Colin Kaepernick and Aldon Smith are elite NFL football stars who are on the San Francisco 49’ers football team. Colin Kaepernick is the starting quarterback for the team, and Aldon Smith is the Starting outside linebacker for the team. On the field, Colin and Aldon are invincible. Off the field, Colin and Aldon show their weaknesses. Here is what happened to Colin Kaepernick and Aldon Smith in April 2014 off the field:
Colin Kaepernick is in hot water concerning a police investigation that is “sexual in nature” that occurred April 1, 2014. The Miami Police Department said that “Colin Kaepernick is a suspect in an investigation that is “sexual in nature.” (TMZ) Of course, Colin Kaepernick denies that he had anything to do with the incident. Colin Kaepernick posted on his Twitter account regarding the investigation, “I assure you that your faith is not misplaced.”
“According to the police report, both the quarterback and Patton were at the apartment and the woman served drinks and served shots. The woman, the police report states, was told to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.’ When she felt light-headed, she was joined by Kaepernick, with whom she had a past sexual relationship. ‘Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her,’ the report states. ‘Mr. Kaepernick started to undress her. She got completely naked. Mr. Kaepernick told her that he was going to be right back and left the bedroom. They did not have sex.” (Boren, Cindy)
Aldon Smith was arrested on April 14, 2014 for falsely reporting a bomb threat at the Los Angeles International Airport. “A statement released by Sgt. Karla Ortiz of the LAPD says Smith was selected for secondary screening at the airport. The statement says Smith then became “belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding towards the gate area.” (Reyes, Lorenzo) Of course, Aldon Smith did not have a bomb on him though.
I bet Colin Kaepernick and Aldon Smith can’t wait to get back on the field to show how invincible they are again. It looks like the off season doesn’t work too well for their image as invincible elite NFL football players. Stardom can get the best of people who are not prepared to handle such a thing. Colin and Aldon will bounce back from their mishaps once they mature a little more.
