Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of NFL star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, is currently under investigation for multiple alleged incidents of assault that took place at a bar in Overland Park, Kansas.
As per reports from The Kansas City Star, the incidents occurred on February 25th at Aspens Restaurant and Lounge.
It is alleged that Mahomes shoved a 19-year-old waiter multiple times and later forcibly kissed the 40-year-old female owner of the restaurant.
The owner, Aspen Vaughn, claimed that Mahomes grabbed her neck and left a small bruise.
According to Vaughn, Mahomes was intoxicated, and his advances were unexpected and unwelcome. She further mentioned that Mahomes told her that they could be a power couple, to which she responded that he was out of his mind. Vaughn claims to have video footage of Mahomes grabbing her neck and attempting to kiss her twice.
The police are currently investigating the matter, and the surveillance footage from the evening is under review. Brandan Davies, Mahomes’ lawyer, has denied the allegations and stated that Jackson has done nothing wrong.
Davies also mentioned that their investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims, including statements from several witnesses.
Mahomes has gained popularity on social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram, where he has a polarizing presence due to his general brashness. In 2021, he was involved in a controversy where he poured water on Ravens fans.
The waiter involved in the incident wishes to conceal his identity and claims that the alleged incident began when Mahomes went into the restaurant’s office and would not let him in to grab his water bottle.
The waiter said that he smelled an odor of marijuana after Mahomes and his group later went into the restaurant’s VIP area and admonished him that the restaurant’s guests would be able to smell it.
Mahomes has been a friend of Vaughn’s stepdaughter, and she previously posted a photo of Mahomes and her stepdaughter together on Facebook, writing that Mahomes was a “good kid.”
The police have released a statement confirming an investigation, but they have not provided any additional information.
They have requested anyone with information to contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
