Jackson Mahomes, the 22-year-old brother of the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, was arrested and booked into Johnson County (Kansas) Detention Center on account of aggravated sexual battery.
His arrest was in relation to an incident that occurred at a Kansas restaurant in February, in which the staff of Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park claim the 22-year-old shoved a waiter and forcibly kissed the owner. Aspen Vaughn, the owner of the restaurant, told The Kansas City Star at the time that Mahomes grabbed her throat and non-consensually kissed her twice.
“He forcibly kissed me out of nowhere,” she explained. “I’m telling him, pushing him off saying, ‘What are you doing?’ and then he proceeded to do it two more times, where the last time I was pushing him off, and I can see on the cameras that somebody was outside the office door, and I was yelling for them to come help, because he’s big and massive.”
Surveillance video published Wednesday by TMZ shows Mahomes in the restaurant with his hands around Vaughn’s neck and kissing her. However, Brandon Davies, an attorney representing the 22-year-old TikTok star, has denied allegations of wrongdoing on various occasions.
In March, he issued a statement to KCTV5 that said the video of his client was taken out of context. “We have provided law enforcement with the tools and evidence they need to evaluate the claims against Jackson,” Davies’ statement read. “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.”
Attorney says Jackson Mahomes ‘has done nothing wrong’ following restaurant incident
According to Fox Sports, the attorney also said his team has evidence that doesn’t place Mahomes in the wrong. “Jackson has done nothing wrong,” he explained.
Davies went on to add, “Our investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson’s accuser, including the statements of several witnesses. 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.”
Since the news broke about the incident, Brittany Mahomes, sister-in-law to Jackson, defended him on social media when asked what she thinks of the situation.
“He is a human just trying to live his life and find his way and until you walk a day in his shoes (which no one ever will) you have no right to say s— about him,” she said in response to those criticizing her brother-in-law.
