What We Know About Patrick Mahomes' Brother Jackson's Arrest

The following article includes mentions of sexual assault.

Here are all the details regarding Patrick Mahomes' younger brother Jackson Mahomes and his shocking arrest. If you're a fan of football and TikTok, then chances are you've heard of the popular siblings. Over the last few years, Patrick and Jackson have thrived in their respective career fields, with the former playing as the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs and the latter curating a large following on social media. While the two brothers have made headlines for their wholesome close bond, the youngest Mahomes sibling has garnered attention for his controversial behavior.

Back in March, an investigation was opened into Jackson and an alleged assault on Aspen Vaughn, the owner of Overland Park Apsen's Restaurant & Lounge, by forcibly kissing her during a visit on February 25, per KCTV. A video from the alleged incident also went viral, which sparked further speculation. In addition to the alleged assault, Jackson was accused of shoving a waiter from the restaurant in a separate incident. Shortly after the video was leaked, local authorities announced that they were still "investigating" the situation and would hold off releasing any "additional information." However, after two months of silence, local authorities announced that Jackson was arrested for the aforementioned assault.

Jackson Mahomes has been arrested on charges of aggravated sexual battery

On May 3, Jackson Mahomes was arrested on charges of aggravated sexual battery after he was accused of forcibly kissing restaurant owner Aspen Vaughn in February. According to records from the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, the social media influencer was booked at 7:42 am and is being held on a $100,000 bond. Nearly two months before the TikTok star's arrest, his lawyer, Brandon Davies, released a statement denying the accusations. "We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson," he said. "Every interaction between people needs to be placed in the proper context. Releasing a short clip of any video does not provide proper context."

However, in a March interview with The Kansas City Star, Aspen gave further insight into the incident and claimed that Jackson forcibly kissed her a total of three times. "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 someone was outside the office door and I was yelling for them to come help because he's big and massive," she recalled. The restaurant owner revealed to the news outlet that the social media figure has caused disturbances in the past. "I would say, one out of four times he comes in, it's not a good experience," she said. Mahomes' arraignment is scheduled for May 5.
