MIAMI - San Francisco 49ers star Colin Kaepernick is being investigated by police in Miami after a woman said she was hanging out with the quarterback and somehow wound up in the hospital, reports CBS San Francisco.

According to the station, authorities in Miami released a police report Thursday that alleges Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton, and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette were all involved in an April 1 incident at Lockette's apartment with an unidentified woman.

The woman reported drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana before going to a bedroom in the apartment to lie down because she felt light-headed, the report states. Kaepernick, with whom the woman said she had a sexual relationship, allegedly came into the room and started kissing and undressing her. He reportedly "told her that he was going to be right back and left the bedroom."

According to the report, the woman said she remained in bed naked when Patton and Lockette allegedly "peeked" inside the bedroom. She reportedly asked them, "What are you doing? Where is Colin?" And that was the last thing the woman said she remembers before waking up later in the hospital.

Though initial media reports referred to the case as a sexual assault investigation, the police report does not mention a possible assault, according to CBS San Francisco.

In a statement, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said that the team is "aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts," reports the station.
