49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Takes To Twitter To Defend Himself

UPDATE 4/11 4:04pm

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is defending his reputation.

Kaepernick put out a statement on his Twitter account Friday, a day after his name was linked to a Miami police report involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there.

Referring to some media reports on the situation, Kaepernick said: ``I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up.'' He told fans their faith in him is not misplaced.

Police say Kaepernick, teammate Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette were with the woman earlier this month at a Miami hotel where Lockette lives. The police say it's too early to determine whether a crime was committed.

MIAMI (AP) _ Police in Miami say San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is named in a suspicious incident report involving a woman who passed out a downtown hotel.

The Miami Police Department report released Thursday does not charge Kaepernick with any crime. The woman told police that on April 1, Kaepernick undressed her in a bedroom and left.

The report says 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette were also in the apartment.

The woman told police after Kaepernick left, the two others peeked inside and she ordered them out. The report says she doesn't remember anything after that and woke up in a hospital.

The 49ers say they are aware of the incident. Kaepernick's agent didn't immediately respond to an email and phone call seeking comment.
