Jackson Mahomes, the brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, has been arrested on sexual battery charges.
Jackson Mahomes was arrested around 7:45 a.m. on past charges that he allegedly tried to forcibly kiss the owner of Aspens Restaurant and Lounge, a 40-year-old woman. Mahomes was booked on three counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of misdemeanor battery.
The woman alleged Jackson was intoxicated. The social media influencer and brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has yet to comment publicly on the incident, though his lawyer has.
“We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” the statement read, per KCTV. “Every interaction between people needs to be placed in the proper context. Releasing a short clip of any video does not provide proper context. We have faith in the process and look forward to a swift resolution of the matter.”
Police confirmed that Mahomes arrest stems from this incident.
Jackson Mahomes arrested: Everything to know
Mahomes has a history of controversial incidents, as outlined by FanSided’s Josh Wilson when these allegations were initially levied against him:
Jackson Mahomes has been involved in his fair share of controversial incidents. Some are relatively innocuous, like photobombing his brother’s interviews.
He has come under fire for his behavior in Kansas City-area establishments over the years as well, though nothing of this magnitude with police involvement has occurred previously.
Why was Jackson Mahomes arrested now?
Mahomes was arrested now and not back in February, as police had to properly investigate the incident, which they mentioned in a statement released at the time:
“The Police Department is aware of an incident that occurred on Feb. 25, 2023, at a business near 151st and Metcalf. The department is still investigating. Releasing any additional information would be inappropriate at this time. Anyone with information should contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.”
After a proper investigation, it appears they found the evidence necessary to arrest and indict Mahomes.
