Just In: Patrick Mahomes' Father Arrested on DWI Charge Days Prior to Super Bowl
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' father, Pat Mahomes Sr., faced legal trouble on Saturday when he was arrested in Tyler, Texas, for driving while intoxicated (DWI). Records from the jail indicate that Mahomes Sr. was charged and later released on $10,000 bond.
This arrest marked his third DWI charge, with previous incidents in 2012 and 2018. The details of the recent arrest are not clear at the moment. In 2018, Mahomes Sr. pleaded guilty to a DWI charge and served a 40-day jail sentence on weekends from 2019 to 2020.
The timing is concerning as his son, Patrick, is gearing up to lead the Chiefs in the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers, aiming for his third Super Bowl ring and MVP trophy. Mahomes Sr. is a retired professional athlete, known for his 11 MLB seasons as a pitcher with various teams.
