Jackson Mahomes, the popular social media figure and brother of Super Bowl winning quarterback Patrick Mahomes, is being investigated by police in Kansas after alleged assaults of a restaurant owner and waiter last weekend, according to a report Saturday by the Kansas City Star.
Mahomes, 22, allegedly forcibly kissed the 40-year-old owner, and shoved a 19-year-old waiter more than once, the owner and waiter told the publication. The incidents occurred last Saturday at Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park, just outside of Kansas City.
Vaughn alleges Mahomes grabbed her by her throat and kissed her at least twice in her basement office at the restaurant. She said Mahomes’ advances were unwelcome and shocking.
She believes Mahomes was intoxicated. She provided video of the incident to the Star and local police. She also provided a photograph showing a bruise on her neck after the interaction.
“He forcibly kissed me out of nowhere,” Vaughn told the KC Star, “and 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 somebody was outside the office door and I was yelling for them to come help because he’s big and massive.”
The waiter told the Star he was pushed out of office by Mahomes.
Mahomes’ lawyer provided a statement to USA TODAY Sports about the allegations.
“We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” Brandan Davies 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. We have faith in the process and look forward to a swift resolution of the matter.”
A spokesperson for the Overland Park Police Department in Kansas told USA TODAY Sports it is looking into the incident.
A message left for Vaughn at the restaurant also had not yet been returned.
Mahomes, who has more than 1.1 million followers on Tik Tok, is the younger brother of the star NFL quarterback who led the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl win last month.
