Patrick Mahomes became so famous so quickly that even members of his family became household names.
Jackson Mahomes was charged with one count of misdemeanor battery and three counts of aggravated sexual battery in May.
Nearly three months after he was accused of forcibly kissing the owner of a Kansas City-area bar and shoving a 19-year-old waiter.
Video from the bar appeared to show Mahomes’ unwanted kiss, and his lawyers confirmed after the video’s release that they were cooperating with a police investigation.
While the incident was Mahomes’ first known run-in with the law, he found himself embroiled in multiple controversies in previous years.
He apologized to fans after filming a TikTok dance on a logo honoring the late Sean Taylor in 2021, and he was caught pouring water on Ravens fans during a Chiefs loss one month earlier.
Mahomes has remained around the Chiefs this season, though he has avoided controversy amid the legal process.
Instagram posts show Mahomes attended at least five games during the Chiefs’ season.
