Colin Kaepernick, 49ers teammate Quinton Patton and the Seattle Seahawks' Ricardo Lockette will not be charged regarding an April incident with a woman at a Miami luxury hotel, the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office revealed Thursday.
Medical tests indicated the woman was not sexually assaulted, and there was insufficient evidence any crime was commited, according to a memo by Assistant State Attorney Laura Adams.
Kaepernick maintained his innocence throughout a Miami police investigation that lasted some two months.
"As I said from day one, I would never do the things that were made up about me," Kaepernick responded Thursday afternoon on Twitter. "I'm glad this issue is resolved. It's time for football."
The woman filed a police report indicating she was unsure how she ended up at a Miami hospital after allegedly partying with the three players and waking up naked in a bed. The woman, according to the State Attorney's memo, was incoherent when police and fire-rescue responded to 911 calls from the hotel. She had to be sedated to be taken to the hospital, where she was temporarily involuntarily committed for her own safety, the memo says.
Two weeks ago, Kaepernick reiterated he "did nothing wrong in that incident" and was willing to help "the DA close this matter."
Kaepernick, the 49ers' starting quarterback since midway through their 2012 season's Super Bowl run, signed a six-year, $126-million contract extension last week.
After Miami police released a report on what it termed a "suspicious incident" April 2, Kaepernick responded on Twitter: "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. I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced."
The prosecutor's memo says that an attorney for Kaepernick and Lockette told investigators they met the woman about a year ago in Atlanta and that she and Kaepernick had sex. The woman later told Kaepernick she was pregnant and he cut off contact with her, including changing his phone number, the memo says.
Eventually, she learned Kaepernick and Lockette would be in Miami and made arrangements to visit them, traveling by Greyhound bus. After the woman's behavior deteriorated, Kaepernick contacted a nearby friend and decided to leave the hotel.
"I'm leaving right now I'm terrified," Kaepernick texted the friend, according to the prosecutor's memo.
When Miami police arrived on the scene, officers found the woman laying naked on a bed. "Her body was moving as if she was engaged in a sex act, although there was no one else in the room," according to the memo. "When she heard the officers' voices, the complainant started screaming incoherently about Jesus and devils. At one point, the complainant took the wig off her hair and threw it at the officers."
Fire-rescue workers were called to the scene, she called them "devils" and she was sedated before being transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital after 1 a.m. on April 2.
At the hospital, doctors noted that she was "severely agitated" and appeared to be in an altered mental state, although no evidence of drugs beyond marijuana were detected in her system, Adams wrote. The woman had told police she and the three players had drinks, and that she smoked marijuana earlier in the night with Kaepernick and Lockette. A witness claimed to have heard the alleged victim state she came from Atlanta to have "three champion babies" with Kaepernick, according to the DA's memo.
The State Attorney's Office, in concluding there was no evidence that the woman was the victim of any crime, closed the case and classified it as "Exceptionally Cleared."
