Police are investigating Jackson Mahomes, the 22-year-old brother of Patrick Mahomes, for an incident that occured at a Kansas City area bar.
Per to the Star’s report, Mahomes allegedly pushed a 19-year-old waiter more than once and later forcibly kissed a 40-year-old woman Aspen Vaughn, who is also the owner of the establishment. Vaughn told the Star that the advances were unwanted, and she believed he was intoxicated. She claims the forcible kissing occurred more than once, which video of the event that has surfaced online shows.
According to the Star article, the incident occurred last Saturday when Mahomes and his friends were at the restaurant. They were congregating in the employee office in the basement, and Vaughn smelled marijuana coming from the room.
The waiter attempted to enter the office to get his water bottle, which was when Mahomes shoved him.
When Vaughn later attempted to address the shoving incident, that’s when Mahomes forcibly kissed her, according to Vaughn.
The owner told the Star that Mahomes is a frequent visitor of the establishment and that, “one out of four times he comes in, it’s not a good experience.”
Mahomes is friends with Vaughn’s stepdaughter who works at the restaurant.

Why is Jackson Mahomes assault story coming out now?
Vaughn went to the Kansas City Star because she was worried police would not pursue her sexual assault accusation since Mahomes is a high-profile individual. As of now, a formal police report has not been filed and as such, Mahomes has not been charged.
