The San Francisco 49ers are dealing with a bit of a growing headache in Miami this Thursday as franchise quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for what Miami police are calling a suspicious incident. While TMZ had reported it as a sexual assault investigation earlier int he day, the Miami police department is treading water and are refusing to define it as such on the record.
Officially, as FOX Sports’ Mike Garafolo has pointed out, the investigation is not of the sexual assault variety and is merely a suspicious incident.
Miami PD adamant to our @writerkev + others they’re calling Kaepernick situation a “suspicious incident,” not a possible sexual assault.

Of course, facts can change things one way or another as something could come up that exonerates Kaepernick as much as it doesn’t.
The bottom line is it’s far too early to tell just what is going on and the Miami police department is where the speculation into the incident clearly begins and ends.
