A new 9-1-1 report indicates Ricardo Lockette was the one who called police to get the woman out of the apartment. We've got a look at the report.

Fooch's Update: Matt Barrows tweeted this a bit ago:

We are starting to hear some more details surrounding the situation involving Colin Kaepernick, Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette. A Miami radio host has come across an incident report detailing a 9-1-1 call by Lockette.

According to the report, Lockette called 9-1-1 at 12:03 a.m. to let them know the woman in question would not leave his apartment. Lockette told the police he and the woman had been arguing. Lockette said she was naked on Colin Kaepernick's bed, and refused to leave. According to subsequent reports from the Matts, Lockette made a second 9-1-1 call at approximately 12:20 a.m. The police sent a "Crisis Intervention Team". The CIT was "designed for first responders who handle crisis calls involving people with mental illness including those with co-occurring substance use disorders."

Here is a copy of the incident report.

Prior to this report, all we had was the woman's rundown of events in the police incident report. She claimed she had been drinking with the players and they suggested she smoke some marijuana. She said she then passed out and next thing she knew, she woke up at the hospital. A day later, the Miami Fire Rescue spokesperson informed the media that the police had been called, and then the Fire Rescue unit was dispatched at 12:32, at which point they took the girl to the hospital.

This latest news from Slater paints a different picture. People have been quick to criticize Kap for putting himself in this situation, but these facts change the context of the entire situation. It would also explain why Kap was quick to blast TMZ for their reports. Here is what Kap said on Friday:

It will be interesting to see how the players proceed on this once things settle down. TMZ went with sexual assault in their story and stuck with it for much of the weekend. If this thing ends up going away, I wouldn't be surprised if Team Kaepernick looks into potential legal options against TMZ. We're still waiting on more details, but this is a step in the right direction for Kap, Patton and Lockette.
