San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweeted Wednesday he is "glad the truth is getting out" in response to the 911 tapes released in the investigation in Miami involving a naked woman.

The woman who referred to herself as "Jesus" was the focus of two emergency calls placed April 1, according to 911 tapes released Tuesday.

Kaepernick wrote on Twitter:

"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."

Kaepernick denied any wrongdoing when word of the occurrence because public. Miami police continues looking into what it terms a "suspicious incident," not a criminal investigation.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette and 49ers receiver Quinton Patton were also named in the original police report, made in the wake of an unnamed woman ending up in a hospital the morning of April 2.

In the first 911 call, a male caller who identifies himself as "security" says of the woman, "She said her name was Jesus, and she don't have no clothes on." He added that she was visiting one of the men in the room.

The second call was made by Lockette, multiple media outlets reported. The male caller said, "I want to report there's a young lady in my friend's bed. He's not here. She's going to wait in his bed. She's not leaving. We asked her to leave. We told her he won't be here tonight. She said she's not leaving until she sees him."

The 911 operator asked the caller if the woman was seeking her boyfriend.

"No, no," the man said. "He's not her boyfriend. He's just someone she wants to sleep with. But he's not here, so she went in and got in his bed naked. And said she's going to stay there until he gets back."

According to the police report, the incident occurred when a woman went to Lockette's apartment. Kaepernick and Patton were there.

According to police, the woman said she passed out and later awakened in a hospital.

Kaepernick strongly defended himself on Twitter after news of the incident first spread. He also spoke about the incident last Friday in his hometown of Turlock, Calif., at a public event.

"It's been put out that I did something wrong," he said, according to the Modesto Bee. "Even though it's a bad circumstance, a bad situation, I feel like ultimately I've been blessed because it's changed my way of thinking. It's made me stronger. It's made me look at things differently."
