Kaepernick: Charges in TMZ report 'completely wrong'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Apr 10, 2014 - UPDATED: Apr 11, 2014

The quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is refuting a report which initially said he was the subject of an investigation into a "possible sexual assault," something which apparently is not the case.

TMZ.com initially reported Thursday the possible sexual assault happened at a hotel in Miami earlier this month.

Kaepernick took to Twitter to respond.

FOX Sports' Mike Garofalo also reported Thursday the incident did not involve a sexual assault.

According to a 49ers writer, the team said:

Kaepernick is reportedly not the only NFL player involved in the investigation. From a Sacramento Bee reporter:

A CBS Sports report says that, according to a police report, a woman claimed "Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her."  She also said she did not remember them having sex, and that the other two football players "peeked" into the room she was in.

She claims the men shut the door, but she could not remember other details after that point. She then said in the report that she went to a hospital, but did not remember how she arrived there.

According to CBS Sports, the woman said she had a prior history with Kaepernick.

His agent talked with NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Kaepernick made the Pro Bowl for the 2013 season in leading the 49ers to their third straight conference championship game.
