Chiefs Quarterback Responds to Father’s Arrest
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, briefly commented on his father’s recent arrest for driving while intoxicated. Mahomes stated, “He’s doing good for whatever the situation is,” emphasizing that it is a private matter for his family.
Patrick Mahomes Sr., a former professional baseball player, was arrested in Tyler, Texas on Saturday night. This marks at least his third charge of driving while intoxicated. The 54-year-old’s bond was set at $10,000 and he was released the following day.
Details of the Incident
According to records obtained from the Smith County Sheriff’s Office, Mahomes Sr. was allegedly driving with an open container of beer when he was stopped by law enforcement due to an expired registration. This incident comes after a similar arrest in Texas back in 2018, where Mahomes Sr. pleaded guilty and served a 40-day jail sentence on weekends.
Mahomes Jr.’s Focus on Super Bowl
While declining to discuss the specifics of his father’s situation, Patrick Mahomes Jr. remains focused on the upcoming Super Bowl. As the Chiefs aim to become back-to-back champions, Mahomes expressed the usual nerves that come with such a high-stakes game. “You have to embrace those nerves. Now it’s about going out and playing the game,” he stated.
