According to the report, the woman, whose name is redacted, says she visited Lockette at his apartment, which is located in the Viceroy in downtown Miami, which includes suites, residences and guest rooms, and that Kaepernick and Patton were also there.
The report says the woman “made some drinks for all of them and gave them shots.’’ It also states that she was told in order to drink the shots she had to “hit’’ a bong that contained marijuana.
The report says that while watching a basketball game, she felt lightheaded and went to a bedroom to lie down. She was joined by Kaepernick, with whom the report says she has had a previous sexual relationship.

Lockette joined the Seahawks in 2011 as an undrafted free agent and played in two games for the Seahawks that season. He was released early in the 2012 season and signed by the 49ers, with whom he spent the rest of the season, though without playing in any games. Lockette and Kaepernick were roommates during Lockette’s time with the 49ers and have been training together this offseason in Miami.
Lockette was released by the 49ers last August, and after a brief stint with the Bears, was signed by the Seahawks on Oct. 22. He played in eight regular-season games for Seattle in 2013 and in all three playoff games.
Lockette is signed through the 2014 season and is due to become a restricted free agent in 2015.
