49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated in connection with what the Miami Police Department is calling a “suspicious incident” that allegedly occurred earlier this month at an apartment rented by Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, according to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee.

Barrows reports that no charges have been filed and that the investigation is in its early stages. Earlier Thursday, the website TMZ.com reported that Kaepernick was being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, but according to Barrows, the Miami Police incident report makes no mention of sexual assault.

Quinton Patton, a wide receiver for the 49ers, was also present at the apartment on the night in question, which is April 1. According to the report, a woman met Kaepernick, Lockette and Patton at the apartment, made them drinks and served them shots, then was told to “hit” a bong that contained marijuana.

From The Sacramento Bee:

The report continues to say that the woman felt light headed and went to a bedroom where she was later joined by Kaepernick, 26, with whom she had a sexual relationship in the past. Kaepernick then left the bedroom. The two did not have sex, she said in the report. The report says that Patton, 23, and Lockette, 27, peeked inside the bedroom and that the woman yelled at them to get out.

According to the report, the woman does not remember anything about the night after that. She woke up in a hospital bed the following morning not knowing how she got there. The woman, whose name is redacted, reported the incident to police on April 3.

Both the Seahawks and 49ers have released separate statements stating they’re aware of the investigation.

Signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent in 2011, Lockette rejoined the Seahawks midway through last season after spending the 2012 regular season and 2013 preseason with the 49ers. He is close friends with Kaepernick, with whom he lived during his time with San Francisco. Lockette appeared in 11 games last season – including the playoffs – serving as Seattle’s fourth receiver and playing on special teams. He is signed through 2014.

Kaepernick is coming off his first full season as the 49ers’ starter. While he has a year remaining on his rookie contract, he is eligible for a contract extension that some believe could approach $20 million per season.
