Members of Miami Fire Rescue transported a woman at the center of an investigation involving 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and 49ers receiver Quinton Patton from their hotel suite to a hospital, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported Friday.

The woman claims to have blacked out after drinking with the players on April 1, and woke up in a hospital room with no recollection of how she ended up there.

“At 12:32 (a.m.), Miami Fire Rescue was dispatched to the Viceroy (hotel) and transported a 25-year-old female from the Viceroy to the Jackson Memorial Hospital emergency room,” Miami Fire Lt. Ignatius Carroll told The Miami Herald.

The police department is only authorized to release the incident report and would not answer questions pertaining to the case, including who summoned emergency personnel to the hotel suite or why the woman was admitted to a hospital.

TMZ.com reported Thursday that Kaepernick was being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, though the incident report does not include any mentions of sexual assault. Kaepernick responded to the allegations via Twitter Friday.

“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,” Kaepernick wrote. “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 Miami Police Department’s Special Victims Unit, which investigates sexual battery and other serious crimes, is handling the case.
Kaepernick, Patton and Lockette have not been interviewed by police, according to Barrows.
