Mahomes is well known by NFL fans for social media videos of him dancing on the sidelines of his brother’s games. He is often seen with sister-in-law Brittany Mahomes, who married the Chiefs star in 2022.
Numerous incidents have made him a controversial figure in NFL circles.

On Feb. 25, weeks after his brother helped secure the Chiefs another Super Bowl championship, Mahomes was accused of the forced kissing of a restaurant owner in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, across the Missouri-Kansas state line.
In March, police refrained from sharing the official complaint but did offer a statement to the CBS affiliate.
“The Police Department is aware of an incident that occurred on Feb. 25, 2023, at a business near 151st and Metcalf,” the statement read.
“The department is still investigating. Releasing any additional information would be inappropriate at this time.”
Mahomes attorney Brandon Davies told the outlet his client had done nothing wrong and said the young man was cooperating with officers.
“We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” the lawyer said in a statement.
He also commented on a video of the incident that leaked online.
“Every interaction between people needs to be placed in the proper context. Releasing a short clip of any video does not provide proper context,” Davies said. “We have faith in the process and look forward to a swift resolution of the matter.”
If convicted, Mahomes could face up to 55 months behind bars.
