Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette is being investigated along with San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton in connection with a “suspicious incident” that occurred April 1 in Miami. No charges have been filed and the investigation is in its early stages.
Update, 1:46 p.m.: The Seahawks released a statement: “We are aware of the situation, monitoring it closely and will not have any further comment at this time.”
Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that the police are using the term “suspicious incident” for what happened at Lockette’s apartment in Miami on April 1. From Barrows:
According to the report, the incident occurred April 1 when a woman went to Lockette’s apartment in Miami at 9 p.m. Kaepernick and Patton were there, and the woman made drinks and served shots to the players. She was also told “to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana,” the report said.
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.
Lockette and Kaepernick have been friends since their time together with the 49ers. They previously lived together.
