Miami police said Thursday that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are linked to an investigation involving a woman who said she woke up in a hospital after drinking with the players, but said none of the players had been arrested or charged with any crime.

The April 1 incident involved a woman with whom Kaepernick reportedly had a previous sexual relationship and happened at the Miami apartment of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, according to a four-page police report. The woman filed the report with Miami police on the evening of April 3.

None of the players have been questioned, arrested or charged with any crime, Miami police spokesman Rene Pimental said Thursday.

"There's no evidence of a crime or a sexual assault," Pimental said. "This report is simply an incident report taken at the woman's request. ... there are no specific allegations of wrongdoing,"

The incident was initially reported by online celebrity news site TMZ as a sexual assault, but Pimental said the site "took the report out of context."

Team officials released a brief statement acknowledging media reports about the incident, but refused any further comment.

"The 49ers organization is aware of a report regarding Colin Kaepernick and are gathering facts," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said Thursday.

Kaepernick was scheduled to attend teammate Anquan Boldin's "Q-Fest" charity function in Palm Beach Gardens. The even runs Thursday through Saturday.

Coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters at the Q-Fest event that he hasn't spoken to Kaepernick since details of the alleged incident surfaced earlier Thursday. "I'm aware (of the incident), but don't have anything else that I know anything about," Harbaugh told an ESPN radio affiliate.

Kaepernick's agent, Scott Smith, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

The woman, whose name was redacted in the report, told detectives she went to Lockette's apartment at the Viceroy Miami -- a luxury resort on Brickell Avenue -- around 9 p.m. April 1 to mingle with Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton and that she "mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots."

The players allegedly told her that, in order to drink with them, she needed to smoke marijuana.

The woman said the group then watched a basketball game; shortly after, she started to feel lightheaded so she went to a bedroom to rest. She said Kaepernick, with whom she had a previous sexual relationship, came to the room and kissed her and began to undress her, according to the police report. She told police that they did not have sex that night.

Kaepernick then reportedly left her naked in the bedroom. Shortly after, Patton and Lockette opened the door and peeked inside, the report states. She told them "What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out!" The men then left.

The woman told detectives she woke up an unspecified amount of time later in a hospital, not knowing how she arrived there.

The report did not detail why she was in the hospital. Police said federal medical privacy laws prohibited them from releasing the name of the hospital, what the woman was treated for and whether hospital workers had performed a sexual assault examinationd.

Lockette, 27, shared a house with Kaepernick before being cut by the 49ers in last year's training camp. Lockette then signed with the Seattle Seahawks and played on their Super Bowl-winning team.

Patton, 23, is entering his second season with the 49ers, having had his rookie year hindered by hand and foot injuries. He has been working out with 26-year-old Kaepernick this offseason.

Kaepernick has been training the past two months at Bommarito Performance Systems in North Miami Beach, where 49ers running back Frank Gore often trains in the offseason. Other NFL players, including 49ers linebacker Nick Moody, have also been training at the facility during the offseason.

Coming off his first full season as the 49ers' starting quarterback, Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is set to make $973,766 in base salary. However, the 49ers and Kaepernick's representatives began talks two months ago on a multiyear extension that likely would make Kaepernick one of the NFL's best-paid quarterbacks.

Kaepernick has rocketed to stardom in 1½ seasons, since assuming arguably the NFL's most decorated quarterback throne, where Joe Montana and Steve Young produced Super Bowl wins en route to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

A 2011 second-round draft pick out of Nevada, Kaepernick is 17-6 as a regular-season starter and 2-1 in each of the past two postseasons.

He burst on the national scene upon replacing Alex Smith midway through 2012, dominating in his starting debut against the Chicago Bears and culminating that season with a near-comeback in Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens. Last season, Kaepernick endured growing pains before finishing strong, highlighted by playoff wins at Green Bay and Carolina before a NFC Championship game loss at Seattle.

The NFL did not immediately return requests for comment, but marijuana is on the league's list of banned substances.

The Miami investigation comes on the heels of a string of off-field troubles that have plagued the 49ers over the past two years.

Linebacker Aldon Smith faces weapons charges connected to a June 2012 party at his San Jose home that ended with him being stabbed in the arm and two partygoers wounded by gunfire. This past September, he was arrested on suspicion of DUI after he hit a tree in an upscale east hills neighborhood; he left the team a short time later and entered a counseling and rehabilitation program before returning to the team in late October.

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks avoided criminal charges after he reportedly hit teammate Lamar Divens in the face of with a beer bottle after night of club-hopping last June.

Offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore was arrested in January in his hometown of Kingsport, Tenn., and charged with public intoxication.

Most recently, cornerback Chris Culliver was arrested on March 28 in San Jose after police said he struck a bicyclist and fled the scene of the crash. He also was found to be in possession of brass knuckles.

Culliver is scheduled to be back in a San Jose courtroom Friday for an arraignment hearing on a felony weapons charge and two misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run.
