Jackson Mahomes — younger brother of Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes II — is being investigated by Overland Park (Kansas) police for two separate instances of assault that occurred shortly after 10 p.m. local time on February 25, according to The Kansas City Star.

The KC Star’s Mike Hendricks reported on March 4 that the 22-year-old “allegedly shoved the 19-year-old male waiter more than once and later forcibly kissed the 40-year-old female owner of Aspens Restaurant and Lounge, 6995 W. 151st St.”

“He forcibly kissed me out of nowhere,” restaurant owner Aspen Vaughn told The KC Star, “and I’m telling him, pushing him off saying ‘what are you doing?’ and then he proceeded to do it two more times where the last time I was pushing him off and I can see on the cameras that somebody was outside the office door and I was yelling for them to come help because he’s big and massive.”

According to The KC Star, Vaughn, who stands at 5-foot-4, believed the 6-foot-6 Mahomes to be intoxicated at the time of the incident.

“It’s disgusting,” Vaughn said she told Mahomes, via The KC Star. “Like you’re a child and he was trying to say ‘we should be a power couple,’ and I’m like ‘clearly you’re out of your mind right now.’”

Security footage of the second allegation, first reported by TMZ Sports, has since surfaced on social media.

Authorities ‘Still Investigating’ Jackson Mahomes Allegations

Overland Park authorities have not yet released an official report, but did provide a statement, per Hendricks:

“The Police Department is aware of an incident that occurred on Feb. 25, 2023, at a business near 151st and Metcalf. The department is still investigating. Releasing any additional information would be inappropriate at this time. Anyone with information should contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.”

Mahomes’ attorney, Brandan Davies, also spoke on his client’s behalf, stating: “Jackson has done nothing wrong. 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.”

According to The KC Star and Vaughn, Jackson Mahomes frequents Aspens Restaurant and Lounge because he is friends with Vaughn’s stepdaughter. The restaurant owner claimed she’s had issues with him in the past, however, telling the newspaper that “I would say one out of four times he comes in, it’s not a good experience.”

Social Media Reacts to Latest Jackson Mahomes Public Incident

Despite his brother’s success on and off the football field as an athlete and philanthropist, Jackson Mahomes has become a polarizing figure in his own right. Known mostly as a social media influencer, the younger Mahomes has 36K followers on Twitter, 260K on Instagram and 1.1 million on TikTok — his number one platform.

He has previously received negative backlash from Chiefs Kingdom and NFL fans for various public incidents, including pouring water on a Ravens fan in September 2021, filming a TikTok dance video while “accidentally” standing on a Sean Taylor No. 21 on-field tribute at FedEx Field in October 2021, and trading barbs with a Kansas City bar in December 2021 after publicly accusing the establishment of “absolutely terrible” service.

Needless to say, many spectators were quick to react on Twitter after details and video of the latest incident emerged.

“Jackson Mahomes downfall?👀” A viral comment asked with a GIF of people cheering from the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

“There’s no way out of this one,” another user tweeted via GIF. “You’re done.”

A third criticized sarcastically: “‘People just hate on Mahomes’s family for no reason.’ 😐”

“Imagine being one of the best QB ever but you have to deal with him as your brother,” another popular comment read.

Some replies did question the security footage more than others. One user voiced: “[I don’t know] about this, seems like she reviewed the footage and thought lawsuit.”
