Patrick Mahomes Sr. Indicted on Felony DWI Charge

The father of Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes has gotten himself into trouble.

The elder Mahomes has been indicted on driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges.

The incident took place in February, and it is Mahomes Sr.’s third violation, which carries some hefty penalties if convicted.

Third Time is the Charm

Mahomes Sr. is a former professional athlete himself.

He was a Major League Baseball pitcher who played for the Twins, Red Sox, Mets, Rangers, Cubs, and Pirates.

In fact, that baseball influence is often cited as playing a major role in the success of his son, Patick Mahomes Jr, the QB for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Unfortunately for the NFL star, as great as his accomplishments have been on the field, his brother and father have been having problems off the field.

Mahomes’ brother, Jackson, was recently charged with sexual assault, but the charges were dismissed, with many believing that Patrick wrote a big check to make the assault charges go away.

The elder Mahomes will not have that luxury having been indicted in Texas for this third DWI.

State law carries a $10,000 fine, two to 10 years in prison, and a license suspension for up to two years.

He could be fined an additional state fine from $3,000 to $6,000 upon sentencing.

Mahomes Sr. was arrested in Tyler, TX, in February for having an open can of beer in his car when he was pulled over by officers.

When asked about his father’s legal issues, Patrick Mahomes Jr. has been very coy about his answers, not really wanting to discuss the matter publicly.

The only comments Mahomes really made on the matter were that his father was doing okay and that he was doing what needed to be done to rectify the situation.

Quite honestly, with all the drama that follows the Kansas City QB, it is amazing that was able to keep this head straight and lead his team to another Super Bowl championship.
