San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is denying that he has any involvement in a criminal case following an incident in a Miami hotel room. TMZ reported yesterday that Kaepernick is being investigated in connection with an alleged sexual assault.
"The charges made against me in the TMZ story and other stories I've seen are completely wrong," Kaepernick tweeted yesterday. "They make things up about me that never happened."
Kaepernick didn't specify what details of the story were inaccurate, though TMZ reports that their source in the Miami police department has changed his story, downgrading the incident from a "sexual assault" to a "suspicious incident."
Kaepernick followed up his earlier tweet by saying, "I want to thank all the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced."
The NFL star seems unconcerned with the allegations against him and has been spotted partying at various nightclubs several times since the investigation began.
Specifics about the incident remain scarce but according to TMZ, a woman claims she was naked in a bed with Kaepernick smoking marijuana and she later awoke in a hospital. The nature of her injuries are unknown.
