Jackson Mahomes, Brother of Patrick Mahomes, Arrested on Sexual Battery Charges

Jackson Mahomes, brother of Chiefs quarterback Patrick, was arrested Wednesday on felony charges of aggravated sexual battery, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office records show.

The younger Mahomes was booked by law enforcement officials at 7:42 a.m. in Kansas and is being held on $100,000 bond. The case related to Mahomes’s arrest was not available at the time of publication, though KCTV5 reported local police confirmed the charges are related to a late February incident where Mahomes was said to have shoved a waiter and forcibly kissed a restaurant owner whose establishment is located in Johnson County. He is reportedly facing three counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of battery. 

The incidents took place when Mahomes visited Aspens Restaurant and Lounge, located in Overland Park, Kans., on the night of Feb. 25. The waiter told The Kansas City Star that Mahomes and his five friends were in the restaurant’s basement office when Mahomes pushed the waiter and told him to get out as he attempted to retrieve his water bottle from inside the office.

Restaurant owner Aspen Vaughn said Mahomes then asked to speak to her in private about the waiter incident a little while later. The two went into her office where Vaughn says he grabbed her by the neck and kissed her at least twice, per The Star. The grab apparently left a bruise on her neck. The Star reviewed a video of the incident and a photo of her injuries. 

“He forcibly kissed me out of nowhere,” she said.

Mahomes is well known for his social media presence and has about 1.3 million followers across Instagram and TikTok. He has faced backlash for his content, including one instance where he danced on the number of late Commanders great Sean Taylor during his number retirement and another where he poured water on Ravens fans. 

Brandan Davies, an attorney for Mahomes, maintained his client’s innocence in a statement to The Star in March

“Jackson has done nothing wrong,” he said. “Our investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson’s accuser including the statements of several witnesses. We have reached out to law enforcement to provide the fruit of our investigation so that they may have a complete picture of the matter.”

He is set to be arraigned at a district court on Friday at 1:30 p.m.
