May 3 (UPI) -- Jackson Mahomes, the brother of NFL star Patrick Mahomes, was arrested and charged with sexual battery Wednesday morning in Olathe, Kan., authorities told UPI. He was released Wednesday afternoon.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office arrested Mahomes at 7 a.m. local time, police records show. He was booked into jail at 7:42 a.m., but later posted $100,000 bond and was released about 3 p.m.


Mahomes made his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon through a Zoom video conference. A preliminary hearing is scheduled May 11.

Mahomes faces three felony charges of aggravated sexual battery and another battery charge. They stem from and incident that allegedly occurred Feb. 25 at a restaurant in Overland Park, Kan.

A police report from the Overland Park Police Department says that officers reported to the scene of the alleged incident at 11:36 p.m. that day. The report states that Overland Park officers suspected Mahomes of using drugs or narcotics.

Court documents, obtained by the Kansas City Star, showed that the three sexual battery charges allege Mahomes touched the victim without consent and with "intent to arouse or satisfy" his or another person's sexual desires while the victim was "overcome by force or fear."


The misdemeanor battery charge Mahomes faces claims that he "knowingly caused physical contact with another person" in a "rude, insulting or angry manner."

Johnson County court records show that officers were issued an arrest warrant for Mahomes on Tuesday. Overland Park investigated the incident before officers reported it to the Johnson County District Attorney's Office for a review of the matter.

Overland Park Police previously confirmed to the Star that they were investigating a Feb. 25 incident that involved Mahomes at an Overland Park restaurant. The department told KCTV-5 that Mahomes' four charges stem from that incident.

Aspen's Restaurant and Lounge owner Aspen Vaughn previously told the Star that Mahomes "forcibly kissed" her several times during the Feb. 25 incident, which she said happened at her restaurant.

She provided the Star with a photo of a bruise, which she said came from Mahomes, in addition to video footage.

Mahomes' attorney, Brandon Davies, said in a statement that his client denied the claims of the accuser.

"Our investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson's accuser including the statements of several witnesses," Davies said in March. "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."


Under the conditions of his bond, Mahomes is not allowed to use illegal drugs or controlled substances and must submit to testing when directed. He also is not allowed to drink alcohol, use firearms, contact any victims or witnesses or to publicly comment about the case.

Mahomes was a frequent fixture at Kansas City Chiefs games over the last few years, watching his brother lead the team to multiple Super Bowls. The 22-year-old social media star maintains a following of more than 1 million on TikTok and 258,000 on Instagram.
