Miami police are looking into what they termed a "suspicious incident" in Miami involving 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette, who once played for the 49ers and is a close friend of Kaepernick's. Police cautioned that the investigation is in its early stages and that no charges have been filed. In fact, the incident report makes no mention that a crime has occurred.

According to the report, the incident occurred April 1 when a woman went to Lockette's apartment at 485 Brickell Ave. in Miami at 9 p.m. Lockette, Kaepernick and Patton were there, and the woman made drinks and served shots to the players. She was also told that in order "to drink the shots she had to 'hit' the bong which contained marijuana," the report said.

The group then watched a basketball game on television. 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, "What are you doing? Where is Colin? 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.

The 49ers released a statement from general manager Trent Baalke: "The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts."

Kaepernick last year trained with Lockette in the Atlanta area and they lived together in Santa Clara until Lockette was released. They are training in South Florida this year. The 49ers and Kaepernick currently are negotiating a multi-year contract extension that, if completed, will make Kaepernick the highest-paid 49er and one of the highest paid players in the league.

Kaepernick and Patton were scheduled to be part of a large contingent of 49ers on hand for teammate Anquan Boldin's "Q Fest" festivities in South Florida this weekend that benefit his home town of Pahokee, Fla. Head coach Jim Harbaugh also is scheduled to attend. Also scheduled to attend -- receiver Michael Crabtree, who was interviewed in connection to an alleged sexual assault in San Francisco early in 2013. Charges never were filed in that case.
