Jackson Mahomes, brother of Super Bowl winner Patrick Mahomes, remained in stoic silence as he left prison after posting $100,000 bond on Wednesday afternoon.
Mahomes was arrested for aggravated sexual assault in connection with a February incident on Wednesday morning.
The 22-year-old – known for his extravagant behavior in NFL stadiums – has previously been charged with forcibly kissing a 40-year-old woman who owns a bar just outside Kansas City.
He was released in the afternoon after posting bail and making his first court appearance, according to KMBC News, but refused to acknowledge media on his release from jail.
As he rushed to a vehicle from the entrance to the facility in Johnson County, Kansas, members of the press attempted to speak to him.
However, Mahomes, who is known to be quite loud when attending his brother’s matches, remained silent.
He was asked, “What would you like to say to the victims of these crimes you are accused of?” To which, Mahomes had no answer.
The alleged incident has been under police investigation since March and Mahomes was jailed at 7:42 a.m. Wednesday.
Mahomes was originally scheduled to appear in court for the first time on Friday, but the appearance was brought forward to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, where he pleaded and posted bail, the report added.
The manner in which Mahomes pleaded is not currently available to the public.
Court filings show that defense attorney Brandon Joseph Davies, the social media influencer, is next due to appear in court on May 11.
According to a Kansas City Star report, the alleged incident took place on February 25 at the Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park, KS.
Owner Aspen Vaughn accused Mahomes of trying to kiss him twice and grabbing his neck, with video also emerging of the incident.
“He force-kissed me out of nowhere,” she told The Star. “And I tell him, pushing him away saying ‘what are you doing?
“Then he kept doing it two more times, the last time I was pushing him away and I can see on the cameras someone was outside the door to the office and I was yelling at them to come help because he’s big and massive.”
“It’s disgusting,” Vaughn reportedly told Mahomes at the time. “Like you’re a kid and he’s trying to say ‘we should be a power couple,’ and I’m like ‘clearly, you’re crazy right now. “
A lawyer for Mahomes, Brandan Davies denied the allegations at the time.
“Jackson did nothing wrong,” the attorney told the outlet. “Our investigation uncovered substantial evidence refuting the Jackson accuser’s claims, including statements from multiple witnesses.
“We have contacted law enforcement to provide them with the outcome of our investigation so they can get a full picture of the case.”
Young Mahomes has been in the spotlight for his viral behavior on TikTok, but has also caused controversy with his antics on the sidelines of his brother’s games.
In 2021, he poured water on a Baltimore Ravens fan after a loss to the Chiefs in a filmed incident. He then tweeted: “They were thirsty.”
A month later, just after the Chiefs played the Washington Commanders, Jackson shared a video of himself dancing to a tribute to the late Washington player Sean Taylor, who died in 2007.
He was called out on social media and he apologized for the incident on Twitter, writing, “Want to sincerely apologize for accidentally being on Sean Taylor #21 at FedEx Field.” We were asked to stand in this area and I meant absolutely no disrespect to him or his family.
Additionally, he was accused of repeatedly shoving a 19-year-old boy.
The teenage waiter, who chose to remain anonymous, said Mahomes would not allow access to the staff office.
“I was going to our office downstairs where the employees are in the employee area, and he’s downstairs for whatever reason,” the waiter said.
“I try to go to the office, and he pushes me out. … And he said, ‘No, get out, get out.’
Mahomes quietly made a comeback on social media last week nearly two months after being charged with assault and sexual assault.
Mahomes, who has a large following on TikTok and Instagram, had been exceptionally quiet on social media platforms in the weeks following the allegations, but resumed posting last week.
Last Wednesday, he posted on his Instagram Story appearing to mingle with NFL fans who came to Kansas City for the NFL Draft.
He also made his first TikTok in about two months as he synced the lyrics, “I’ve lost friends and found peace.”
He also posted a photo of himself beaming alongside his brother Patrick on his profile on Saturday.
