The younger brother is accused of assaulting a restaurant owner
Patrick Mahomes and Jackson Mahomes
Just a few weeks after Patrick Mahomes dominated the sports news cycle because of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, it’s now his brother Jackson Mahomes who is in the headlines.
In the case of the 22-year-old, though, it’s not for any sporting achievements.
According to the Kansas City Star, local police are investigating allegations that Jackson Mahomes assaulted a 19-year-old waiter and assaulted the 40-year-old owner of the same restaurant.
He is accused of forcibly kissing the owner, a woman, and police are studying surveillance camera footage which appears to have captured the incident.
He has denied these claims and his lawyer shared a statement with the Kansas City Star.
“Jackson has done nothing wrong,” attorney 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 that they may have a complete picture of the matter.”
