Jackson Mahomes allegedly forcibly kissed woman, pushed restaurant worker
Jackson Mahomes, the social media influencer and brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, allegedly grabbed a woman by the throat and forcibly kissed her three times, as well as pushed a restaurant employee, according to court records released Monday in Kansas.
Johnson County District Judge Thomas Sunderland ordered the release of a redacted copy of the affidavit stemming from charges placed against Mahomes, according to the Kansas City Star. The influencer was arrested earlier this month and charged with battery and three counts of aggravated sexual battery. Police confirmed in March that the 22-year-old Mahomes was the subject of incidents that occurred in February at Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City.
Jackson Mahomes ‘pushed’ restaurant employee: affidavit
Police in Overland Park were dispatched to Aspens Restaurant and Lounge on Feb. 25 for a reported battery, according to the affidavit. The victim, whose name was not released, told police he needed to get his water bottle from the restaurant’s office, and found the door locked. After entering the door code, the victim attempted to enter the room but Mahomes allegedly pushed the victim and told him he could not come in.
‘(The employee) told Jackson that he worked there and needed his water bottle. The defendant pushed (the employee) again and told him to get out,’ the affidavit reads.
Police spoke with someone that was in the room and allegedly told officers Mahomes extended his arm toward the employee, but couldn’t tell if physical contact was made. Other people interviewed offered different accounts if Mahomes made contact with the employee. Mahomes allegedly later apologized, but ‘also told him that he shouldn’t have to tell (the victim) twice to leave a room and that if he is in a room in the restaurant, it is off limits.’
Mahomes ‘forced’ woman’s head back, kissed her without consent: affidavit
When investigating the battery report, the owner of Aspens Restaurant and Lounge, who was not named, told police they’ve had problems with Mahomes before and had to previously kick him out, according to the affidavit.
The woman told police Mahomes had previously told her he needed to speak with her in the office, where they went and he closed the door, the affidavit reads.
‘He then grabbed her throat, forcing her head back and kissed her and put his tongue in her mouth,’ according to the affidavit.
The woman told authorities she didn’t consent to the actions and pushed Mahomes away, but 30 seconds later, he allegedly did the same thing. The woman said she struggled with Mahomes and pulled his hands off her waist and pushed him away. Seconds later, Mahomes allegedly committed the same act for a third time, telling her not to tell anyone.
According to the affidavit, the woman tried calling for employees but they didn’t hear her.
‘After the defendant left the office, she told them both what had happened and showed them her neck which had visible sign of injury that was fresh,’ the affidavit reads. ‘Both servers confirmed this account to police.’
Mahomes allegedly told woman ‘what he could do for her business’
After the incident, the woman called her boyfriend while Mahomes re-entered the office and told the woman ‘what he could do for her business,’ the affidavit reads.
The woman’s boyfriend arrived at the restaurant and saw Mahomes in the office with her. Mahomes allegedly refused to leave the office until the woman gave him a hug, ‘which she reluctantly did,’ according to the affidavit. After the woman told her boyfriend what happened, he went up to Mahomes and told him and his friends to leave. He was reportedly angry being told to leave, but eventually left.
A 19-year-old male waiter and the 40-year-old female owner of the restaurant previously told the Kansas City Star of the alleged incidents.
Mahomes, who was arrested and later released on a $100,000 bond on May 3, according to jail records, is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday for a bond hearing, the Kansas City Star reported. The court will decide if he can have contact with several witnesses on the condition he doesn’t discuss the case with them.
Brandon Davies, an attorney for Mahomes, previously said the court has prohibited Mahomes and his lawyers from commenting on the charges.
