Jackson Mahomes, Brother of NFL Star Patrick Mahomes, Charged With Sexual Battery, Assault
Jackson Mahomes, 22, “unlawfully and feloniously touched a person without consent,” authorities allege.
Jackson Mahomes, the social media influencer and brother of Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, is facing a trio of felony charges.
Mahomes, 22, was charged with three felony counts of aggravated sexual battery and a fourth misdemeanor count of battery related to alleged incidents that occurred at a Kansas restaurant in February.
He was arrested on Wednesday and was later released the same day from a Johnson County jail after posting a $100,000 bond, according to online jail records obtained by Oxygen.com.
Authorities allege in court documents that Mahomes “unlawfully and feloniously touched a person without consent with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of the offender or another” and “unlawfully and knowingly caused physical contact with another person in a rude, insulting, or angry manner,” according to Kansas television station KCTV.
Overland police say Mahomes allegedly forcibly kissed the owner of an Overland Park restaurant and also shoved a male server in separate incidents. Surveillance video of the suspected sexual battery, which circulated online in the aftermath of one the encounters, showed Mahomes kissing the 40-year-old of Aspens Restaurant and Bar Lounge.
“The Police Department is aware of an incident that occurred on Feb. 25, 2023, at a business near 151st and Metcalf,” Overland Police Department said in a statement, per the outlet. “The department is still investigating. Releasing any additional information would be inappropriate at this time. Anyone with information should contact the TIPS Hotline at 813-474-TIPS.”
Mahomes, who declined to comment on the charges Wednesday, was trailed by a band of TV reporters as he departed the detention facility. The 22-year-old, who wore a tucked polo shirt as a handler escorted him to a waiting vehicle, remained silent as reporters hurled questions at him.
“Anything you want to say to the victims of these crimes?” one off-camera reporter asked before Mahomes disappeared from view.
His defense team, however, had previously brushed off the video documenting the incident, while denying the allegations against his client. Notably, Mahomes’ attorney, Brandan Davies, complained that the video clip in question was taken out of context.
“We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” Davies, said in a statement in March. “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.”
Mahomes briefly appeared before a judge on Wednesday. Judge Thomas Sutherland has barred Mahomes or his lawyers from publicly speaking about the open case, per KCTV. His next court date has been set for May 11, per online jail records. He’s also barred from using drugs and alcohol and is prohibited from contacting the case’s victims or witnesses.
Mahomes has 1.1 million followers on TikTok.
