It seems like there’s not a week that goes by anymore where a professional athlete isn’t linked to a crime of some sort. All too often, it’s a sexual crime.
The speedy QB is currently being investigated by police for a possible sexual assault. SI is reporting on a confirmed Miami Police report that the alleged incident took place at a Miami hotel last month. They’re also reporting that Kaepernick was back at the same hotel this past weekend, and that he was in good spirits.
Unfortunately in these cases, it always seems to boil down to a case of he said-she said. The 49ers, and obviously Kaepernick, are hoping things don’t even get to that level. At this time there have been no charges filed against the QB.
Here’s the official statement from the team: “The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
So now we’ll begin the waiting game. More details and questions are sure to arise in the near future. Is he lying? Is she lying? Will there ever be any charges filed? No one knows the answers at this point.
If you’re a Niners fan, you’re hoping like heck that these allegations are false. At the same time, you have to understand that if Kaepernick did commit a crime, that he must pay.
