MIAMI — Albany native and former Monroe star Ricardo Lockette is one of three NFL players being investigated by Miami police for an incident that happened earlier this month.

In a report filed last week, a woman claims she had drinks with Lockette, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and awoke in a hospital with no memory of the night.

According to the police report, the woman told police that on April 1 she went to the apartment of Lockette — a wide receiver for the Seahawks and longtime friend of Kaepernick — at the Viceroy Hotel in downtown Miami, where she later passed out naked in bed and woke up hours later in the hospital.

The Seahawks released a statement Thursday saying the team was “monitoring” the investigation.

“We are aware of the situation, monitoring it closely and will not have any further comment at this time,” the statement reads.

No charges have been filed, police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes said without elaborating on the investigation. The woman’s name and age were redacted on the police report obtained by Reuters.

“They talked for a while and she mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots,” said the report, which also says the woman claims to have been smoking marijuana with the three players.

She later said she felt lightheaded, went to a bedroom to lie down when Kaepernick came in and began kissing and undressing her, according to the police report.

He left the bedroom saying he would return shortly, the report said. The woman also told police, according to the report, that Patton and Lockette “peeked” in on her in the bedroom but quickly closed the door after she asked them to leave.

“She cannot remember anything after that,” the report said, and she “woke up in a hospital bed and doesn’t remember how she got there or who transported her to the hospital.”

She told police that she did not have sex with Kaepernick, but that she has had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past, according to the report.

Kaepernick’s agent, Scott Smith, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Agents for Lockette and Patton could not immediately be reached. A message to Lockette from The Herald requesting a comment about the situation was not immediately returned.

Lockette was recently honored by the city of Albany after helping the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII earlier this year. City officials named March 22 “Ricardo Lockette Day” during a ceremony for the wide reciever last month.
