Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ brother, Jackson Mahomes, was arrested on Wednesday on a charge of aggravated sexual battery.
According to jail records, the charge stems from an incident that occurred at a Kansas restaurant in February.
Mahomes, who is a TikTok star, was reportedly being investigated for shoving a waiter and forcibly kissing the female owner of the Overland Park restaurant.

Aspen Vaughn, the owner, claimed that Mahomes grabbed her by the throat and forcibly kissed her multiple times.
She stated that she tried to push him away, but he persisted.
Vaughn further claimed that she called for help, and there was someone outside the office door who could have heard her.
However, Mahomes’ lawyer, Brandan Davies, denied the allegations, stating that Jackson did nothing wrong.
He added that their investigation had revealed substantial evidence refuting the accuser’s claims, including witness statements.
The lawyer also mentioned that they had reached out to law enforcement to provide them with the results of their investigation.
Mahomes was booked into the Johnson County Jail at around 7:42 a.m. local time and was being held on $100,000 bond.
He is set to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday afternoon.
His sister-in-law, Brittany Mahomes, spoke out in defense of Jackson earlier this month, calling the people who criticize him “ignorant.”
She stated that Jackson is a human being just trying to live his life and find his way. She advised people to stop judging him and to “just shut up.”
Jackson Mahomes recently returned to social media after a brief hiatus.
