Colin Kaepernick on 911 tapes ‘I’m glad the truth is getting out’
Colin Kaepernick has been vocal in defending himself against the allegations that he was involved in some sort of sexual assault case, and 911 audio recordings that were released on Tuesday seem to support his case.
TMZ first reported that Kaepernick was involved in an alleged sexual case in Florida that was being investigated. A woman claimed she went over to see Kaepernick at a hotel ended up in the hospital without knowing how she got there. Kaepernick maintained his innocence in the matter. His said that the women came over, got naked in a bed and would not leave.
The 911 audio, which features the voices of two of Kaepernick’s friends — Ricardo Lockette and Quinton Patton — seems to confirm Kaepernick’s side.
A day after the audio came out, Kaepernick tweeted the following:
On 911 calls, I'm glad the truth is getting out. Info that came out earlier was totally wrong. I look forward to this matter being resolved.

The 49ers have stood behind him during the investigation and so have we. From the start, it only sounded like Kaepernick was just tied to an investigation but not really a perpetrator. This audio seems to confirm that.
