On Tuesday, May 3rd, Jackson Mahomes, brother of NFL superstar and reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes, was arrested for aggravated sexual battery. The incident occurred in a Kansas City apartment complex in the early morning hours.
According to the police report, Mahomes was accused of touching a woman without her consent. The victim reported the incident to the police, who then arrested Mahomes on the scene.
Mahomes, who is 22 years old, was released on a $10,000 bond later that same day. He has not made a statement regarding the incident.
This is not the first time Mahomes has been in the spotlight for controversial behavior. In 2021, he was criticized for dancing on the field during a pre-game warmup, which some perceived as disrespectful to the opposing team.
The Mahomes family has not commented on the recent arrest. Patrick Mahomes, who is currently preparing for the upcoming NFL season with the Kansas City Chiefs, has also not addressed the incident publicly.
The charges against Jackson Mahomes are serious, and the case will now proceed through the legal system. It remains to be seen what the outcome will be, but this incident is sure to attract a great deal of attention due to the high profile of his brother and the sports world in general.
