PATRICK MAHOMES has broken his silence after his brother Jackson’s recent arrest.
The 27-year-old Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was asked to comment on Jackson’s situation after Jackson recently appeared in court facing three counts of alleged sexual battery.
Jackson was arrested on May 3
The two-time Super Bowl champion and NFL MVP described the situation as “kind of a personal thing that I just, kind of, am going to keep to myself.”
Patrick went on to say that “At the end of the day, I’ve come here to play football and try to take care of my family, at the same time.
“So, [I] just kind of keep it to myself and just go out there and play football when I’m in the building.”
His decision to keep his cards close to his chest is no surprise given that he has remained quiet on the matter throughout the process.
Arrested on May 3, Jackson was subsequently booked into the Johnson County jail on a $100k bond.
The incident in question allegedly took place on February 25, when he supposedly assaulted a restaurant owner, according to TMZ.
Having allegedly shoved a male waiter during the evening, Jackson is said to have gone on to forcibly kiss the restaurant’s female owner later that night.
His lawyer, Brandan Davies, released a statement at the time claiming: “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.”
Jackson then went on to appear in court on May 16.
At this time, no plea has been made, and he is set to return to court in August.
Meanwhile, Patrick has returned to the Chiefs’ training facility with OTA’s underway.
Fresh off of a victory at Super Bowl LVII and his second MVP season, the five-time Pro Bowler is working to keep the momentum up despite a new offensive coordinator and numerous new players on offense.
As for Jackson, a popular TikToker with over one-million followers, his social media presence has dwindled since the alleged incident, having posted only once since February 24.
His Instagram profile has also gone relatively silent, with his last post having been a snap of him and Patrick together on draft day.
