Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of NFL star Patrick Mahomes, has been arrested and charged with aggravated sexual battery. The incident allegedly occurred at Aspens Restaurant and Bar Lounge in Overland Park, where Mahomes had been accused of assaulting restaurant owner Aspen Vaughn by forcibly kissing her and shoving a waiter.
Mahomes has denied the accusations through his lawyer, Brandon Davies, in a statement to KCTV5 back in March. However, recently released surveillance video from the alleged February incident has raised new concerns about the allegations. Over time, there have been other allegations of him doubting his sexuality. He has given the answers to some of the questions that people have asked him related to his sexuality or his plans to marry.
The video shows Mahomes repeatedly grabbing Vaughn’s neck and forcibly kissing her as she appears to push him away. The incident has sparked outrage on social media, with many expressing their support for Vaughn and calling for Mahomes to be held accountable for his actions.

Aggravated sexual battery is a serious charge, and if convicted, Patrick Mahomes‘s younger brother could face significant legal consequences, including potential jail time and a permanent criminal record. The case will now move forward in the court system, and the truth will ultimately be determined by a jury.
Is Patrick Mahomes’ brother gay?
There are many who think that maybe Jackson is gay. Obviously, his recent climb to stardom has had many thinking about his sexuality. However, Jackson said that it is very insulting that he reads the queries like “Is Jackson Mahomes Gay?”
Today reminded us how Jackson Mahomes had us all fooled. He is not Patrick’s gay brother but Patrick’s straight brother who is a sexual abuser . Who would of thunk it?

Replying to the allegations he said that he is drawn towards women and that he has confirmed it multiple times. However, at 22, he does not have any plans to marry and his girlfriend remains a mystery (only if he has one).
What did Jackson Mahomes say in defense of the charges?
The Mahomes family has yet to release a statement on the matter. However, a statement has been released by his lawyer.
“We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” told the lawyer in a statement to KCTV5. “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.”

However, this is not the first time that the younger Mahomes has been involved in such kinds of accidents. In 2021, he was involved in another incident when he spilled water on a rival fan. Speaking at that time, the elder one came forward and said that he will learn to deal with it. “He takes a lot and he’s usually pretty good at it,” Patrick told the interviewer, “and he’ll learn from it and just try to stay away from those people as best he can.”
There have thus been multiple reports about him being involved in such controversies. That being said, we’ll have to wait till further notifications come.
