Jackson Mahomes, the brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, has been arrested and charged with sexual assault, according to court documents.
Mr. Mahomes, 22, was booked into the Johnson County Jail Wednesday morning and is being held on $100,000 bond.
Police began investigating Mahomes, who has a large following on TikTok, after he allegedly pushed a waiter and forced a kiss on the owner of a restaurant he visited. The alleged incident occurred on February 25, 2023 at Aspens Restaurant and Bar Lounge in Overland Park, Missouri.
Aspen Vaughn, the owner, shared her story with the Kansas City Star, alleging that Mr. Mahomes strangled her and kissed her twice without her consent.
“He forcefully kissed me out of the blue,” Ms. Vaughn said, according to Fox News, “and I’m like, I push him away and I’m like, ‘What are you doing?’ and then he proceeded to do it two more times, where the last time I was pushing him, and I can see on the cameras that someone was outside the office door, and I was yelling for them to come help, because he’s big and massive. .”
She said that Mr. Mahomes was a frequent guest at her restaurant after he developed a friendship with her stepdaughter. Ms. Vaugh said that she believed he was intoxicated the night of the incident, according to CBS Sports.
Mahomes’ legal defense has denied the allegations and says witness statements will prove his client’s innocence.
“Jackson hasn’t done anything wrong,” Brandan Davies 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 they can have a complete picture of the matter.”
