Patrick Mahomes' father arrested for driving while impaired

 February 5, 2024

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was in the headlines last week after he helped his teammates score a victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

However, this past weekend it was Mahomes' father who made news after he was arrested for driving while intoxicated. 

Mahomes has had five prior impaired driving arrests

According to the Daily Mail, 53-year-old Patrick Mahomes Sr. was taken into custody on Saturday evening by the Tyler Police Department for yet another impaired driving offense.

The paper noted that Mahomes Sr. has been involved in five other similar incidents. Two of them took place in 2012, another two occurred in 2018, and the fifth came in 2019.

The former professional baseball pitcher was reportedly remanded to the Smith County Jail where he was held on a $100,000 bond.

Mahomes Sr. will be able to watch his son play in Super Bowl

The Daily Mail revealed on Monday that Mahomes Sr. was bonded out the day after his arrest and will be permitted to watch his son play in the Super Bowl this coming Sunday provided that he does not consume alcohol while there.

His release conditions also include submitting to random alcohol and drug tests as well as install an ignition interlock device on his car and report to a Smith County probation officer.

The paper noted that a police report from the arrest said Mahomes Sr. failed a field sobriety test after an open 16oz can of Coors beer was discovered in his vehicle's center console.

"On February 3rd, 2024, at around 8:30 p.m., an officer with the Tyler Police Department initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling west in the 1100 block of W. Gentry Pkwy," the police report was quoted as saying.

"Evidence obtained during the stop led to the arrest of the driver, identified as Patrick Mahomes Sr. He was booked into the Smith County Jail for Driving While Intoxicated, 3rd or more, a 3rd degree felony," it added.

Daughter-in-law accused of displaying a "high horse" attitude

Brittany Mahomes is Mahomes Sr.'s daughter-in-law, and she was in the spotlight last week after some social media users said she displayed a "high horse" attitude towards a stadium employee in Baltimore this past Sunday.

The Daily Mail reported that video footage went viral on TikTok showing Mahomes and several others walking through the stadium. At one point she can be seen asking an employee, "Where do we go from here?" while spinning her finger in a circular motion.

Although the newspaper pointed out that there was no indication the employee took offense, critics interpreted Mahomes' action as showing arrogance.
