Report: Ricardo Lockette involved in alleged sexual assault

Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette is being investigated along with San Francisco 49ers teammates Colin Kaepernick and Quinton Patton regarding an alleged sexual assault in Miami earlier this month, according to TMZ Sports.

TMZ Sports reported that they obtained a police report from Miami PD, which included details of a “suspicious incident” involving the three players and a woman whom they had drinks with on April 1.

Here is more from TMZ:

The woman told police, around 9pm that night she mixed some drinks for the guys and gave them shots, but they told her that “in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”

The woman says she felt lightheaded and went to the bedroom to lie down.  She claims Kaepernick “came up behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her.”

Lockette is allegedly involved because after Kaepernick left the room, Lockette and Patton “peeked” inside the room to see the naked woman.

According to the report, the woman later woke up in a hospital bed with no recollection as to how she got there.

TMZ Sports reported the events as an investigation that centered around sexual assault, but the original incident report does not have specific allegations in it.

“We are aware of the situation, monitoring it closely and will not have any further comment at this time,” a Seahawks spokesman said Thursday afternoon.

None of the three players have been charged at this time, as the investigation is still in the “beginning stages.”

Lockette was drafted by the Seahawks in 2011.

He recorded five catches for 82 yards last season.

    Released. After draft day.

  • Kyle

    I hope they release him, he is obviously not a vital piece at all. Don’t need guys getting involved in this type of stuff.

  • GatorHawk

    He may need to be released just for hanging out with Kaep. That’s treason!

    According to the report, the incident occurred April 1
    when a woman went to Lockette’s apartment in Miami at 9 p.m. Kaepernick
    and Patton were there, and the woman made drinks and served shots to the
    players. She was also told “to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the
    bong which contained marijuana,” the report said.

    The report
    continues to say that the woman felt light headed and went to a bedroom
    where she was later joined by Kaepernick, 26, with whom she had a sexual
    relationship in the past. Kaepernick then left the bedroom. The two did
    not have sex, she said in the report. The report says that Patton, 23,
    and Lockette, 27, peeked inside the bedroom and that the woman yelled at
    them to get out.

    According to the report, the woman does not
    remember anything about the night after that. She woke up in a hospital
    bed the following morning not knowing how she got there. The woman,
    whose name is redacted, reported the incident to police on April 3.

    I’ll wait until the investigation is finished and guilt is actually established before calling for Lockette’s dismissal.

    As a side note, I wonder how “above reproach” Harbaugh will respond to this.
